After discussing the idea with various parishioners over the past few months and consulting with our newly formed Sacred Worship Committee, I have decided to change our Saturday evening Mass time from 5:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. This is a better time for the many elderly who attend Mass on Saturday evening and it avoids the dinner hour which causes many parishioners to seek Saturday evening Mass at other parishes. We will begin this new schedule on Saturday, December 1 (The First Sunday of Advent). Those who are scheduled for the various ministries at 5:30 p.m. will be rescheduled for the new 4:00 p.m. time unless otherwise directed. At the end of February we will assess how well the 4:00 p.m. time is working. If it isn’t, we would return to the 5:30 p.m. time; if it is working well we will keep the Mass at 4:00 p.m.—Fr. Robertson.
