First Friday and First Saturday Devotions
From Father Colin's Pastor's Corner . . .
There is a rich and beautiful devotion in the life of the Church called First Friday and First Saturday devotions. We have largely lost this custom in parish life. Devotions are simple gifts to the Lord. Perhaps we can compare them to giving flowers to a loved one on St. Valentine's Day or singing Happy Birthday, or visiting our loved ones around the holidays. They are simple ways to show love. So devotions in the life of the Church, like attending Mass on the First Friday or First Saturday of the month, reveal a small act of love on our part for God and help make reparation for the sins of the world.
Our Mass schedule makes it easier for many of you to do this, including the young! Friday Mass at St. Katharine Drexel is at 7 AM, and First Saturday Mass is generally at 8 AM.
