STATUS UPDATES From the Bishop
Update March 17, 2020
Upon further prayer and reflection, Bishop Baldacchino has revised the suspension of funeral masses. Funerals will be celebrated in a private manner with only the immediate family present (less than 10 people).
Update March 16, 2020
With the foremost concern for our Parish community and recognizing the importance of social distancing in containing the spread of COVID-19, Bishop Baldacchino has made the difficult but necessary decision to temporarily suspend the public celebration of Mass including weddings and funerals. In addition, all parish events such as baptism and marriage preparation classes, group meetings, etc. are suspended.
The Pastoral Center is currently transitioning to a limited-service operation. During this period, the Pastoral Center will operate with minimal staff on-site and some employees working remotely. Although the Pastoral Center doors will be locked, personnel will be accessible by phone and email. This will allow for social distancing while minimizing foot traffic throughout the building.
During this time the faithful are encouraged to pray individually or as a family, with the Liturgy of the Hours, reading scripture, reciting the Rosary, and with other means. Spiritual resources, including a Family Home Celebration During Suspension of Mass, are posted on the diocesan homepage.
Let us begin this season of penance together in:
PRAYER—Holy God, may our fasting be a hunger for justice, our alms an offering of peace, and our prayers a reflection of humble and grateful hearts. Amen.
FASTING—What you give up during Lent changes lives. What will you fast from
during these 40 days?
ALMS GIVING—Make an offering to support our brothers and sisters in need around the world.
Through CRS Rice Bowl, we journey with members of our human family around the world, and commit our Lenten prayers, fasting and alms giving to deepening our faith and serving those in need.
Please take home a “Rice Bowl box” and bring it back with your donation anytime during lent.
