The Fellowship of Saint Alban

A Roman Catholic Community of the Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter

Henrietta, New York May 10, 2013

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Here comes Pentecost!  This is one of two important days within our liturgical calendar when we use red as the col
or. At least I will. And I hope you do too. Color up! And invite a guest!

We want to welcome Jonathan Lane to our impeccable yet doughty Saint Albanites who serve on Sundays at the Altar. We will now have Crucifer, Thurifer and Boat. With the addition of one more Acolyte we can add Torches. Then one more will give us a Gospel Book Bearer. Then eventually, Canopy Carriers, Flabella ...... remember, excess in the worship of God is, quite simply, never excess!


+ 20 year anniversary of Latin community.

+ High mass with soon to be ordained priest Peter Mottola

+ Great music.

This is all the information we have for this event right now. It is to be hoped that more will be forthcoming later on. If all works out we will be sharing Mass with these fine folks on that date. Stay tuned!

Collect for St. Albans Day

Almighty God, by whose grace and power your holy martyr Alban triumphed over suffering and was faithful even to death: Grant us, who now remember him in thanksgiving, to be so faithful in our witness to you in this world, that we may receive with him the crown of life; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Pope Francis I says his first sermon as pope in the Sistine Chapel on March 14, 2013.

(CNSNews.com) -- When he said Mass for the College of Cardinals in the Sistine Chapel on Thursday, newly elected Pope Francis I warned these princes of the church against professing what he called “the worldliness of the devil, a demonic worldliness.”

“Anyone who does not pray to the Lord prays to the devil,” Francis said, quoting Leon Bloy, a French writer who died in 1917, and who converted from agnosticism to Catholicism.

“When we profess Christ without the Cross, we are not disciples of the Lord, we are worldly: we may be bishops, priests, cardinals, popes, but not disciples of the Lord,” the pope told the cardinals.
