Sunday Obligation Resumes June 5-6

Posted by on May 29, 2021 in Announcements

Archbishop Naumann has chosen the weekend of June 5-6 as the occasion on which the dispensation from the obligation by the faithful to attend Mass shall be lifted. Beginning with Masses for that weekend, all the Catholic faithful residing within the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas must return to observing the precept of the Church to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation. Those who suffer from underlying health concerns or compromised immunity, or who have genuinely serious concerns about the risk of contracting disease are not bound by the obligation to attend Mass.

Additionally, and as has always been the case whether one is obligated to attend Mass or not, we are nonetheless obliged to observe the Third Commandment. The faithful who are unable to attend Mass, like all the faithful, should refrain from unnecessary work and avoid unnecessary shopping, and should spend time in leisure, rest and prayer.

We thank Archbishop Nauman for establishing our community as a personal parish of his archdiocese. This is the fruit of and a testament to the decades of prayer and labor of our clergy and laity. Thanks are due to all the priests who led and labored for this community over the years, perhaps most especially Fr. Fongemie who led the community to obtain its own church and began the process of becoming a parish. Thanks also to the lay members of our parish, especially those who have supported us from the beginning, sticking it out through the long period when we were sharing churches with other parishes. While we look forward to what the future holds for our parish, we should all be profoundly grateful for all the labor which has made this possible.

Fr. DeGuzman was formally installed as the first pastor of our parish by Archbishop Naumann in a small ceremony on September 17.

Posted by on Jan 24, 2020 in Announcements

The eight days from January 18, the feast of the Chair of St. Peter in Rome, to January 25, the Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul, are kept as the devotional Octave of Church Unity,

ANT. That they all may be one, as Thou, Father, in me and I in Thee; that they also may be one in Us; that the world may believe that Thou hast sent Me.
V. I say unto thee, thou art Peter.
R. And upon this rock I will build my Church.
Let us pray. Lord Jesus Christ, who didst say to Thine Apostles: Peace I leave you, My peace I give you; consider not my sins, but the faith of Thy Church, and deign to keep it in peace and unity according to Thy will; Who livest and reignest, God, through all eternity. Amen.
