Our Lady of Lourdes Needs You It has come to the attention of the Liturgy Committee that due to retirements, age and interest, our Ushers and Welcome Committee members, need some assistance in providing help, at our three weekend Masses. The duties are simple, the requirements are few. What we need is for you, the men, women and young adults, of our parish, to step forward and help us in our time of need. We would like each and every person present to seriously consider volunteering for this important ministry. Bob Lujan, the Head Usher, and leader of this ministry, will conduct a series of training programs that will help you become indoctrinated in this important ministry. Volunteers will be available after Mass to answer any questions or enroll you in the training sessions which will begin soon.
Sign Ups for Gift Bearers
We are looking for families or individuals to sign up to carry the gifts during Mass, a sign up sheet is in the back. We encourage all to sign up!!
TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
It’s Independence Day week, and there is a link worth tracing between the Declaration of Independence and the language of liturgy. One of the signers of the Declaration on that July 4 long ago was Charles Carroll, probably the wealthiest man in the colonies and one of the few Catholics on the political scene. As a flourish to his signature, he sought to distinguish himself from other prominent citizens bearing the same name by penning “Charles Carroll of Carrolltown”—a defiant “come and get me if you dare” postscript aimed at the British. Carroll’s brother John was a priest and patriot who in 1789 was given the task of organizing the Catholic Church in this country. By 1791 he had assembled a synod, or assembly of delegates, to launch that task formally. Archbishop Carroll wanted to gain acceptance of our faith by American people who mistrusted our customs and could not comprehend our liturgy. He made the amazing proposal to Rome that our liturgy should be prayed not in Latin, but in the vernacular, English. His wish was denied, but one hundred sixty years later, his deep desire helped the American bishops and scholars at the Second Vatican Council to win the vote in favor of the vernacular not just for the United States, but for the Church throughout the world. —Rev.
