Message from Father Richards

As you may have noticed, the holy water has been removed from the fonts by our doors. This was done as a precaution against spreading illness. Holy water is still available from the font in the narthex of the church, for personal and home use. If you'd like a small bottle we have them available at the scrip window.

Also, as a reminder, if you are sick it is better to stay home than come to Mass. You are not doing anything wrong and it is not a sin to miss Mass when you are sick. It is, in fact, the right thing to do so that you don't get anyone else sick by coming.

I will take this opportunity to mention the online giving option and encourage everyone who has not yet signed up to consider it. The Sunday offering is our primary way of continuing operations and if significant numbers of people can't come to Mass, not receiving that offertory will hurt our parish. Online giving is very easy and all you have to do to get started is go to our parish website and scroll down to the bottom of the home page, where there is a link to sign up.
