The Ascension of the Lord

Posted in: Liturgy

This weekend we celebrate the Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord. Please see the links below to view the recorded Mass and participate well, using the linked worship aids.

It is difficult to believe we celebrated Easter Sunday seven weeks ago! Next weekend the Easter season will culminate with our celebration of Pentecost, when many parishes throughout the Diocese will begin to invite the faithful back to church for a gradual return to the public celebration of Mass. Please be sure and view/listen to the announcements and directives offered at the conclusion of this weekend’s Mass. As I mention, “It’s not going to look, sound, and feel like home for a while.” More detailed directives will be communicated in a separate posting and e-mail to our parishioners over the Memorial Day holiday. Please continue to be safe and exercise good judgment in these weeks ahead.

    My favorite Easter song (closing hymn) – twice this season! Thanks, Aga! And I have to ask, what is that behind the piano? Naturally it is something for the music ministry, but it looks like the world’s largest bread box. 🙂

      I believe it contains the speaker/sound system. A great Easter hymn, yes!

      Dear Lisa,
      Thank you for your nice words. This big box behind the piano to my right, it’s our sound system console where I can control all of our microphones and I can also record our singing and playing. The biggest box behind me is the organ.

    There certainly is much to reflect upon in today’s (Ascension) homily. I found it to be both comforting and challenging to consider, “If something is worth doing, it is worth doing poorly!” Thank you, G. K. Chesterton and Fr. Terry.

      Thank you, Alice – a challenge and comfort to me at the same time, too. Enjoy this beautiful Memorial Day weekend!
