MASS SCHEDULE – WEEK OF THE EPIPHANY V (February 9, 2014)
10, St. Scholastica 316 A.D.
11, St. Cyril of Alexandria 444 A.D. (Transferred)
14, St. Valentine, Martyr 270 A.D.
+ The Holy Communion is celebrated Monday – Saturday at 12:15.
+ St. Valentine was martyred before 312 and he is commemorated on the 14th of February. He was probably martyred on that date, but nothing else is known of him. Historically there may have been two Valentines, one a priest of Rome, and the other a bishop of Ternia – both are commemorated on 14 February. It is most likely that there was only one and he served in both orders at different times in his life. In many parts of Europe, it was once said that birds began to pair off for the nesting season in mid-February. Traditionally Christians frequently spoke of a given calendar day not by citing the date, but by naming the day after saint whose feast was celebrated on that date thus we find early Christians saying that birds choose their mates on St. Valentine’s day.

A Mass card is a greeting card given to someone to inform him or her that a deceased loved one or friend was remembered and prayed for at a weekly Mass. It is a specifically Christian way to express one’s love. Call Julie McDermott at the Church office (434-979-2842) and she will help you fill out the form. The celebrant will sign the card and we will mail it from the Church to the family of the loved one.
