#iGiveCatholic

 Seven Dolors is participating in #iGiveCatholic!  All funds raised will go towards the Religious Education and CYO programs at Seven Dolors which will help to purchase resources, fund training, and create a welcome space for our youth. Early giving began Monday, November 12 and runs through Giving Tuesday on November 27. 

MATCHING GIFT:  Generous donors from our diocese have created a $50,000 match pool for the diocese. Because of this, every gift to Seven Dolors via #iGive Catholic, up to $1000 per donor, will be matched $1 for $1, until the funds are used. Your gift will be doubled as long as there is money in the pool.

Element Highlight

It is time again for another Element Highlight. This week’s selection is what is known as the Ambry.

In Roman Catholic usage, when commonly called an ambry, it is traditionally in the sanctuary (as in, the altar area) of a church or in the Baptistery, and is used to store the oils used in sacraments: Oil of Catechumens (indicated by the Latin letters O.C.), Oil of the Sick (O.I.), and Sacred Chrism (S.C.). Before the Second Vatican Council, regulations required it to be secured and locked, and lined and veiled with either purple cloth (in reference to the Oil of the Sick) or white (for the Sacred Chrism). The door was usually marked "O.S." or Olea Sancta (Holy Oils), to indicate the contents. Such regulations are now relaxed so that while many churches continue to use such an ambry, the oils are also stored and in some cases displayed in other ways. The locked Ambry in our newly renovated church is located at the back of the church, by the confessional, and closer to the baptismal font.

Thanks to a member of the BHS Construction crew who donated his personal time & materials, we now have this wonderful new Ambry.

A NEW RCIA

 

At Seven Dolors, we have a year-round RCIA process, which means you may contact us at any time you are called to join us in your journey of faith. We ask that you make an initial meeting with the RCIA Director to discuss the process and what it would look like for you personally. The process is an experience of community including weekly sessions on Sunday mornings and various liturgical experiences. Each weekly session includes prayer, formal instruction, small group discussion, and a time fellowship. For further Information, contact Rosie at the Parish Office  785-565-5000.
