Mass Resumes with Limitations
We will begin to celebrate Mass again! We will have our normal Mass schedule resume. Please know that your obligation to attend Mass is still lifted and you are not required to attend. The Bishop is asking that if you are over 65 or feel sick in any way please consider staying home. If you do decide to celebrate Mass with us please note the following restrictions: you must bring and wear a mask, stay at least 6 ft away from other people, use hand sanitizer as you enter the building, no shaking hands at the sign of peace, receive Holy Communion by hand and not mouth, there will not be Precious Blood, there will be a collection basket at entrance-not a collection basket passes around, there will not be any music books or paper handed out, and finally, the ushers will seat you according to proper social distancing. Please have patience with all of us as we navigate through these times of change.Please click the link below to read Bishop Powers Letter:
An Act of Spiritual Communion
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.
Prayer for a Pandemic
May we who are merely inconvenienced. Remember those whose lives are at stake. May we who have no risk factors. Remember those most vulnerable. May we who have the luxury of working from home. Remember those who must choose between their health and making the rent. May we have the flexibility to care for our children when the schools close. Remember those who have no options. May we who have to cancel our trips. Remember those who have no place to go. May we who are losing our margin money
in the turmoil of the economic market. Remember those who have no margin at all. May we who settle in for quarantine at home. Remember those who have no home. As fear grips our country, Let us choose love. During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other, Let us find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our Neighbor. Amen
