Confessions: Priority should be given especially the last thirty minutes of confessions to those who drive a great distance, have little children, elderly and or are disabled. Those living in closer proximity please be here early; Confessions begin at 8:00 a.m. Of course, and I think that it goes without saying, that those who live in close proximity to the church, should come for confessions on Saturday morning if at all possible..

Sidewalk Snow Removal: I need help cleaning off the sidewalks before Mass on Sunday mornings. I would like to ask that the men of the parish meet upstairs in the second floor classroom after Mass this Sunday (Nov 12) in order to work out a schedule, where some of the men are would be able to arrive early to clear away snow off the sidewalks around the church. This would allow a shared responsibility through the winter months. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

Rev. Dr. L. Rumble, M. S. C.

How well I remember being called to the deathbed of a military officer who had abandoned the Protestantism of his youth for a life of complete irreligion! In his last lingering illness from cancer of the lungs and throat, due to his having been gassed during the First World War, he had taken up the study of the Catholic religion. As a result he asked to be received into the Catholic Church. But the new realization of the things that really matter drew from him the remark, “Well, Father, I’m saving my soul, but I’ve lost my life. That life I used for myself as long as it was any good to me. But now it’s of no use any more, I’m giving God the dregs. I wish to God I had been a Catholic as a boy. Things would have been very different then.”
Surely the only sensible choice is to take up our religion and to make the most of it whilst the opportunity is ours. We are living in the midst of a serious emergency, a time of economic and social troubles both national and international. And there are those who say that these anxieties are more than enough to occupy their thoughts – that it will be time enough to think about religion when things get better. But what made the emergency? Not the things we see. Evil dispositions in the souls of men have been the main cause of all the troubles. And the problems will be there until we put our souls right – which can only be when our souls are right with God.
How to go about that, we Catholics know. The Catholic Church still lives, and is the one true Church. She is the Church of the centuries, from which the Western nations departed with anything but a blessing to themselves, and in drifting from which no individual Catholic has yet found true happiness.
Faith in his religion, attendance at Mass, reception of the Sacraments, personal prayer, efforts to live up to the command-ments of God and to the precepts of the Church – these are the things that alone can give happiness to the soul of the Catholic; and even in this life, not to speak of the next.
So we come to the end of this little book, in the writing of which I myself have been a prey to many varied sentiments in turn.
For a Catholic cannot dwell on the thought of the Catholic Church to which he belongs without pride in all that she is in herself, indignation that her enemies should utter such vile calumnies against her and seek only to do her injury, a renewed love for the high ideals she ever puts before him, shame and a sense of guilt that in his own life he should fall so far short of them, and a wistful longing for those loftier standards in practice which his better self cannot but approve.
And is there a missing Catholic who has read these pages unmoved in any or all of these ways? I do not believe it. I have mentioned the taunt: “You’re a Catholic, and you’ll never be anything else. That is true; though it is not an insult, as bitterly prejudiced people imagine, but a compli-ment. We appreciate it as such. But can one be a Catholic, and not respond to all that has been said in this little book?
Then, I would say, for the love of God, do something about it. Determine to im-prove your knowledge of your religion. Read all you can find on that subject. We all need to do that, for the teachings of our religion will not remain automatically alive in our memories. We need constant-ly to remind ourselves of them. Take up your prayers and your regular attendance at Mass. Go to see your priest, and if there are any obstacles in your way, talk them over with him. He will explain ways and means. They may be much smoother and easier than you at present imagine. And the happiness awaiting you will be beyond all the expectations with which you set out on your new program of life as a practical Catholic. ....................................the end


Requirements for Receiving Holy Communion
On January 12, 1930, the sacred Congregation of the Council, by mandate of Pope Pius XI, has issued emphatic instructions on modesty of dress to all bishops, directing them to insist on these prescriptions:

"We recall that a dress cannot be called decent which is cut deeper than two fingers breadth under the pit of the throat, which does not cover the arms at least to the elbows, and scarcely reaches a bit beyond the knee. Furthermore, dresses of transparent material are improper."

In addition, all those who wish to receive  Holy Communion at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church must:    

● be validly baptized in the Roman Catholic Church.  Anyone who was baptized after 1970 must speak with the priest before receiving Holy Communion.
● hold all teachings and have a sufficient knowledge of the Catholic Faith.  One must believe and abide by traditional Catholic moral teaching, especially regarding purity of marriage.  Anyone who has received a marriage annulment since 1968 must talk to the priest before receiving Holy Communion.
● be in state of sanctifying grace to be able to receive Communion, having made a good confession to a traditional Roman Catholic priest.
● be fasting for three hours from solid food and alcoholic beverages and one hour from liquids other than water.  Water and non alcoholic medicines may be taken at any time.  (please note) Those who are able to do so, are encouraged to fast from midnight at those times when they plan to assist at a Mass scheduled for the morning.
Anyone who adheres to the teachings of Father Leonard Feeney and Saint Benedict Center (denying the Church’s teaching concerning “baptism of desire” and “baptism of blood”), who worships at religious services conducted by any of the CMRI bishops or clergy or Thuc bishops and clergy in concert with them, must not receive Holy Communion at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church.

Ladies, as stated above, are required to wear dresses, or full skirts and blouses.  Hemlines must be long enough to touch the floor when kneeling. Necklines must be no more than two fingers-widths below the pit of the throat.  Slit skirts are not acceptable; a skirt is too tight if it needs to be slit to allow walking. Ladies are also required to wear a suitable head-covering while in church. Obviously, by the standards given by Pius XI, the wearing slacks, sleeveless dresses including “cap” sleeves(which are not sleeves at all), or low necklines are not suitably dress. Sleeves must cover the arms at least to the elbows.

Gentlemen also must wear modest and decent clothing in church and observe the prescript of Pope Pius XI as noted above.  Men must wear dress slacks and dress shirt, with sleeves which cover the arms at least to the elbows, preferably with suit coat  and tie.  If their attire is immodest or indecent, they should not enter the church.
Flip-flops, shorts, sweats and T-shirts are not acceptable attire in the church at any time. The wearing of revealing, tight-fitting and transparent garments of sheer material is forbidden in the Church.

Please do not come to receive Holy Communion at this church today if you do not meet these requirements. Rather, respect our standards and observe them.


1. The question is, what exactly does it mean, to dress modestly?
2. What does the Catholic Church say on the matter?

On January 12, 1930, the sacred Congregation of the Council, by mandate of Pope Pius XI, has issued emphatic instructions on modesty of dress to all bishops, directing them to insist on these prescriptions:
"We recall that a dress cannot be called decent which is cut deeper than two fingers breadth under the pit of the throat, which does not cover the arms at least to the elbows, and scarcely reaches a bit beyond the knee. Furthermore, dresses of transparent material are improper.

Women must be decently dressed, especially when they go to church. The parish priest may, with due prudence, refuse them entrance to the church and access to the reception of the Sacraments, [each] and every time that they come to church immodestly dressed." (General Pastoral Directive, 1915 A.D.)

"Girls and women dressed immodestly are to be debarred from Holy Communion and from acting as sponsors at the Sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation; further, if the offense be extreme, they may even be forbidden to enter the church." [Decree of the Congregation of the Council, 1930 A.D.]
