From Father Gregory:
All non-essential meetings at the church are cancelled.
Our church is open during Monday-Thursday 9-2 and on Sunday morning from 9:00 until noon, for private prayer before the Blessed Sacrament which is in the tabernacle on our main altar. Face coverings are encouraged for private prayer. The daily Mass chapel, however, is closed until further notice. Please understand that, per the instructions of the Bishop, no more than 10 people can be in our church at one time.
Let us pray for healing for those who have contracted the coronavirus, for protection for caregivers, and for an end to this pandemic. As God’s sons and daughters, we draw close to the Lord and remember Jesus’ constant refrain in the Gospels, “Do not be afraid”. Fear is the Devil’s greatest tool; but as our holy patroness Saint Therese teaches us, we who believe trust in God’s goodness.
Peace in Jesus our Savior,
Parish Communication in the time of Social Distancing
Over the past weeks Kerry Fallon and Fr. Gregory have tried to phone every parish family. We want you to know that we miss you and you are all in our prayers. Many have asked Kerry to pass on prayer requests, and if they were for specific loved ones, Father Gregory has included them in the Prayers of the Faithful at Mass. If you did not receive a message or speak to Kerry Fallon or Fr. Gregory directly, chances are your phone number is incorrect in our registry. Please call the office to update your contact information. If you have specific prayer requests for yourself or your loved ones, call the office and we will include your prayers in our hearts and intentions.
