Voice of Monsignor McEnhill – February 14th


We begin the holy season of Lent this Wednesday, February 17th as we observe Ash Wednesday.

Archbishop Vigneron is calling all Catholics to return to regular attendance at Sunday Mass. What better way is there to do this than to make a commitment to enter into the spirit of Lent and renew our Love and dedication to our God as we strive with God’s help to overcome our faults and failings.

We all need to break out from this pandemic and gradually return to all that we use to do. At the top of this list of priorities should be our attendance at Mass and using the Holy Eucharist for our growth in faith. I invite you, I urge you to come to church on Ash Wednesday and begin this holy journey and renewal on the way to Easter Sunday.

Ashes will be distributed at Mass at 8:15am in the morning, at a scripture prayer service at 4:00pm and at a Mass in the evening at 7:30pm. Do come. You will be glad you did. I wish all of you a holy and a spiritually fuLfilling Lenten season.

Msgr. Gerald McEnhill

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.
