Dear Parish Family,
We are now preparing for our outdoor Masses. As you all know, our Bishop, in consultation with the State health officials has given us permission to begin offering public Masses. There will be limitations of how many people will be able to attend. I ask you to please be patient with us as we begin Phase 1. We are praying that we fully go back to worship our Lord inside our beautiful church.

Frequently Asked Questions
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.

Status of “We’re Reaching Out to all Parishioners”
Fr. Cyrus Deacon Bill
Several weeks ago, a pastoral decision was made by Fr. Cyrus and Dn. Bill to attempt to reach out to all parishioners as the State-mandated pandemic lockdown has continued. To date, as of mid-May, our clergy has called close to 300 families with positive results. The intention of these calls is to make sure our parishioners are safe, well and to let them know they are being prayed for.
This social connection project has revealed interesting comments. Many of our parishioners said they were safe and thankful for the call. They expressed how they are grateful that God is “keeping them safe.” They all spoke of missing Mass and the sacraments but for the most part, “attending Mass” by viewing our parish live-streaming Masses or watching other TV Masses on EWTN or from other sources. Parishioners expressed their hope that someday, our church will be fully open soon but understand the several partial opening phases of worship would be a very good start.
