A reflection on daily Mass

Daily Mass is usually celebrated in the old church.

Almost 14 years ago, parishioner Julie Musselman started attending daily Mass when her oldest son started kindergarten at St. Raphael Catholic School. Over the years, a community of communicants has gathered there daily, sharing communion and life. They have become, in effect, a church family–a microcosm of the larger parish congregation that gathers each weekend, an intimate celebration of the Eucharist, usually followed by a devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary in the form of a rosary.

Over the years, too, daily communicants have gone on to their reward. In her blog, A Catholic Home Journal, Julie reflects on the daily Mass and "the great cloud of witnesses" who have gone before.

All are welcome to join the daily Mass at 8 a.m. Monday through Saturday (Tuesday and Thursdays in the new church.) There is also a Wednesday evening Mass at 7 p.m.

Come and meet Christ in the quiet of the Eucharist and get to know your fellow parishioners.
