Sept. 7, 2018 – With the horrors of the sad revelations of the last few weeks on his mind, Archbishop Lori is setting aside Friday, September 7th as a Day of Reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. He has asked all the clergy to take part in Masses this day and invites us to join them if we are able. He also asks that we consider joining him and his fellow bishops and priests in a day of fasting. The Archbishop says that of course the bishops have a special obligation to repent but invites any members of the laity who are willing to join him for the sake of the church we love.
“In this way, as a family of faith, we might join together in seeking the grace of healing for victims of sexual abuse and reconciliation for those who have been scandalized, alienated and disillusioned.”
Masses will be said at 8:30 am and 7:00 pm at St. Jane Frances de Chantal in Riviera Beach, MD.
