On August 26th, Fr. Daniel Firmin, our diocesan administrator until the ordination of Bishop-elect Parkes, announced that the dispensation from the obligation to attend mass has been extended until Bishop Parkes is ordained on September 23rd. At time, the bishop will determine how to proceed in this matter.
We will continue to offer Mass 10 times throughout the week. Even though the dispensation has been extended, please consider attending one of these Mass opportunities so that you can receive the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. We continue to follow strict distancing protocols to provide a safe environment for you to worship.
And please remember that we rely on your generosity to meet our financial commitments. Thank you to all who have signed up for our online giving and continue to give. Thank you to all who continue to put your envelopes in the basket or send them in by mail. If you are able to do so, please remember us when planning your monthly or weekly budgets.
Peace in Christ,
Fr. David Koetter
