URGENT ANNOUNCEMENT
for worshipers at Saint Jude Church:

For the weekend of July 23rd and July 24th
there will be NO AIR CONDITIONING in the church.

Starting July 18th (Monday) until July 29th, the Builders will be
dismantling and relocating the huge HVAC equipment to a new
foundation as the construction site matures. This will have no
effect at Immaculate Conception that weekend.

Ordinary Time

The Catholic Church just celebrated the great solemnity of
Pentecost. Now a new liturgical season begins, called
"Ordinary Time". Here, the term "ordinary" means "set in order,
arranged in a sequence." Thus, the next several Sundays are all arranged
to follow the Gospels that prolaim the works and teachings of Jesus
as He fulfilled His public ministry and brought to this world His
salvation and reconciliation. The color of the liturgical vestments
is green, representing the life that comes from following Christ.
