Voice of Monsignor McEnhill – Easter Sunday, April 4th
Happy Easter to you!
On behalf of Father Nowak, Father Brooks, Fr. Sabadell and all the staff here at Our Lady of Refuge, I extend blessings for a glorious Easter.
I continue to welcome more and more of you back to our weekend Masses. We have missed one another during this pandemic. It is good that you are back. We will continue to take all the precautions necessary to assure everyone’s good health. We are so happy to be able to observe and celebrate Holy Week and Easter this year and to share in the graces of Holy Communion.
This indeed is a great day and time to celebrate our faith. I pray that you will be uplifted even further in your faith and that you will take advantage of the services throughout the Easter season to reflect further on this greatest mystery of our faith, that our Lord overcame sin, suffering and death and has called us to share in His risen glory.
Direction from Pews for Communion
The need to maintain the 6 foot social distance requires us to create one way aisles. You will notice colored tape on the carpet as you enter the Church. Green indicates the direction toward the altar to receive Communion. We can only serve two sections at a time. The two center sections are served first and will return to their pew flowing up the center aisle (orange tape). Then the Extraordinary Minister will move to the side tables to serve the side sections where they will now come forward on the green tape and after receiving Jesus return to their pew by following the outside aisles (pink tape). We will be exiting at the end of Mass from back to front again respecting the 6 foot distances. Thank you for your patience and care for each other’s safety.
Liturgy of the Word for Children
Children from ages 4-8 are invited to attend this program during our 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Masses on Sunday. They will be welcomed by trained facilitators that have all taken Protecting God’s Children and have a strong desire to unleash the Gospel with your children so that they too may encounter, grow and witness Jesus Christ. Each week our teachers come prepared with amazing lessons that they truly want to share with your little ones. They rejoin you during the offertory so that they will not miss the Liturgy of the Eucharist.
