Come Worship With Us!

Join us for Worship at our Franciscan Chapel, 1004 N. College Avenue in Columbia, Missouri.

Saturday mass is at 5pm, followed by fellowship (about 90 minutes.) Tuesday and Thursday mass at Noon (about thirty minutes)

All baptized Christians are welcome to receive Holy Communion

June 18-25, 2017

Our upcoming readings for the Saturday Eucharist on June 24 are Jeremiah 20: 7-13; psalm 69; Romans 6: 1-11 and Matthew 10: 24-33.  Jeremiah is so troubled by the resistance he has gotten that he says he will not speak again, but by grace cannot help himself. He must speak in the name of the Lord. Romans 6 establishes that the dying and rising of Christ Jesus is OUR dying and rising.  We are to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.  The Matthean reading has us disciples being right there with Jesus.  When His message is rejected (as we proclaim it), be ready for that.  But be comforted by the fact that if we confess Him before people, He will recognize us in the presence of the Father.

This week there will be NO EUCHARIST on Tuesday June 20 or Thursday June 22.  YES there will be regular Saturday 5 pm Eucharist on June 24.  The Fraternity business meeting will follow that evening.

Have a blessed week.  Love to all. 

- Fr. John, OFP
