Let me take this time to share with you how it saddens me I am not able to share the Sacraments with you. The cancellation of public Masses has been most challenging for all of us. I encourage you to join in spiritual communion through the streamed masses. There are helpful websites and information listed below.
To those stricken with coronavirus, out of work due to the virus, and to all those who are affected by this virus please know you are in our prayers. I would like to thank all those who are putting their own lives at risk to help others. Stay safe, stay well, and stay home if possible.
Please know how very grateful we are to keep receiving your offertory, whether by online giving through our parish website or by your envelopes that can be mailed to our parish office. I understand this is a difficult time financially for many people and your first obligation is to care for your family.
Please reach out (in a safe way) to your fellow parishioners (by computer or by phone). Now you know why you have (I hope) your parish Directories (photos & phone numbers)! I am worried about how many parishioners feel left alone because we cannot reach them. Not just the seniors, but also the “computer-less-savvy” (like me). I met a parishioner last week and they admitted never using the website???
The parish office remains CLOSED. If you need to reach us you can leave a message at the office, as we are still monitoring the phones 24/7, or you can email us [email protected]. We will get back to you as soon as possible.
Please say a prayer for the repose of Father Hilary John Rodgers, our first Diocesan Priest to die of the virus on April 1st. Fr. Rodgers was ordained with our Fr. John and Fr. Bill Cocco back in 2004. Also, please keep Fr. Lawler in your prayers!
Until next time, God’s Blessings,
Fr. Jennings, Pastor
