Archbishop Carlson has communicated to us that we may resume public Masses on Monday, May 18. He will provide guidelines directing how can best open while being safe and respectful of the ongoing concerns regarding the presence of the coronavirus in our community. I will likewise post, probably on Tuesday, May 12, our guidelines regarding how to attend Mass the following week.
The good news is that we will be able to celebrate together. It will not be the same; and I believe we are learning it will never be the same. What is the same is God’s love for us. What is the same is God’s presence to us and within us. What is the same is God’s promise to us. The Holy Spirit will be sent upon each one of us and we will search together for the ways God is calling us to reveal his glory through our love for one another.
We will continue our Friday Eucharistic Processions for healing and peace in our community, every Friday at 6:00 pm.. This evening we will travel west on Delor, north on Ridgewood, east on Taft and south on Newport back to the Grotto.
Please also note that roses will be available on the sidewalk in front of church this Sunday from 9-11:30 AM. Please come by!
You are in my daily prayer. Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.
