The Shrine will offer a Mass on the Feast of the Archangels, September 29 at 6 PM. This will be a healing Mass which includes the Anointing of the Sick.
The sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is offered primarily for the elderly and for those suffering a serious illness. However, anyone who feels they need healing is welcome. It is recommended that any person receiving this sacrament, first receive the sacrament of Reconciliation. We have added the opportunity for Reconciliation before the Mass. Father Paul will hear Confessions from 4:30 - 5:30 PM.
All are welcome to attend the Mass, which will be celebrated by Franciscan Fr. Paul Schneider, OFM Conv. The Franciscan postulants will be serving at the Mass.

MISSIONARY SISTERS AT THE SHRINE
IN HER WORDS
A LOOK AT ONE SISTER'S MISSION

This was the message regarding the Thursday livestream:
(Meet the team behind the film "CABRINI" tonight (Thursday, August 3) at 6 PM. The film, scheduled to be released in March, 2024, is produced by Angel Studios, the same group behind "The Chosen" and "Sound of Freedom".
The message from Angel Studios: "Join us for a special livestream on Thursday, August 3 at 6 pm, CT, as Neal Harmon, CEO of Angel Studios, hosts a discussion with the talented minds behind the upcoming film Cabrini. We'll introduce Alejandro Monteverde, the visionary director of Cabrini and Sound of Freedom, and Eustace Wolfington, the executive producer of Cabrini. During the livestream, we'll delve into the heart of Cabrini's creation, exploring the passion and inspiration that drove Alejandro and Eustace to bring this powerful story to life. Cabrini chronicles the extraordinary tale of this remarkable woman, who faced and conquered not only the challenges of a male-dominated society but also the brutal anti-Italian prejudices that prevailed in 19th-century New York. Through her unwavering willpower, courage, and exceptional business acumen, she shattered barriers and left a mark on history.")
MSC SISTERS FIGHT AGAINST TRAFFICKING
30 July 2023
World Day Against Trafficking In Persons
Through Cabrini Action and Advocacy Coalition (CAAC), and Non-Governmental Organizations like UNANIMA (“UN” = United Nations, and “ANIMA” = Latin word for feminine “spirit” or “life principle.”), Religious Congregations Stop Trafficking of Persons, etc., our Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus are raising awareness and fighting against human trafficking, a crime that targets vulnerable individuals.
Since 2013, July 30 has been World Day Against Trafficking in Persons. It raises awareness about the recruitment, transportation, and exploitation of human beings for financial gain. It's a global problem that affects everyone.
Angel Studios has released a faith-based film, "The Sound of Freedom," now in movie theaters. The movie highlights the importance of ending human trafficking and stars Jim Caviezel, Mira Sorvino, and Bill Camp. Alejandro Monteverde is the director and co-writer of the film. Interestingly, Mr. Monteverde is also the director of the upcoming movie "Cabrini", which has a teaser available at https://youtu.be/uuFkt3w-7kI.
We’re excited to say that there is a clip of the “Cabrini” movie that is previewed prior to the film Sound of Freedom.
Audience reception for “The Sound of Freedom” has been highly positive. If you want to know more about it, please click on https://youtu.be/FiZgs7dyBZg.
