The coronavirus (COVID-19) presents unprecedented challenge. As a church we are called to be a source of love, peace, hope and stability in uncertain times. We are using new ways to proclaim the gospel, to be community of faith in the midst of fear, confusion and inconveniences. Private celebration of the Holy Eucharist on daily basis, praying for you and our intentions, and one hour devotion/adoration every Friday; this is live streamed on facebook for us to join as a Parish Community praying together. Weekend Masses will continue to be live on facebook at our usual times for Mass. Homilies, Parish News, Prayer points and biblical passages, will from time to time be uploaded on our website and facebook page. Let us continue to be spiritually connected, as we observe physical distancing, please practice social connection as well.
At this time of global pandemic, many are experiencing stress; many are struggling with financial anxiety and Our Parish community is no exception. This raises a very real need and serious challenge to our Parish. Several Parishioners have been asking what can be done during this indeterminate amount of time that churches can’t safely gather physically.
