October 4th. will be our First Saturday Mass for the month of October. All are invited to join us for Low Mass at 12:00 noon at our Mass site, Queen of Heaven Cemetery Chapel.
Although tomorrow, the first Saturday of the month, coincides with the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, and although it is traditional to bless animals on that day, please consider the limitations.
1) It will be very hot and that could be dangerous for animals left in cars during Mass.
2) Dogs--and I assume other animals--are not permitted in the cemetery.
If animals were brought in carriers, and left in cars that were cool, we could offer a blessing. Otherwise, after Mass, there will be a prayer for the well-being of these creatures of God whom God has given us for our good.
When we have a church of our own, it may be easier to do this. For now, we have to respect the rules of the cemetery.
