A WARM WELCOME
A warm welcome to Ernie Harker, our new Supervisor of Facilities and Maintenance. Ernie will be a great addition to our parish staff. SPECIAL THANKS! to Scott Myers as he leaves his position. Scott did a wonderful job in his time working at the parish.
As we celebrate Mass again in the parish, please be reminded that we practice social distancing in the church and that many pews are roped off so as to limit seating capacity. We now have seating for about 125, but the average attendance at a weekend Mass is about 60. Masks are worn in the building and hand sanitizer is amply available. You are encouraged to return to Mass as you are able. As Bishop Powers has reinstated the obligation for Mass attendance you are encouraged to come to a weekend liturgy. Should you be unable to come to a weekend liturgy, please consider attending a daily Mass – the schedule is in the bulletin. Attendance at daily Mass is 10-15 people.

“Rivers do not drink their own water; trees do not eat their own fruit; the sun does not shine on itself and flowers do not spread their fragrance for themselves. Living for others is a rule of nature. We are all born to help each other. No matter how difficult it is…life is good when you are happy; but much better when others are happy because of you.” Pope Francis
