Our diocese will begin resuming the public celebration of Masses with important restrictions and safeguards.

Dear Friends:

As you may have heard, on Monday, May 11, our diocese will begin resuming the public celebration of Masses with important restrictions and safeguards. For a long while, the experience of Holy Mass will perhaps seem very different.

The COVID-19 pandemic presents a serious threat to physical health. First, please keep in mind that there is no way possible for us to eliminate all risk of catching this virus. The only way to do that would be to shutter our churches completely until a vaccine or regularly available effective treatment comes along. While some people may remain asymptomatic or have only mild symptoms, remember that this virus can be deadly for especially certain groups of people. In charity, please think of these vulnerable people.

At the same time, as Catholics we know that divine worship and the Sacraments are of high importance for the spiritual good and the overall well-being of the faithful. With that in mind, here are a few preliminary considerations:

The Fire of God's Love

05-31-2020Father Gregory Wilson

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

We arrive at Pentecost. In the sacred liturgy, we wear the color of fire, the fire of the Holy Spirit, who came upon the Apostles and disciples gathered with our Blessed Mother Mary in prayer in the Upper Room (see Acts 1:14; 2:1-11).

“Easter, if it is to be authentic, … cannot stay hidden behind any locked door and neither will it allow us to remain hidden. … The culture of fear is arrogant in its pride and thinks that it alone has words to speak. The culture of fear lies. The culture of fear would convince us that we are its children.
