Notices Regarding COVID-19 Impacts

Bishop Baker on Restoration of Public Worship

May 8th Message from Fr Tom

For those in RCIA who were scheduled to receive Sacraments at the Easter Vigil, we hope to reschedule for Pentecost Sunday (May 31st).  We'll be in touch with information as we have it.

Youth Confirmation is postponed until sometime after Bishop Raica is installed, and will probably be in the new Religious Education year.

First Communion is postponed until further notice.

Keep all those affected by COVID-19 in your prayers.  Remember, we are in God's loving hands.

From Fr Tom: 

You are all being remembered in a special way daily in the Masses (said privately) and my prayers. All the intentioned Masses, both weekend and day, are invariably celebrated. Please continue to keep everyone in your prayers and stay spiritually connected (spiritual communion prayer) without fail, hoping for a speedy return to our community worship.
