What’s a Missal?

This Missal that is changing is the one that the priest uses   on the altar.  This contains the prayers for both Sunday and weekday liturgies.  Some may remember the days of our having missals that we brought to church with us.  We now use missalettes and hymnals in church.  These books will contain the new prayers for those in the congregation, so you won’t need your own book for church.  So we can get used to the changes, there will be pew cards available to help us  all follow the new prayers used during mass beginning the first Sunday of Advent, 2011.

Next week: more questions and answers on the Missal.


Stars For Our Troops

The Stars For Our Troops Program takes worn, used American Flags and turns them into a prized possession for an American Soldier at home, on base or overseas.  Volunteers lovingly cut each embroidered star from the flag, dispose of the stripes properly, and place each star into a tiny plastic bag with a card.

The card reads: “I am part of our America Flag that has flown over a home in the U.S.A. I can no longer fly.  The sun and winds have caused me to become tattered and torn.  Please carry me as a reminder that you are not forgotten.”

You may drop your old American Flags at the rectory or send to:

Gettysburg Flag Works,  715 Columbia Turnpike East Greenbush, New York 12061 Attn: Stars for Our Troops
