  • Mass Information | Ss Peter & Paul

    Mass Information Holy Mass - The Heart and the Life of the Church "The Sunday celebration of the Eucharist is at the heart of the Church’s life (cf. Catechism of the Catholic Church, n. 2177). We Christians go to Sunday Mass to encounter the Risen Lord, or better still to allow ourselves to be encountered by him, to hear his Word, to nourish ourselves at his table, and thus to become the Church, that is, his mystical living Body in the world." Pope Francis My Morning Retreat ​ Does your schedule give you time for prayer and worship in the morning? Prayer and worship are an indispensable source of grace we should never neglect. If you are home on a weekday morning, take the opportunity to slip away from the routine of life and step into the Lord’s house for connection with the source of our life. ​ Weekday mass is a quiet moment to gather with the faithful who are seeking to be with Jesus to find strength, healing, peace. It lacks the bustle of the larger crowds on Sunday with little or no music. It is a time for special closeness with Jesus. ​ Ss. Peter and Paul shares priests with St. Thomas the Apostle nearby in Corcoran. At Ss. Peter and Paul, mass is offered on Tuesdays at 8:00AM, and on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8:30AM. St. Thomas has weekday mass on Fridays and Saturdays at 8:30AM. All weekday masses are preceded by confession. ​ Weekday morning mass… it’s like a cool summer morning on the deck with a cup of coffee listening to the birds sing... only better! ​ ​ Weekend Masses Saturday (Vigil)...4:00 PM Sunday..............9:00 AM ​ ​ ​ Weekday Masses ​Tuesday.............8:00 AM Wednesday.......8:30 AM Thursday...........8:30 AM MassReadings Mass Readings FIFTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME Read Sunday, February 5, 2023 ​ Read Tuesday, February 7, 2023 ​ Read Thursday, February 9, 2023 ​ Read Saturday, February 11, 2023 Saint Paul Miki and Companions, Martyrs Read Monday, February 6, 2023 ​ Read Wednesday, February 8, 2023 Saint Scholastica, Virgin Read Friday, February 10, 2023 SIXTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME Read Sunday, February 12, 2023 Today's Mass Readings Guidelines for Receiving Holy Communion in a Catholic Church For Catholics As Catholics, we fully participate in the celebration of the Eucharist when we receive Holy Communion. We are encouraged to receive Communion devoutly and frequently. In order to be properly disposed to receive Communion, participants should not be conscious of grave sin and normally should have fasted for one hour. A person who is conscious of grave sin is not to receive the Body and Blood of the Lord without prior sacramental confession except for a grave reason where there is no opportunity for confession. In this case, the person is to be mindful of the obligation to make an act of perfect contrition, including the intention of confessing as soon as possible (canon 916). A frequent reception of the Sacrament of Penance is encouraged for all. For our fellow Christians We welcome our fellow Christians to this celebration of the Eucharist as our brothers and sisters. We pray that our common baptism and the action of the Holy Spirit in this Eucharist will draw us closer to one another and begin to dispel the sad divisions which separate us. We pray that these will lessen and finally disappear, in keeping with Christ's prayer for us "that they may all be one" (Jn 17:21). Because Catholics believe that the celebration of the Eucharist is a sign of the reality of the oneness of faith, life, and worship, members of those churches with whom we are not yet fully united are ordinarily not admitted to Holy Communion. Eucharistic sharing in exceptional circumstances by other Christians requires permission according to the directives of the diocesan bishop and the provisions of canon law (canon 844 §4). Members of the Orthodox Churches, the Assyrian Church of the East, and the Polish National Catholic Church are urged to respect the discipline of their own Churches. According to Roman Catholic discipline, the Code of Canon Law does not object to the reception of Communion by Christians of these Churches (canon 844 §3). For those not receiving Holy Communion All who are not receiving Holy Communion are encouraged to express in their hearts a prayerful desire for unity with the Lord Jesus and with one another. For non-Christians We also welcome to this celebration those who do not share our faith in Jesus Christ. While we cannot admit them to Holy Communion, we ask them to offer their prayers for the peace and the unity of the human family. © 1996, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops

  • Eucharistic Adoration | Ss Peter & Paul

    Eucharistic Adoration Our Lady of Loretto Adoration Chapel Before beginning Area Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration, our ministry was consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and She continues to help us on our journey. ​ Our Lady of Loretto Adoration Chapel is hosted by the Church of Ss. Peter & Paul in conjunction with the churches of St. Thomas the Apostle in Corcoran, St. Anne’s in Hamel, and other surrounding parishes. ​ Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration takes place in Our Lady of Loretto Adoration Chapel, located in the old convent at Ss. Peter and Paul, Loretto, MN. Adorer Responsibilities For our Lord to be exposed perpetually in the Blessed Sacrament, the chapel must have at least one person present with Him at all times. While our purpose is to adore Him, each adorer also plays the role of guardian. With our strong substitute system, occasional absences are not a problem, and snowbirds are able to fly south for the winter. Contact Information ​ If you would like to be a regular adorer or a substitute, click here for more information or to volunteer. ​ Our Lord says, come to me for I am gentle and lowly of heart, and I will give you rest. ​ Is life overwhelming? Why me, why now? Are you feeling lonely? ​ Are you feeling a need for healing in your heart from a hurt of long ago or just recently? ​ Do you just want to know if God is out there, and if so, does he really care about me? Life brings lots of questions and sometimes reading books and listening to podcasts just doesn’t bring the answers we feel the need for. Sometimes an in-person meeting is much more effective than one from a distance through various media. Sometimes we just need to come in and sit down with the Lord. That is one of the great gifts of Eucharistic Adoration. There He is, His heart the Eucharist in the monstrance, as if at His desk, waiting for anyone who needs to, to come in and see Him. ​ In the silence of an adoration chapel, or when there is adoration in your parish church, that is the time and place for a private appointment with Jesus Christ. Come and see. Come and pour out your heart to Him. Come and listen. Quietly share space together as we do with so many others in our life, but this time with God. Adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament, a gift beyond all telling. He’s waiting there just for you! Come and see. “The Church and the world have a great need for Eucharistic adoration. Jesus waits for us in this sacrament of love. Let us be generous with our time in going to meet Him in adoration, and in contemplation that is full of faith and ready to make reparation for the great faults and crimes of the world. May our adoration never cease.” ~ Saint John Paul II

  • First Saturday Devotion

    First Saturday Devotion The 5 First Saturdays devotion was requested by our Blessed Mother at Fatima to make reparation for the blasphemies committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The Blessed Virgin Mary told Sr. Lucia at Fatima, "I promise to assist at the hour of death, with the graces necessary for salvation, all those who, on the first Saturday of five consecutive months, shall confess, receive Holy Communion, recite five decades of the Rosary, and keep me company for fifteen minutes while meditating on the fifteen mysteries of the Rosary, with the intention of making reparation to me. " The First Saturday Devotions for our Parish Cluster are held at St. Thomas the Apostle in Corcoran on the first Saturday of each month. Confessions are offered from 7:30-8:15am, and the Rosary begins at 7:50am, followed by Mass at 8:30am. Devotions & Prayer Ministries
