And Now a Word From Our Pastor

UPDATE- June 20, 2020

     Praised be Jesus Christ, now and forever. Amen. In this time of pandemic, while we have celebrated a few Masses in the hall, to say "we are open" would be to exaggerate. Under very strict and restricted conditions we are able to offer a limited ministry. We are moving forward very carefully to avoid too much, too quickly, too soon. That would lead to inevitable slip ups.

     Daily Masses will continue. Weekend Masses will be offered in a truncated schedule: Saturday 5:00PM; Sunday 10:00 AM and 12:00 Noon. There will be no 8:30 AM Sunday Mass. The on-line reservation system seems to be working.

ALL MASSES WILL CONTINUE TO BE BROADCAST ON YOUTUBE.

Please keep in mind the various cautions regarding participation:

     -if you are in a "vulnerable age group" or have medical conditions, gathering with others is not recommended.

     - if you are ill with anything or have a fever, gathering with others is not permitted.

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THE OBLIGATION TO ATTEND MASS IS SUSPENDED DURING THE PANDEMIC.

     So do not get into a "guilt trip". There is no obligation to participate in Mass at this time. Thank you for your goodness, your patience and your prayers. Your safety is our primary concern.

With love and a prayer,

Fr. Dennis

We may pray this Act of Spiritual Communion when we are not able

to be physically present at Mass:

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. Amen
