DRESS CODE FOR MAIN BUILDING – Please make a consistent effort to observe the dress code in the building: Women and girls - dresses that cover the knee and appropriate top (if need be, carry an extra wraparound dress in the car to use when needed). Men and boys - no shorts or tank tops (carry a pair of sweat pants or the like in the car to use when needed).
CONGRATULATIONS! To Joseph and Melissa Morgan, who were united in the bonds of Holy Matrimony yesterday at the Lourdes Grotto. Our prayers and best wishes are with them.
ST. MECHTILDE MUSIC FESTIVAL - This event held at Our Lady of the Snow parish in Denver July 11-13 was a great success! Hopefully, more will be able to attend next year. In the meantime, you can hear some of the recordings here. Click on the links for Requiem Mass and Missa Brevis by Palestrina. There are also other recordings by Our Lady of the Snow parish choir there as well.
SECOND COLLECTION NEXT SUNDAY, AUG. 3 - This will be the last monthly offering we take up for the support of the good Sisters during the summer months.
ROOM 200 NO LONGER A BABY-SITTING ROOM - For the past few years we have been trying allocate a room as a museum for Mt. St. Michael’s artifacts and have recently decided on Room 200. Hence, babysitting will not be available to the same extent as before. Instead, babysitting will be done in Room 204, once the Christmas decoration storage has been removed. On occasion, when a larger room is needed for babysitting, One of the classrooms will be made available.
VIGIL LIGHTS - Please don’t bring your own candles to burn in the votive candle racks! When non-standard candles are used, they are more apt to overheat and crack the glass holder.
CHANGE OF ADDRESS OR PHONE NUMBER? Please inform the parish secretary so that the parish list can be kept as accurate as possible. Thank you.
FIRST FRIDAY ELECTIVES - do you have a talent or special trade that you would like to share with the High School students? We are looking for people who can teach one Friday a month. Please help us bring classes to our students. Contact Sr. Marie Vianney at 462-4335 for more information or if you have questions.
ST. MICHAEL'S UNIFORM SHOP will be open on Mondays from 9-12 or by appointment. Please call Joanna Gilchrist at 828-2050.
GRADE SCHOOL YEARBOOKS ARE READY. The pre-ordered grade school yearbooks are ready and may be picked up in the school/parish office. The cost is $10. If you did not order one, there are a limited number of extras, but they are first-come, first-served.
TEXTILES DRIVE - the class of 2015 is continuing the Textiles Drive. Please leave unwanted items in the porter station. We are accepting clothing, fabric, shoes, and books. Thank you for your support.
BAKE SALE FOR NICHOLE DRAHMAN - a bake sale is scheduled for Sunday, August 3rd after the morning Masses. Nichole’s medications have gone up in price, please help support her and her family. Thank you for your generosity.
MEN ONLY CHOIR! Men willing and able to sing for a one time all-male choir are invited to join in for (3) preparatory rehearsals and one Mass. This is a great opportunity for those who wish they could be in choir but due to a busy schedule can’t make the regular commitment. The rehearsals are Wednesday from 7pm-9pm on August 6th, 13th, 20th, with 10:30 a.m. Mass on Aug 24th. Please call John to RSVP at (509) 953-0816. Knowing who is coming ahead of time will be most helpful in selecting the most comfortable and beautiful music for our Lord.
HOLY ROSARY CEMETERY – Remember that our cemetery is a sacred place, and was solemnly consecrated by the Bishop (in 1993). Only those who are practicing traditional Catholics are permitted to be buried in the section that was consecrated. When visiting the cemetery, always conduct yourself in a reverent and prayerful spirit.
SUNDAY SERMONS AVAILABLE ON CD – Would you like an audio copy of a recent sermon? Order forms are available in the vestibule.
SOME THOUGHTS ON VIDEO GAMES AND COMPUTERS (from Love & Logic)- Over the past two decades, video and computer games have become dramatically more fast-paced, realistic, and stimulating. Not long after their introduction, I began to suspect that these games had the same addictive potential as drugs, alcohol, and gambling. Today, family therapists and researchers have confirmed my fears. Listed below are some tips for helping your child avoid getting hooked:
So-called “educational” games, videos, and shows are no substitute for real-life learning activities, involving movement, problem-solving, and human relationships.
Please see the Dress Code for attendance at Mass at Mount St. Michael.
Our decorum at Holy Mass can give greater honor and glory to Almighty God, give good example and edification to others, and increase our faith and devotion to the Real Presence of our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. The following are practical examples of the rule of decorum we should observe in church:
• Always dress in a manner appropriate to divine worship.
• Be on time for the start of Mass.
• Upon entering the church, bless yourself with holy water (using the right hand). Genuflect on the right knee in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
• Avoid using the center aisle, especially if Mass has begun. Use the side aisle and fill toward the center.
• The last three pews in the church should be reserved for families with small children and those who may have to leave the church during Mass. Baby toys, food items, gum, and strollers are always inappropriate in church.
• During Communion, please keep the line moving in a pious and orderly manner. Promote piety and prayerful contemplation by folding the hands in a pious manner.
• At the end of Mass, allow the celebrant to leave the altar before exiting the church. Make sure to genuflect to the Blessed Sacrament when leaving.
