January 1 is the Octave of Christmas, Mary, the Holy Mother of God. Though dispensation to attend Mass is in effect, there will be one Mass at each church: 12/31 at 6pm at St. Mary/St. Charles, with Fr. Duane, which will be live streamed in Facebook, 1/1 at 9am at Sacred Heart with Fr. Jim, also live streamed, and at 10am at St. Clement with Fr. Duane. As we celebrate our blessed Mother, let us pray for a much better New Year filled with God’s grace as we move back to “normalcy” come this summer! Happy New Year.
