On May 18th, our new Archbishop Gregory Hartmayer, O.F.M. Conv., sent a wonderful email indicating that, although the dispensation of required attendance at Sunday Mass is extended through June 28, 2020, we can and will be resuming daily and Sunday public Masses in the church, with the following guidelines:

  • All persons wishing to attend any Mass should, for their safety and the safety of others:
    • not have a temperature of 99.6 or above, have current coughing/sneezing episodes, or do not feel well
    • Are recommended to wear a protective face mask in church
    • practice social distancing of 6′ separation from other households, including no physical contact during the sign of peace, or before or after Mass
    • Refrain from singing out loud (only the Music Minister and a select few choir members will sing)

PLEASE SEE the Note from the Pastor column on p. 2 of the MAY 24, 2020 Bulletin for Fr. Tomy’s describing of all of our resumed public Masses and more!

All non-liturgical Parish activities and gatherings are cancelled/suspended until further notice, including: Religious Education, RCIA, Choir Practice, and Ministry Meetings.

We discourage you from having gatherings at our parish at this time. Please stay safe.

INDIVIDUAL CONFESSION: still by appointment

Please call the Parish Office to make an appointment during the normal office hours.

Please, we ask, Confession and Anointing of the Sick should be done only in genuine emergencies.

Note that in circumstances where access to Confession is limited or unavailable, the Church does offer the provision of an Act of Perfect Contrition:
“Where the individual faithful find themselves in the painful impossibility of receiving sacramental absolution, it should be remembered that perfect contrition, coming from the love of God, beloved above all things, expressed by a sincere request for forgiveness (that which the penitent is at present able to express) and accompanied by votum confessionis, that is, by the firm resolution to have recourse, as soon as possible, to sacramental confession, obtains forgiveness of sins, even mortal ones (cf. CCC, no. 1452).”
Apostolic Penitentiary

Perfect contrition requires:

1. The love of God

2. The sincere desire for forgiveness

3. The ardent commitment to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation as soon as possible, when available
