GREETING FOR THE TWELFTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY TO ALL OUR FATHERS!!       21 JUNE 20
Even though things look & feel different, we still want to be conscious of those trying to pray quietly before Mass and maintain a respectful silence.
​As you can see, there are no Missals in the pews as well as pew envelopes, etc.  We have removed everything for sanitary reasons.  But, you are welcome to follow on your phone and remember to keep it on silent.  If you don't already have the Laudate App on your phone to follow along with the Mass, it is an alternative to use since we don't have Missals right now in the pews.  
If any of you would like to have a Missal, we do have them in the office if you would like to stop by to pick one up for your use at home.  If you get one to use at Mass, you must put your name on it and do not share it with anyone else.  It can only be used as your own personal Missal.  
As directed by the Bishop, our masks must be worn throughout the Mass except for receiving Communion.  Father will enter from the Sacristy and there will not be an entrance procession.  There will not be a Sign of Peace and we will not have any music.  There will also not be a Recessional Procession and Father will go right into the Sacristy.  We also cannot, at this time remain for private devotions after Mass.  If you must leave the church to use the restroom during Mass, there are signs posted in the restroom for proper sanitization as you leave.  PLEASE DO NOT LET your children go to the restroom alone.  Children 16 yrs. old and younger MUST BE accompanied by an adult in order to sanitize properly as you leave.
When it is time for Communion, remember that Communion is IN THE HAND ONLY.  Please remember to use your hand sanitizer before you leave your pew for Communion.  The Ushers will come to your pew, one side at a time, to direct you to stand on the yellow strips in the center aisle in order to keep Social Distance.  You should keep your mask on until you get to Father and remove it in order to place the Sacred Host in your mouth, then replace your mask and move aside to return to your seat.  
At the end of Mass, the Ushers will dismiss you pew by pew to avoid any loitering outside.  Please be patient as you wait for your pew to be dismissed.  And, of course, there will not be any Hospitality.  
Please remember not to touch or kiss the statues on your way out of the Church.

WEEKLY ANNOUNCEMENTS   7 JUNE 2020   Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity  REOPENING OF OUR CHURCH INSTRUCTIONS
​ 1. We continue to anticipate returning to Mass next weekend, June 13/14.  Weekday Masses will continue to be suspended at this time.  We are planning to return to the same (3) Mass times as before; 4:30, 8:00, & 10:30.  The 10:30 Mass will continue to be Live Streamed for those who are uncomfortable returning to Mass at this time.  
2. However, there are many restrictions to consider.  Please come to church wearing your own personal mask and bring your own personal hand sanitizer.  Masks will be worn throughout the Mass.  As you enter, an usher will take your non-contact temperature.  Please be patient and wait for an user to seat you in order for us to adhere to Social Distancing regulations.  
3. If you must leave the church to use the Restroom during Mass, there will be signs posted in the Restroom for proper sanitization as you leave.  PLEASE DO NOT let your children go to the Restroom alone.  They MUST BE accompanied by an adult in order to properly sanitize as you leave. 
4. Please continue to maintain the 6 ft. distance in the Communion line.  Please use your personal hand sanitizer before you leave your pew.  Reception of Communion will be IN THE HAND ONLY.  We cannot receive on the tongue at this time.  Please remove your mask to receive Communion, step aside once you have received the consecrated host and then replace your mask and return to your seat.  
5 Please avoid ANY & ALL physical contact during the Mass.   There  WILL NOT be any sign of Peace.  Please refrain from touching/kissing the statues in the rear of the church.  
6. We are limited to 25 % capacity inside the church, but we will have chairs on the patio separated by 6ft.  Please bear in mind that, if necessary, we may have to turn people away who come without a mask or if we have reached our limit for that particular Mass. 
7. At the direction of the Bishop, Mass will be shortened during this time.  Father will begin with the Collect, there WILL NOT BE  any music and, as we said, we  WILL NOT have the Sign of Peace.
8. At the end of each Mass, Father will make a request for about 6 people to stay to help sanitize for the next Mass.  Remember that someone sanitized ahead of you and it's now your turn to sanitize for the next Mass.
9  Father Eliseus will be resuming the hearing of Confessions in the Hospitality Room beginning at 3:30 on June 13th.  Please remember to wear your mask.
10. Once again, thank you to all of you who are continuing to drop off, mail in or use the Online Giving for your weekly Contributions.  If you prefer, you are welcome to continue that practice as we return to Mass.

13. We have an Usher Meeting scheduled for Monday at 6:00 PM in the Church and we're recommending that all Ushers attend this very important meeting. 
14. Please remember to wait for an Usher to dismiss your pew at the end of Mass in order to maintain Social Distancing as we leave.  Unfortunately, private prayer time or devotions cannot be permitted at this time.

GREETING FOR THE THIRTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME.  28 JUNE 20

As we've been saying, things look & feel different, but we still want to be conscious of those trying tto pray quietly before Mass and maintain a respectful silence. 

This weekend we celebrate The Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time with our celebrant Fr. Eliseus. 

We continue to not have Missals in the pews as well as pew envelopes.  We have removed everything for sanitary reasons.  You are welcome to follow on your phone and remember to keep it on silent.  If you don't already have the Laudate App on your phone to follow along with the Mass, it is  an alternative to use since we can't have Missals right now.  The link for the Laudate App is also on our website.   If any of you would like to have a Missal, we do have them in the office if you would like to stop by to pick one up.  Father Eliseus has decided that if you have picked up a Missal and would like to use it at Mass, please make sure that you put our name on it and take it back home with you.  

ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR THE THIRTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

As we said last week, on order to maintain proper social distance, the Ushers will dismiss each pew one-by-one going from the back rows to the front.  Please wait for the Usher and follow his direction.  And, please remember, we will not have any hospitality.

Also, as we said in the Greeting, we cannot at this time, remain for private devotion after Mass and please remember not to touch or kiss the statues as you leave.  Please do not linger outside as you leave.  Unfortunately, Father is not able to be out front to greet everyone.  

We are still not able to have bulletins until the restrictions are lightened up.  Please remember to continue to bring your own personal hand sanitizer to use just before Holy Communion.  Don't forget to keep checking our website often for changes and /or updates as time goes on.

Our Thift Shop Re-opened on Monday,  June 15th.  The hours are Monday & Thursday from 10 - 2 and Tuesday & Wednesday from 9 - 2.  However, they need 2 or 3 volunteers to commit to work one day a week.  If they are not able to recruit more volunteers, they will have to consider closing again.  Masks are required and temperatures will be taken.  The Thrift Shop is following the same protocol as the Church.  There is a table outside for those of you who would like to drop off donations.  

Scrip cards continue to be available at the office during the work week.  We cannot, at this time, sell them on the patio after the Masses.  Please call ahead to be sure someone is in the office.  There are always people at the office on Monday mornings who can sell Scrip to you.  After the Final Blessing, we will need about 6 people to help us sanitize  before the next Mass.  You you can stay to help, please let one of the ushers know as you leave.  Thanks you.  

As directed by the Bishop, our masks must be worn throughout the Mass except for receiving Communion.  Father will enter from the Sacristy and there will not be an entrance procession.  There will not be a sign of peace and we will not have any music.  There will also not be a Recessional Procession and Father will go right into the Sacristy at the ed of  Mass.  If you must leave the church to use the restroom during Mass.  We also cannot, at this time, remain for private devotion after Mass.  If you must leave the church to use the restroom during Mass, there are signs posted in the restroom for proper sanitization as you leave.

When it is time for Communion, remember that Communion is IN THE HAND ONLY.  Please remember to use your hand sanitizer before you leave your pew for Communion.  The Ushers will come to your pew, one side at a time, to direct you to stand on the yellow strips in the center aisle in order to keep Social Distance.  You should keep your mask on until you get to Father and remove it in order to place the Sacred Host in your mouth, the replace your mask and move aside to return to your seat.    At the end of Mass, tthe Ushers will dismiss us pew by pew in order to avoid any lotering outside.  Please be patient as you wait for your pew to be dismissed.  And, of course, there will not be any Hospitality.
