ST. PATRICK'S CHURCH.
Rev. Thomas J. Brady, Pastor.
Next Sunday will in the liturgy
of the church be Passion Sunday,
and it announces to Christians the
duty of considering more seriously
the sufferings and the death of
Christ. The statues In the churches
are draped in purnls, indicating a
more solemn thought of penance.
It will also be the feast of St. Pat
rick, patronal feast of the congre
gation, and hence it has a special
appeal to Catholics in this section.
There will be but one mass on that
day, and the hour will be 9 o'clock
instead of the usual 8:30 o'clock
mass. The pastor will preach upon
the "Triumph of Faith in Christ,
Reflected in St. Patrick."
Confessions will be heard before
this mass, and Holy Communion
will be distributed before the mass.
On the Sunday following, the
church will celebrate the solemn en
try of Christ into Jerusalem, and
that Sunday is known as Palm Sun
day. Good Friday, this year, falls on
March 29th, and the pastor of this
church wishes to express his sense
of appreciation to the citizens gen
erally for their whole-hearted ac
ceptance of the pledge to close their
places of business on that day be
tween the hours of noon and three
o'clock in the afternoon. This in
dicates that a spirit of faith in
Christ ties the people of the com
munity to God. The pastor is happy
to state here that not a single indiv
idual in business in Heppner de
clined to close on Good Friday dur
ing the hours mentioned.
