For all parishioners, here is a short video to walk you through the major changes when you return to church, an opportunity that began this past Saturday at the 5:00 p.m. Mass and at our two Sunday morning services.
Remember, the obligation to attend Mass has been lifted, and we want you come back only when you feel comfortable and safe to do so. It has been a difficult time for all of us, but we know that the Lord has been with us and is helping us through this unprecedented time. I know that some are ready and desirous of returning to church, while others have concerns because of COVID-19. Please return to the celebration of Mass only if you feel comfortable. Remember that if you are elderly and/or have health issues, it might be better to stay home for a while. Our Sunday Masses will continue to be broadcast on Youtube, so that you can continue to worship with your parish family, even from home.
– Monsignor Robert E. Lawrence, Pastor
Join our Parish Music Director, Catherine Chyako, in a short video as she explains some of the changes in our Sunday worship with a special emphasis on singing in church.
VISITS – The church will be available for people to visit and pray during the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
BE PATIENT, BE FLEXIBLE as we reopen our parish church. There may be changes that have to be made as we continue in this process.
PRAY to God the Father, through Jesus, in the power of the Holy Spirit that we may be protected as we take this next step.
With God, All Things Are Possible
You matter to us.
