St. Patrick, Hampton/St. Mary, Ackley Weather Cancellations – Jan. 13 – Jan. 14, 2024

Message from Fr. Kevin regarding Masses at St. Patrick, Hampton and St. Mary, Ackley
All Masses will be cancelled this weekend (Jan. 13-Jan. 14)
Due to the wind and snow making country roads not safe to drive on (and some of the plows have already stopped plowing some of the country roads and wont’ have them plowed by the morning) and due to the bitter cold weather (-12 F and 36 below wind chill), thought it best to keep everyone safe and cancel Masses this weekend.
Please still do something at home to honor and keep holy the Lord’s day.  
–Either watching Mass online or TV.
–Or prayer on your own that includes at least:
 reading through the Sunday Scripture readings,
offering petitions (praying for those in need),
pray an Our Father
and conclude with a prayer of spiritual communion:
My Jesus,
I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there
and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.


Peace and prayers and stay safe and warm,
-Fr. Kevin
