- Christ is Risen!Alleluia! Alleluia! Happy Easter!Dear Parish Family,As we gather to celebrate the Eucharist this weekend we hear the message of Jesus, “This I command you: Love one another”.We offer our prayers in thanksgiving to our Blessed Mother, for our own mothers who gave us the gift of life and love, and for the gift of the Eucharist which sustains us to eternal life.On Mother’s Day we can’t help but smile as we think of moms, stepmoms, grandmothers, mothers-in-law, godmothers, and all who share motherly love. It might also bring a tear or two as we recall the memories of dear mothers who are no longer with us, or those we have not seen in many months or even years. Wherever we are this Mother’s Day, we can be comforted and uplifted by the thought of the one beautiful Mother, standing by the Cross of her Son, accepting her role as mother of us all. How can we best honor our moms? By listening to the words of our heavenly Mother, who tells us, “Do whatever he tells you.” (John 2:5)May, is a month dedicated in a special way to the Mother of Our Lord, and the Mother of us all, the Blessed Virgin Mary.Our First Communion children will join in procession to crown the Blessed Virgin Mary statue during the 9:00am Mass. Please join us at the Mass of your choice this weekend as we bless and celebrate all mothers.The loveliest masterpiece of the heart of God is the love of a mother. – St. Thérèse of LisieuxGod Bless,Fr. Cyrus

How to be HOLY in an UNHOLY World! From Guest Speaker Bryan Mercier
An Act of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love you above all things.
And I desire to receive you into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, come at least
spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.
Update on Weekend Mass Sign-Ups and Safety Guidelines
Dear Parish Family,
I would like to thank you for your patience over the past several weeks (months), we have safely and efficiently welcomed you to Mass. We have adhered to the health guidelines of the state and diocese. There were many people who spent hours with me in organizing and planning to make sure that we are in compliance to the guidelines. Thank you to those individuals. Now that our capacity successfully expanded with the guidance from CDC, state and local officials and the Bishop’s office, we will eliminate the need to pre-register for Mass effective the weekend of April 24/25. However, this is an experiment and if the need arises, we may return to a modified sign-up system.
Please read careful the following guidelines in order to ensure the safety and fitting environment for our worship.
1. Please make sure that when you enter and exit the church and before receiving communion to sanitize your hands. Hand sanitizers are available throughout the church.
2. Attendance is on a first come first served basis. If the number of worshippers approaches a limit that compromises safe distancing, we will ask that you use the McGrath Hall or attend Mass at a later time. Please be advised that the church is sanitized after all Masses.
3. Face mask or face coverings is required at all times regardless of vaccination status. Please be sure to cover both your nose and mouth.
4. Social distancing must be observed at all times. Please follow the markings on the pews.
5. Please do not attend Mass if you are not feeling well or required to be quarantined.
Please note that the Mass times will be back to its original schedule on the first weekend of June (June 5/6). The mass times are;
Saturday: 5:00 pm
Sunday: 7:30 am, 9:00 am, 10:30 am, 12:00 pm, 5:00 pm
May our Blessed Mother Mary, assumed into heaven intercede and hear of prayers.
In Christ Jesus our Lord,
