Parish Mission Planned in Sutton

SUTTON (SNR) - St. Mary Parish of Sutton and St. Helena Parish of Grafton invite all to a parish mission, "Renew the Fire of His Love in your Hearts and Homes," Nov. 14-17 at St. Mary Church.

The mission will be conducted Sunday through Wednesday. Mission talks will be presented each day at 7 p.m. They will be given by Father Bill Gaffney, CSSR and Mrs. Gloria Anson of of the Sacred Heart Apostolate of Syracuse, N.Y.

The pair conducted a parish mission at St. Mary Parish in 2004, pastor Father William Holoubek said, but this one is different.

"It is a development of the first one," he said. The original parish mission was conducted in more than 20 parishes in the Lincoln Diocese alone, so a wide audience of Catholics who attended those missions will benefit from attending. Of course, those who were unable to attend earlier parish missions are also encouraged to attend.

Mrs. Anson said the mission is "an invitation for families to invite Jesus to come into their home." She added that in the last few years she has seen what looks like "an urgency from the heart of Jesus for families to invite Jesus to be the center of their lives."

There will be refreshments served at the parish hall after each evening presentation.

An introductory talk and a special individual blessing of children will take place at the 6:30 p.m. Mass Saturday, Nov. 13 at Sutton, and on Sunday at the 9 a.m. Mass at Sutton and the 10:45 a.m. Mass at Grafton.

The daily Mass schedule for Monday through Wednesday will change to a noon Mass with a special teaching given daily by Mrs. Anson concerning Pope John Paul II’s "Call to Holiness."

On Sunday evening the topic will be "Miracles of Grace Through the Enthronement," teaching that Jesus is with all in both struggles and joys.

Monday’s topic is "Healing For Families" and on Tuesday evening Father Gaffney will talk about "Reconciliation - Deep Interior Peace."
