My brothers and sisters,
It’s hard to believe how time moves so quickly and that the St. John’s Columbus Italian Festival will be here shortly. This is a great time of year for both the Parish of St. John’s and Sacred Heart as we welcome so many people to Italian Village to celebrate the Italian culture. I know that this Festival requires the hard work of all parishioners of both parishes. So I would like to thank all of you for your hard work, time, and dedication in advance.
I also ask that you please note the schedule changes of Mass times the weekend of the Festival, October 7th, 8th and 9th. As per tradition, there will be no Saturday evening vigil Mass at Sacred Heart on Saturday, October 8th. On Sunday, October 9th, Mass will be one hour earlier at 10:00 a.m. at Sacred Heart and one hour later at 10:30 a.m. at St. John’s under the main Festival tent. This slight change in the Mass schedule is only during this one weekend for the Festival and so I thank you for your understanding, I also hope that early communication of this change will help as you plan ahead.
Have a great week!
Fr. Tony Lonzo
Associate Administrator Sacred Heart and St. John the Baptist
