Archbishop Gregory J. Hartmayer, OFM Conv. announced on September 25, 2020, that the dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass for persons with health reasons or concerns remains in effect for all in the Archdiocese until further notice. Because of this, those wishing to participate in Mass and receive Holy Communion can do so by attending any Mass any day of the week. The obligation to keep a holy Sabbath remains, and Catholics are reminded that, even while homebound, they are to devote themselves to, among other practices, personal prayer, meditation on the readings from the Sunday Mass and the making of a spiritual Communion. While those who are at high risk or who care for someone at risk can and should stay home and participate in an online or televised liturgy, Archbishop Hartmayer encourages those who are healthy and are not burdened with the fear of being exposed to the virus to begin returning to Mass and receive the grace of the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist. Watching the celebration of the Mass on the computer or TV cannot become a substitute for receiving the sacraments.
Persons are encouraged to take their temperature before leaving home and to avoid coming to church if the temperature is 99.6 or greater.
Anyone who is not feeling well should remain at home, out of concern for others. Those who are at risk or who care for those at risk and those who are concerned that they or their family might become sick should stay at home and view broadcast or online Masses.

“Do nothing out of selfishness; rather, humbly regard others as more important than yourselves…” (Philippians 2:3)
Pride and ego are hard things to control. We see how others act or dress and think we are superior to them. We idolize our own self-image. But, if we truly believe everything is a gift from God, we recognize all the people that God has put into our lives as gifts! We are grateful for how they enrich our lives. Pray every day for the people in your life: your family, your friends, and those who make you angry.
Please join us tomorrow at Noon! The prayer service will include the Divine Mercy Chaplet and the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary, so bring your favorite rosary with you! If you cannot attend, please spend some time in prayer for healing and peace in our nation and in the world. -Fr. Terry
