November 6 - 20, 2021

NOTE WELL: The Prengers have to be at a family wedding on Saturday, November 6, SO--there will be NO SATURDAY EUCHARIST on November 6th.
Note this too.  Next Saturday is when we fall back to STANDARD TIME.

This is to inform all of you who follow us at the Franciscan Chapel and join us for liturgies in person or online that there will not be a FRIAR'S FOOTNOTES coming for several weeks.  Sharon and I along with our sons Micah and Josiah have an opportunity to make a pilgrimage to the Holy Land led by our dear friend, Fr. Mike Quinn.  Please hold us in prayer because there is so much more hassle in traveling during this era of Covid-19. Look for the next FOOTNOTES at the end of November as we begin our Advent preparations.

This means there will be no scheduled Eucharists at the Franciscan Chapel till after Thanksgiving weekend.  That also means no broadcast of our Eucharists on our Fraternity Facebook page.  Sorry for the inconvenience, but we felt this wonderful opportunity could not be passed up.

We trust that we will be back for a simple Eucharist at 5 pm on Saturday, November 20th, and plan for our usual THIRD SATURDAY Fraternity business meeting on Go To Meeting at 7 pm on November 20th.

Again, we will carry you with us as we go to the LAND where Jesus came among us and offered His Life for our Salvation.

Much love to all,

Fr. John ofp
