  • From Pastor's Desk

    Dear parish family,

    I know that all of us are eager to resume our usual schedule of Masses, and to receive the sacraments on a regular basis. We see the overwhelming connection our parishioners have to their parish, and that the priests have to their parishioners. It is evident we have been very strong in surviving this disruption.
     
    Even though we haven’t a definite date for resuming, the Archdiocese has given us some ideas as to how we are to proceed.  The Archdiocese has implemented a 5 phase instruction as to how we proceed.  All phases require social distancing and wearing masks.  Anyone coming into the church MUST wear a mask. Remember we do this to protect others so if we are coming to church we above all must be looking to protect one another. In the pews there will be no missalettes or hymnals. This means we have to pay even closer attention to listening to the readings and the repertoire of hymns may be reduced to some familiar favorites. 
     
    As you come for Communion, you will have to keep a six feet social distance. The Communion ministers will be wearing masks.  Holy Communion will only be received in the hand.
     
    At the end of Mass the priest will not be able to greet you at the back of the church. You will be asked to leave through the exit door and not congregate anywhere in the church.
     
    When I get a definitive word on plans and a date to reopen I will share that with you. We will all need to adjust to remain healthy and protect the health of others.  Remember to keep our parish family in your prayers each day and we will get through this together.
     
    Sincerely,
    Fr. Dominic Thomas.

    Novena Prayer to Saint Peregrine

    St. Peregrine, whom Holy Mother Church has declared Patron of those suffering from Cancer, I confidently turn to you for help in my present sickness. I beg your kind intercession. Ask God to relieve me of this sickness, if it be his Holy Will. Plead with the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of Sorrows, whom you loved so tenderly and in union with whom you have suffered the pains of Cancer, that she may help me with her powerful prayers and loving consolation.
    But if it should be God’s Holy Will that I bear this sickness, obtain for me courage and strength to accept these trials from the loving hand of God with patience and resignation, because he knows what is best for the salvation of my soul. St. Peregrine, be my friend and patron. Help me to imitate you in accepting suffering, and to unite myself with Jesus Crucified and the Mother of Sorrows, as you did. I offer my pains to God with all the love of my heart, for his glory and the salvation of souls, especially my own. Amen.
