Stations of the Cross, Fridays during Lent

All Saints Parish will be having Stations of the Cross on Fridays during Lent at 5:30 pm. The doors will open at 5 pm and will be locked at 5:30. Doors will be unlocked again at 6 pm for Confessions which begin immediately following the stations, until 7 pm. Please consider attending this wonderful opportunity to come together to reflect on the Passion of our Lord and to receive the Sacrament of Confession.

If you are unable to come on Fridays, you can participate in Stations of the Cross by visiting our parish YouTube Channel here.

“A Plenary indulgence is granted to the faithful, who make the pious exercise the Way of the Cross.

Those who are “impeded” can gain the same indulgence, if they spend at least one half an hour in pious reading and meditation on the Passion and Death of our Lord Jesus Christ.” -Enchiridion Indulgentiarum – No. 63

Informed Series begins Tuesday Night, February 23rd

One of the things we offered last Lent, but which got cancelled as we experienced the shut-downs caused by the initial response to Covid, was the showing of the INFORMED videos. INFORMED is an informational series about the problem of pornography. Ironically, but not
surprisingly, porn usage has increased during the heightened isolation brought on by the Covid pandemic. The videos are not just for those who personally struggle with pornography.

PORNOGRAPHY IS A BIG PROBLEM!

Why should you come to the INFORMED series? Consider these statistics:

-The average age for first exposure to pornography is 8 years old!
-Every second 28,258 internet users are viewing pornography online, and 372
internet users are typing sexual terms into search engines
-Every 38 minutes a new pornographic video is being produced in the United States
-There are 420 million pornographic webpages online right now!
-There are 68 million daily porn search engine requests (25% of all search engine requests)
-On average, there are 4.5 billion pornographic emails sent each day
-There are 100,000 child pornography websites worldwide

We cannot afford to bury our heads in the sand and pretend that pornography isn’t a big problem. Learn what you can do to protect and help yourself and your family. (Remember that if you are struggling with the weight of sin from pornography, that Jesus is always ready to heal and forgive you in the Sacrament of Confession.) The Beads & Brew Men’s Prayer Group will be hosting the showing of INFORMED on Tuesday evenings at 7:00pm in the parish hall. Starting the first Tuesday in Lent, February 23rd and running for five consecutive Tuesdays; March 2nd, 9th, 16th, and 23rd.  There are five installments  and each one stands on its own.

The seating in the parish hall provides the appropriate social distancing and those coming will need to wear a face mask. Doors open at 6:30, and will be locked at 7 pm.

January 12, 2021 Snow/Ice Day

Due to icy road conditions, today, January 12, is a snow/ice day!

– The 9 am Mass will be livestreamed only (not open to in-person)
– The Parish office will remain closed until 11:00 am (if poor conditions continue, this may need to be reassessed)
– As was the case before the cancellation, there will be no Confessions held today.
– For any questions about Adoration at St. Mary’s, please check with your captain. And, as always, use your best judgement.
Stay safe.

Winter Weather Policy


In the event that Alpena schools are closed due to weather
(snow, ice,
and even COLD ) . . .

When the schools are closed due to adverse weather/road conditions, all morning parish activities will be cancelled, and the parish office and parish center doors will not be open until 11:00 am. The 9:00am Mass will still be celebrated but will be available via livestream only (no in-person attendance). The assumption will be that parish activities will resume at 11:00 am, unless determined otherwise for that particular day, and if that were the case information will be available on the parish phone message, and on our website and other social media.

 

Update on Fr. Scott

Not quite the way Fr. Scott planned on spending his birthday today, as he has been diagnosed with pneumonia. He has been told to rest, and continue to stay home until he is well again. While Fr. Scott and Fr. Joe share a home, they are continuing to take safety precautions to minimize exposure. He is grateful to all who sent along acts of  kindness (cards, prayers, etc).  If you miss hearing his words of wisdom, you can tune into Relevant Radio on Saturdays at 12 pm, or visit our parish website https://alpenacatholics.org/lets-talk-catholic/ and listen to his podcast “Let’s Talk Catholic.”

 

Please continue to pray for him.

May God bless everyone of you. Pray about the absence of the real Presence in your life. That we may always thirst and long for His company.
