From Bishop Medley and Fr. Anthoni (3/24/2020)

Celebration of public masses and public gatherings are suspended until further notice.  

We will have Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament on Sunday, March 29th from 8-9 am for individual prayer, Stations or the Rosary (maintaining appropriate social distancing.)

The celebrations of Holy Week and Easter cannot be transferred to another date.  They may be celebrated by Fr. Anthoni withhout a congregation.  We will provide a list of masses that will be livestreamed closer to Holy Week. 

The rite of Christian initiation can be celebrated outside the usual times, thus it will be delayed until the Sunday Eucharist is resumed.  

Our church bells will ring daily at 10 am such that we can pause and offer our prayer for an end to the coronavirus pandemic.
