Pastor's Message

 

Brothers and Sisters,

 

At 12:00 Noon Mass this weekend (Mar 22), the Third Scrutiny was celebrated.  These are Rites of the Church on the third, fourth, and fifth Sundays of Lent.

 

As I wrote the last two weeks, the purpose of Scrutinys is for those preparing to be Baptized at Easter but also to help us RENEW our Baptismal Promises. “Scrutiny” is a word from the old English meaning, to examine very carefully (to scrutinize).

 

Third Scrutiny

 

To help us Scrutinize and RENEW our Promises of Baptism, the Catholic Church uses the 3 great Conversion Gospels from the Cycle A Sunday Lectionary: The Samaritan Woman at the Well - John 4; The Man Born Blind – John 9; and The Raising of Lazarus – John 11.

 

There are three parts to the Rite: Special Intercessions,  Rite with the Prayer of Exorcism and the Anointing with Oil of the Catechumens.

 

Last week I wrote about “Exorcism” and today about the Anointing with Oil of Catechumens.

 

There are 3 different Oils consecrated by the Bishop.  The Oil of the Sick, Oil of Catechumens, and Sacred Chrism. The Priest anoints the Catechumens with a prayer for divine strength for each of them to be protected from evil and to pray for their dependence on God.

 

Our prayer is that God will strengthen us who are already Baptized as we prepare to Renew our Baptismal Promises  at Easter.

 

           Sincerely in the Lord,

                    Father Richard York, your Pastor

JOSEPH SABA EAGLE SCOUT PROJECTEagle Image from Flier

 

Description:

Hello! My Name is Joseph Saba and for my Eagle Project I am converting a rundown screened-in Lanai into a gathering place for all of the youth of St. Andrew Parish. This will help the youth because they will have a place to socialize and have fun, and will create long term memories and connections, and will make St. Andrew Parish a place that the youth will treasure as a great memory.
