Suggestion for Questions for Father about the Mass:
Since not everyone is bold enough to speak up and time is limited, please feel free to send questions on the topic of the Eucharistic celebration to Fr. O'Reilly's attention at firstname.lastname@example.org or hit reply to this Flocknote and we will compile a list of questions that he can address either at the next sessions or a special Q/A session.
Keep The Flame Alive!
WEDNESDAY EVENINGS at 7:00-8:30 PM
New Series just starting on the Eucharist and the Roman Missal.
Join us! Come deepen your understanding of the Mass!
Fr. O’Reilly will take us on a journey through the Roman Missal in the next series! The Roman missal is the big red book you see on the Altar, full of the the prayers, chants and instructions for the celebration of Mass (the Eucharist). Don't miss this opportunity to become more familiar with the wonderful prayers it contains and how it leads us through the Mass.
Everyone is invited to join in at 7:00 PM on Wednesdays via Zoom.
Mark your calendars and send an email to Donna at email@example.com for further information and the Zoom links.
It is a good habit to be in!
Greetings everyone! This is going to be a great series and in order to get the most out of it Fr. O'Reilly asks that we all take a time to get familiar with and start reading the General Instructions for the Roman Missal (GIRM) so that we are familiar with the content.
Join us on Wednesdays and grow in your appreciation for and understanding of the Source and Summit of our Faith - the celebration of the Eucharist!
If you could not make it last Wednesday you can still join any time.

Holy Hour of Reparation
Friday, March 1, 2024
The First Friday of each month immediately following the
12:10 Mass in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel
Jesus implores us to stay, watch, and pray with Him, just as He did to His apostles: "My soul is sorrowful even unto death. Stay you here and watch with Me (Matthew 26:38)." Jesus told St. Margaret Mary to "make reparation for the ingratitude of men. Spend an hour in prayer to appease divine justice, to implore mercy for sinners, to honor Me, to console Me for My bitter suffering when abandoned by My apostles, when they did not watch one hour with me."
During this holy hour of reparation before the Blessed Sacrament, we will pray a Spiritual Communion, Acts of Reparation and Consecration to the Sacred Heart, and preparation for a Happy Death. Holy Hour of Reparation is a devotion much needed by our world today, amid its tragedies and sin.

Brown Bag Lunch (BBL) Ministry!
The Cathedral Brown Bag Lunch Ministry is pleased to announce that, for the third consecutive year, the Rotary Club of South Sacramento (RCSS) has presented a Grant Award to the BBL!
RCSS supports many diverse community services programs throughout the greater Sacramento area. The BBL is honored to be recognized for its continued service to the downtown Sacramento poor and homeless community and to be among the diverse group of 2023 RCSS award recipients. Our heartfelt thanks to RCSS for the generous award of $1,500 and for its compassion for those in need.
In addition to the RCSS grant award, BBL volunteers would like to thank our monthly and constant supporters who repeatedly give of their time, talent, and treasure. You remain a blessing to BBL. Many thanks also to parishioners, students, families and individuals who lovingly, and generously, donate lunches, water, and other lunch supplies to BBL. During the month of November 2023, all these kind acts of charity allowed BBL volunteers to distribute 2,300 lunches to our downtown brothers and sisters.
If you would like to donate lunches or lunch supplies to feed our downtown poor and homeless community, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
