Weekly Mass

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there, and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

My Dear Parish Family,

Today, March 31, 2020, we have received a directive from Bishop Scharfenberger stating that this coming Sunday we are unable to distribute palms as was ours, and many other parishes intentions. It was furthermore reinforced that we should not be congregating for the safety of all.

In consultation with our parish trustees and our pastoral council president, there is agreement that for everyone’s safety, both sites will remain closed for Palm Sunday and Easter. Please know this terribly pains my heart as I so wanted to provide you access to the Blessed Sacrament at this most sacred time of the year. But I also must keep all your safety in mind. 

Our Holy Week Masses will continue to be posted on Facebook and on our Website in order that we may come together spiritually. Together, wherever we may be, let us celebrate that Jesus rose and conquered death so that we might rise with him to new life! In the words of Saint Paul, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!"

In Christ’s Peace,

Fr. Cole
