Returning to church

From Bishop Johnston: an Invitation to Mass

As we begin to return to our public celebrations of Mass, I wish to invite all in our diocese to reflect more deeply on the value of Sunday, why God made it and what it means in the life of a disciple of Jesus Christ.

As referred to in Fr. Justin’s bulletin column on June 7: Bishop Johnston’s video and pastoral letter on Keeping the Lord’s Day: Pastoral Letter on the Importance of Sunday

A note from Father Justin

Welcome back!  After more than 200 days since our initial shutdown in the spring, our parish community has adjusted to many of the new conditions we find ourselves in.  With the exception of Sundays, all of our pre-COVID Mass times have been up and running for several months.  Confession times have expanded to include Tuesday and Thursday evenings.  After delays, all First Communions and nearly all Confirmations have been successfully rescheduled and celebrated.  Many postponed funerals and weddings from the summer are now being observed in these autumn months.  In all of this, we have a renewed appreciation for the gift of being together.

I hope to see you at one of our many services to experience the gift of community, worshiping in a safe space, the one who enables our communion: Jesus Christ!   – Fr. Justin
