IMPORTANT PLEASE READ AND SHARE—
Good evening faithful parishioners,
Information on COVID19 changes so suddenly and seems to change even hourly. Due to the continued spread and prevention of this virus, it is with a heavy heart that I must inform you: The Bishop has issued a MANDATORY decree that all parish masses and activities are suspended INDEFINITELY. This means there are to be NO LITURGIES that have physical attendance until further notice. This will affect our upcoming liturgies for Palm Sunday and during Holy Week. Because of this, we also will no longer have stations of the cross, the agape meal, the altar of repose, Good Friday veneration of the cross, and even the RCIA Sacraments will have to be postponed. The Bishop was very adamant that there should not be any communion services, homebound EM, or any other activity going on until further notice. This means the parish office will also remain closed to the public and function solely when absolutely necessary.
Father Joel also asks that NO person enter the parish without contacting the office first - this is so we can keep any contact with knobs/doors/other surfaces limited and the church can remain safe from the virus as well. I will be checking the alarm log weekly to ensure it is safe for our priests to enter the building when they need for emergencies or personal Masses.
We are encouraged to continue out our Lenten journey while tuning in to Channel 49, EWTN, online Masses and rosaries, stations and chapters - as we approach Easter. This is an unusual time in the life of the Church but with prayer and trust, God will guide His people just like He always has.
Please pray for Father Joel, Father Roger and all clergy in our Diocese. This is hard for us but this is even harder for those who gave their life to bring Jesus to the people - and now they are not able to in the best of their ability.
God will provide.
If you have concerns or questions, please email [email protected] - I will get back to you with direction and answers.
We wish Father Roger a blessed and holy 60th Anniversary of his Ordination! We celebrate this jubilee in prayer and love! Congratulations!
