We will now be having WEEKDAY Masses on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8:00 am in the Church. Masses will not be held in the Church basement until further notice.
WEEKEND Mass will begin with Sunday, May 31st at 8:00 am. Mass dates and times could be adjusted according to the changing information, so please watch for changes! At this time, we will not have a Saturday evening Mass. Please observe and follow the extra measures that are being taken to keep everyone safe upon entering and exiting the Church. The Bishop reminds you that you are still dispensed from attending Masses! You need to feel comfortable going out into the public! If you feel better staying home, please do so!
Letters or an email went out to ushers and lectors. There will not be any Mass Servers or Eucharistic Extraordinary Ministers until further notice. If you are unable to serve at your scheduled time, please find a replacement!
The Bishop has requested each parish to implement safety precautions and they must be approved by the Bishop before we can have public Masses again. The list has been submitted to the Bishop after discussion at the Parish Council meeting on May 11th. Here is a list of some things you may see:
* Pews will be marked where you can sit in family groups. Ushers will seat you.
* There will be hand sanitizer you will be asked to use before & after Mass
* There will be no missellettes for the time being
* There will be no Mass Servers or Extraordinary Ministers
* Ushers will tell you when to go to communion or leave the Church
* The Church will be sanitized after Mass
* Weekday Masses will still be held in the basement
* We ask that you practice social distancing when entering, leaving, and during communion procession
* We ask that you not gather at the back of Church after Mass
UPDATE: The palms will be blessed, along with the Easter Candle during the Mass on Sunday, May 31st at 8:00 am. At this point, the palms appear to be green enough to braid. If you can not pick up a palm at Mass on Sunday, the rest will be made into crosses and available at the back of Church.
Dave & Brook made a video of them praying the Stations of the Cross. Please click on the link to pray along with them!
All events, including First Communion, Confirmation and the Parish Dinner will be rescheduled at a later date. Please watch for updates!
A GREAT time was had by all! Plans are in the works to do this again next September! Thank you to the Catholic United Parish Volunteer Team for hosting this event. It was very successful! Here are just a few of the many pictures that were taken at the event:
