Attention Parishioners

Dear Parishioners,

I find that I made a mistake with regard to the Mass schedule for next week. Though it is true that I will be away from Thursday through Sunday, February 7, 8, 9, 10, I WILL NOT be going out of town on February 4 and 5. That’s the mistake. I’ll be away MARCH 4 and 5. So, again, Masses as usual on Monday and Tuesday, February 4 and 5. No Masses Thursday, Friday and Saturday, February 7, 8, 9, though I will satisfy the intentions in New Orleans. Father Balluff will substitute for me for both St. Joseph and Naperville Sunday Masses on February 10. Again, sorry. But the bulletin will have the CORRECT Mass schedule as well, i.e., as I articulated it here. There still remains the question of Latin class this Sunday. Do you participants want class that day? No matter what, Latin class will happen Sunday, February 17. God bless.

Dear Parishioners,

Sometimes things get away from me or I’ll concentrate on one particular thing and not address another. I remember telling you that Mass on Tuesday, February 5 will be at 6:00 PM. Remember I’ll be leaving town just for a day. There is no change for Mass on Monday, February 4, but I’ll be leaving Rockdale soon after that Mass.

Now as far as that thing I DID forget: I’ll also be leaving town from Thursday, February 7 and will return Sunday February 10. I will, of course, satisfy the Mass intentions for Thursday, Friday and Saturday, February 7, 8 and 9, while I’m away.

Father John Balluff, the Vicar for Clergy, will substitute for me at the 10AM Mass at St. Joseph on Sunday, February 10 and also at the 5:30 PM Mass at Ss. Peter and Paul in Naperville. Father Balluff is Pastor at St. Anthony Church in Joliet and is very much at home with the Extraordinary Form of the Mass.

This also changes things for the Latin class. But, I’ll tell you what I’ll do: I’ll hold Latin class this coming Sunday, February 3 if you wish. If not, we’ll have to wait until Sunday, February 17. So, Latin students, what would you like to do? God bless.

Fr. Magiera
