In conjunction with World Day of the Sick, St. Mary’s will have a special Mass of Anointing on February 15th at 12 noon. The Sacrament of Anointing will be administered following the Homily. As the Catechism states, “The anointing of the sick is not a sacrament for those only who are at the point of death. Hence, as soon as anyone of the faithful begins to be in danger of death from sickness or old age, the fitting time for him to receive this sacrament has certainly already arrived” (CCC 1514). We welcome all those seeking Anointing, as well as their friends and families, to attend. A light reception will take place afterwards, sponsored by the St. Luke’s Medical Society and the Lay Fraternity of St. Dominic.
Saturday, February 8, 2014 at 2p.m. The Knights of Columbus Museum, at 1 State Street in New Haven, will present a lecture, “Othodox Christianity in Early Russia: the Formation of a Tradition,” by Yale University history professor Paul Bushkovitch Ph.D. Admission and parking are free.
