IV Lent, St. Joseph's Day, and V Lent (and of zeppole withdrawals and worship sheets)

Friday, March 19, is the Solemnity of St. Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.  9:00 Mass that morning will be in the Church.  Sadly, with the distancing rules still in place, we can't have them in the hall this year.  But we can definitely come to Mass, honor the good saint who was the great protector of Mary and Jesus, then go out and bring some zeppoles home.  If anyone knows the best place to get them, please let me know.  I'm considering the Original Italian Bakery on Atwood Ave. near St. Rocco's, since I travel north to go home.

Also, starting this weekend, you will see the Mass guides in trifold form.  You can fit more content in them if needed, and although the font sizes are exactly the same as the previous format, the smaller pages make these fonts come out at you more.  They're not swimming in the paper like before.  So instead of four 8-1/2 x 11 pages, there are now six 5-2/3 x 11 pages.  Width-wise, the new pages are almost like that of a standard pew-edition hymnal (in which the pages are 6 x 9 usually).



- Messa Popolare Laus Tibi Christe (Kyrie) (Sundays)
- Mass XVII (Sanctus and Agnus) (Sundays)
- Mass VIII (Gloria, Sanctus, and Agnus) (St. Joseph's Day)
- Save us, Savior of the World (ICEL chant) (Memorial) (All Masses)
- Amen adapted from the Sanctus of Mass VIII (All Masses)

The rest:
