WE ARE BACK TO OUR REGULAR MASS SCHEDULE Saturday at 4:00 PM Sunday at 8:00, 9:30, and 11:00 AM Monday to Friday at 8:00 AM
There is no obligation to attend Mass. The Dispensation from the Sunday Mass Obligation has been extended through TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2021 by the Archbishop.
Our Sunday Mass is recorded on YouTube each week. Our weekly Bulletin can be found under the “Bulletins” tab on this page.
CHURCH COVID GUIDELINES: Thank you to all who are following the virus guidelines for return to church. With the virus surging in many states, we cannot grow complacent in protecting the safety of all. Concerns have been voiced about some who are not properly wearing facemasks or over-crowding pews already occupied by a family. I ask that all attending Mass be attentive to the guidelines about facemasks and social distancing between family groups. There are enough empty pews for each family group to have their own pew. Thank you for your attention to these matters.
COMMUNION AT HOME Fr. Jette is making home visits with Holy Communion. If you want to receive Communion at your home, please call the Rectory to arrange for a visit.
FAIR TRADE ITEMS Fair Trade items may be ordered by calling the rectory office or emailing Elizabeth Grigoriou at firstname.lastname@example.org. Items available include: coffee, tea, chocolate, almonds, cashews, olive oil, baking cocoa, chocolate chips and hot cocoa. Prices and specific item flavors are listed on a flier on the table in the front lobby. We are happy to have the items left outside of the Rectory for pick up, to comply with social distancing!
Advent, the four week season before Christmas, comes at a dark time of the year. The days are short and the darkness settles in early. To bring light, we see many lights around us on homes and trees and town greens. But this year we need more than the usual lights of the season. Covid 19 has brought more darkness and we need light from above. God sent His Son to us at this dark time of the year. May Jesus, the Light of the World, walk with us to strengthen our faith that God is with us and inspire us to reflect His light. Our service to others can dispel the Covid darkness with God’s light. It is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness.
