Soon to be ordained, Rev. Jonas Gaydosh will celebrate -God willing- his first Solemn Mass in Sanford on Sunday, June 21st. You are all invited to join us in thanksgiving for this event!
Sunday, June 21st - Solemnity of the Sacred Heart
9:30 am: First Solemn Mass of Fr. Jonas Gaydosh
After the Mass, Father will give his first blessing at the communion rail.
Blessing of the Restored House: Saint James'
A special blessing will be given at St. James, the house located at the southwest of the property. After months of repairs and restoration, this beautiful building is ready to be used for the Ignatian Retreats to be preached this summer. Come and visit this beautiful house!
An apéritif for all will be served after the blessing to celebrate. May Saint James bless Fr. Gaydosh, his future apostolate, and this house of retreat.
"A plenary indulgence is granted to a priest on the occasion of the first Mass he celebrates with some solemnity and to the faithful who devoutly assist at the same Mass" (Enchiridion of Indulgences: Norms and Grants, #44).
