Returning to church

From Bishop Johnston

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

After almost two months of public morning and evening daily Masses, on Monday, July 6th we returned to a liturgy schedule that looks more closely like our pre-pandemic one:  Monday-Friday Masses at 6:15AM and 8:15AM; Saturdays at 8:15AM.  Our weekend Masses (4PM Sat; 9AM and 11AM Sunday) remain limited based on demand, staffing availability, and the necessary clearing requirements between services.  These weekend services continue to require advanced registration.  Thank you for your continued patience and flexibility, as we continue to welcome families and individuals into our church this summer for worship, personal prayer and the celebration of the sacraments. 

– Fr. Justin
