Voice of Monsignor McEnhill – January 10th

We are blessed with the joy and grace of the Christmas season. The Christmas season concludes today with the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord. Christmas was certainly different this year. We had beautiful celebrations of the feasts of the season. Much effort was put forth by many people to prepare for these holy days. However our church attendance was down. Very understandable in light of our concerns for the coronavirus. Keep praying for an end to all of this so that we can all return to Mass and to the reception of the Holy Eucharist.

I also express my thanks to all of you for making my Christmas so joyful. It is indeed a time to proclaim our faith, to be inspired and encouraged as we all grow further in our faith. I appreciate all who sent Christmas cards, gifts and baked goods to the rectory. I enjoyed them all. Thanks


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.
