Here is a link to the bulletin for the Mass
Here are some words Michael Trolly our organist and cantor shared about  Henry J. Stauffenberg, PhD (1947-2020) on our Facebook page.
We are saddened to announce that longtime Annunciation parishioner Dr. Henry J. Stauffenberg, PhD, passed away at his home on Thursday, April 16. A native of Pennsylvania, Dr. Henry first moved to Ottawa in 1971 to begin his doctoral studies in English literature at the University of Ottawa. He joined the English Department at the University of Scranton in 1973, and received his PhD from the University of Ottawa in 1978, with a thesis on the topic of the Middle English poem “Cursor Mundi”; he later edited a section of the work for publication by the University of Ottawa Press in 1985. Between 1987 and 1997 he taught various courses at the Ottawa Lay School of Theology, now known as the Ottawa School of Theology and Spirituality. For a number of years he served as an Examining Chaplain for the Anglican Catholic Church of Canada; he was himself ordained Deacon in 2000, serving at Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary in addition to his duties for the church across the country. In 2012, Annunciation was received into Full Communion with the Catholic Church, and Dr. Henry was reconciled with the Church in which he had been raised.A Requiem Mass will be celebrated for the repose of Dr. Henry’s soul on Saturday, May 2, at 10 AM EDT, and will be broadcast live on Facebook, due to current emergency measures.

Reconsecrate Our Nation to Our Lady Image

The Catholic bishops of both the United States and Canada will be re-consecrating their nations  today May 1 to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in a plea for the Holy Mother’s protection during the pandemic.

Here’s a notice from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

As the world continues to face the ongoing effects of the global pandemic of the coronavirus, Archbishop José H. Gomez of Los Angeles and president of the USCCB has announced that the U.S. bishops will join the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops on May 1 in renewing the consecrations of the two nations to the care of our Blessed Mother.

Maundy Thursday

What makes this night different from all other nights? That’s the ritual question with which every Passover supper for the last three millennia has begun. From the Passover celebrated today, and the Passover celebrated at Jesus’s own last supper with his disciples. The youngest asks it of the oldest. And so, we imagine in the tradition that it fell to John the Apostle to ask the question of Peter. What makes this night different from all other nights? It’s a retelling, a ritual retelling of the most important event in the entire history of Israel, woven through the entire history of God’s people. This is the night in which God saved and redeem His people and delivered them from slavery in Egypt. It is, therefore, their foundational experience, and it tells them everything they need to know about who God is, about who they are in God, and therefore their relationship with the world. It all comes down to that night, and the experience of the God who led them out from slavery to freedom.

But in leading them out, that relationship God forged on that night had to be formed, and reformed, again and again. How quickly his people forgot. How quickly they went astray. They had to be, in many ways, stripped down and rebuilt by the Lord Himself. When we read the accounts of Exodus over these three sacred days, this is what we come back to, again and again: That being stripped down to the foundations of faith, and allowing the Lord to rebuild our own faith, is essential in order to live the new and eternal relationship with the Father. Because in Exodus, they had to come to rely on God’s power, not their own. They were utterly powerless and forsaken. In the great revelation of God that they would experience on Mount Sinai, they had to come and embrace His law, not their own, His holiness, certainly not their own.
