|Ora et labora - prayer and work ...St. Benedict|
Daily reception of the Eucharist strengthens us for our journey and is an important part of the faith life of our Parish. During the school year, Monday through Friday, Masses are normally at 7am. During the summer, Mass is at 8am. On Holy Days of Obligation, the Mass time is often moved forward to allow attendance by students of Sacred Heart School. Please check the Church Bulletin for schedule changes.
Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, Daily Mass is usually in Our Lady's Chapel, located between our Sanctuary and the Rectory. The Chapel is accessed from the Sanctuary. On most Wednesdays, Daily Mass is in the Sisters of St. Joseph Convent Chapel, located across Basilica Drive from the Parish Hall. The Chapel is in the basement of the Convent and is accessed by an outside door at the rear of the Convent.
Those who attend Daily Mass are part of the prayer-support of our Parish. We have Eucharistic Prayers at Mass which join with world-wide sacrifices of the Mass. As a group, we pray for our needs and those of our Church. We also have daily Parish intentions, which can be requested by talking to our Clerical Secretary, JoAnn Leonard, at 717-637-2721.
Our Daily Masses are usually about thirty minutes long, to accomodate the work schedules of our Sisters of St. Joseph. Please join us in song and prayer as we Celebrate the Mass.
