Because of the severity of the world pandemic caused by the COVID-19 virus, we are now restricted from the celebration of Mass for the general public, as we are prohibited from gathering in a group of more than 10. All parish events are now cancelled as well. The following is a list of the events that will not take place.
Daily and Weekend Masses - Stations of the Cross - Day Long Adoration -Lenten Study Groups - Family Faith Formation (Both campuses) - Social Get-togethers (Fish Fry) - Alcoholics Anonymous - Cornerstone Retreat and All Parish Group Meetings.
The Mass is available on television. Masses that are televised (EWTN, Boston Catholic Television, etc.), live-streamed by computer watchthemass.com or broadcast by radio, are specifically designed to be available for people who are home bound. Mass-online.org offers Masses celebrated online from around the globe. St. Joseph Cathedral is live-streaming weekend Masses on Facebook.
It is encouraged that we make use of any of these broadcasts of Mass during this time when we are unable to attend. In addition to making a prayer of Spiritual Communion, offer thanksgiving after Mass by praying the Rosary.
I, as well as Deacon Mike, and Deacon Candidate Dave Hemeon are available if you need someone to talk to or to pray with. Please call the office at 536-4700. I am also available for the Sacrament of the Sick.
A word about stewardship. The parish needs your continued support to be able to meet regular financial obligations. If at all possible, please continue to give. If you would like to try online giving, please click the "Online Giving" button at the top of this page or call Sandy at 536-4700 between the hours of 9 AM and noon, Monday through Friday.
We have had parishioners come forward that are willing to help with grocery shopping and other chores. Please call Sandy at the office if you are in need of that help.
If you are registered in the parish and we have your email address, a copy of the Bulletin will be emailed to you weekly. Please read it for important information. The Bulletin will be published on this site as well.
Together let us continue to pray for each other, for our nation and the world for healing, for peace and an end to this pandemic.
