October 2, 2022

Traditionally, October is dedicated to the Holy Rosary. Over the centuries, much has been written in praise of this popular devotion. When one thinks of a devotional practice in honor of the Virgin Mary, the Rosary immediately comes to mind. While it does not enjoy the supreme value that the Holy Mass and other liturgical prayer possesses, we can say that the Rosary is a very powerful devotion because it intimately unites us to the life of Jesus Christ as it is joined to the life of Mary. Here at Assumption, the Rosary is prayed publicly each Sunday after the 9:30 and 11:30am Masses and after 8:30am Mass on a daily basis. Also, there are individuals in the parish, which make rosaries that are distributed in schools, hospitals, and the foreign missions. We take this opportunity to thank them for efforts which bring consolation to so many.

During October, let’s take time to say the Rosary each day. Our Lady promises that it is well worth the effort not only for ourselves, but for the world as well. From Tuesday through Friday of this week, Fr. Louis and I will 
be attending The Cleveland Diocesan Priests’ Convocation. From Wednesday through Friday morning, there will be NO Mass. The Mass Intentions for these days will be offered by Fr. Louis and myself at the Convocation. We will keep you in our prayers while at the Convocation. 

† For those who would like to receive Holy Communion on the First Friday, October 7th, there will be a Mass at 6:00pm. 
† Daily Mass will resume on Saturday, October 8th at 8:30am after the devotions to Our Lady of Perpetual Help at 8:25am. 

We will see you at the Pet Blessing this afternoon from 1:00-4:00pm this Sunday, October 2nd. Much is being prepared for your pet’s enjoyment, and yours too!
