A Letter from Our Pastor

Monday, March 30, 2020

As things become even more fluid, it is time to update:

 - We will NOT be celebrating Mass in the Church during Holy Week.  Our online schedule will be as follows:

Palm Sunday Mass will be available beginning at 4 pm this Saturday through Holy Thursday at 6 pm.

Holy Thursday Mass will be available beginning at 7 pm until Midnight.

Good Friday Passion will be available beginning at Noon until Midnight.

Easter Vigil will be available beginning at 7 pm until Midnight.

Easter Sunday Mass will be available beginning at 8 am through Friday, April 17.

- A directive was sent from the Diocese letting us know that we are NOT able to distribute Blessed Palms this Sunday.  I will bless them at our Palm Sunday Mass and retain them until a later date.  Thank you to all those who agreed to deliver palms to the homebound.  You will be contacted when we will be able to bring this great service to those in need.  

- Following the President's comments, it looks like Masses will be congregation-less through the end of April.

- There is a new addition to the website - 5 Minutes with Fr. Len.  About 10 am, Monday through Friday, you can view a little inspiration and humor directly from my office

- If you know of anyone that is in need of any assistance at this time, such as food shopping or prescription pickups, please let me know.  There are a number of parishioners that have volunteered their time to make this happen.

Once again, please know that you are in the prayers of our clergy and staff.  

Stay healthy and at peace.

Fr. Len
