Dear Friends,
This Saturday, June 25, is the Memorial of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  We will celebrate Holy Mass at St. Hugo Parish at 11:00 am.  For this Saturday only, our observance will be in the large church, NOT the stone chapel.  (First Saturdays for July and August will be in the stone chapel from 10:00 am-1:00 pm.)
The schedule is …
(9:30-11:00 am) Confessions & Exposition
(11:00 am) Holy Mass (includes Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary)
(12:00 pm) Exposition & Rosary
(1:45 pm) Benediction
(2:00 pm) Close
Our construction is proceeding forward.  Please pray for our “renovation construction” and for the overall maintenance of the shrine in your prayers since challenges always arise.  St. Joseph, help us!
Especially while we are closed, your Mass Intentions are especially appreciated to help us not only pay our bills but, like everyone else, deal with rising costs.
If you need Confession, you can always contact Fr. Alex for an appointment.
It is important to maintain a consistent level of prayer and fervor.  Anti-Christian and anti-life sentiment, with its attendant intimidation or violence, is on the rise.  However, Jesus is Lord and Our Lady is the New Ark of the Covenant who, like the Israelites with the first Ark, goes ahead of us into our spiritual battles.
“Make it known that the Sacred Heart of Jesus wishes that the Immaculate Heart of Mary be honored with Him.  People must ask for peace through the Immaculate Heart, For God has entrusted the peace of the world to her.” (St. Jacinta of Fatima, 1920)
To communicate with me, please email me directly at [email protected] or call/text me at (313) 727-9784.  Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us!
In Jesus, Mary & Joseph,
