**Important ** Information about Mass during Covid

Reminder: We require everyone – including children over 2 – to wear a mask during Mass, and maintain social distancing. (One household per pew!) We ask that parishioners enter by the front doors only so that staff can check you in and keep an accurate count. Hand sanitizer is also provided for use upon entry and before communion. If you need assistance signing up, please call or email the parish office.

Also – because we have a beautiful old church, we do not have a state of the art ventilation system. After consulting with experts, we have determined that in order to keep parishioners safe, we must keep the doors open during Mass for ventilation. When the weather is cold outside, it can get quite chilly in the church, so please dress appropriately if you choose to attend Mass. Thank you for helping to keep everyone safe!

Prayer Service on Zoom – Sunday at 11:00 AM

We will continue to offer the Prayer service on Zoom for those members of our community who are unable to attend Mass, so that we can continue to gather together in prayer. The link for the Zoom prayer service is emailed out through the parish email list on Saturday. The Zoom service for Palm Sunday will be at 1:30 PM instead of our usual time.

During Lent, our theme will be Again & Again, and a daily devotional with the theme will be available to all parishioners. We will have Lay reflections during the Lenten Zoom services. These reflections will also be read at Mass and posted on our website so that our whole community can share in these reflections, together in spirit.

Reader Schedules for Holy Week- Coming Soon!

Franciscan Corner

Francis of Assis was a man of prayer. A man of deep faith. A man of hope. A man of love. In faith, he leaned on God to show him the way. In hope, he reached out to God in the darkness of the caves, in the times of uncertainty. In love, he rested in the heart of God when day was done and he entered into the quiet. Are we people of faith, people of hope, people of love? Can you see yourself leaning on God, or reaching out to God, or resting in the heart of God? Imagine yourself leaning, reaching and resting. What does that image invoke in you? Sit with the feeling and let God be God for you this week.

(Thank you to Sr. Joanne for sharing these Franciscan reflections with us.)
