From Paula King, Chair of Parish Pastoral Council:

Hello all!
Thanks to everyone for your support and input over the
last few weeks. We have learned a lot and have
developed an orderly and safe way to celebrate the
Eucharist in our Parish. We will continue to offer a
10:00 Mass on Sundays as we have yet to reach capacity
or had to turn anyone away. Once Father Mahoney
comes on board, however (7/27/20), we will need to
ramp up to our regular schedule of Masses.
With that said, we need to come up with a schedule to be
sure we have enough people to manage our parishioners
and visitors at every Mass so everyone feels safe and
welcome. We have found that a “crew” of at least four,
preferably five, people are needed to manage the 10:00
Mass. Fewer will be needed at a 7:30 Mass, but I suspect
a 4:30 Mass will be as well attended (if not more so)
than the recent 10:00 Masses. The crews break down as
follows:
One usher as greeter / counter. This same person can
hand out bulletins at the end of Mass.
Two ushers to seat people in the main congregation and
one to seat people in the balcony (if needed). These same
ushers would be responsible for dismissing people for
the distribution of Communion.
One usher downstairs at the end of Mass to keep an eye
on the collection basket and hand out bulletins.
One usher to wipe down the elevator between use and
keep an eye on the collection basket at the top of the
stairs.
We also need one Extraordinary Minister and a lector for
each Mass.
At the end of Mass, everyone would be asked to help
spray down the pews and kneelers, as well as other hard
surfaces people may have touched (railings, for
example). If everyone helps, it only takes about 10-15
minutes.
If you can help, please let me know. If you have a
preference for a particular Mass, please let me know.
Also, if there are dates you won’t be here, let me know
that as well. I will come up with a schedule and get back
to everyone.
Again, that you for all your support.
Paula

Message from Fr. Eddy:

Hello Everyone,
Since there is no new information to convey at this writing, I thought I would take a different direction.

 Jesus, in Today’s Gospel tells us, “Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy burdened, and I will give you rest.”
For the past three months we have been burdened with restrictions placed upon us because of the pandemic which has affected all of our lives.  Our spiritual and social lives have been disrupted, and all of this has caused a burden on everyone.

 During these months, we have also witnessed social unrest and violence, and on a more positive note, peaceful demonstrations promoting peace and justice. 

 In the Scriptures, we are all asked, as disciples of the One Lord, to accept His invitation to pray as Jesus did, “that all may be One as We are One.”
We may at times feel burdened with our own personal problems as well, but we must have faith and place our hope in Jesus who promises that He will make our burden light and give us rest

Among the many prayers you may have, I would like to introduce a prayer adapted from the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem:

O Lord Jesus Christ, we pray to You through Your five wounds.
Give us the strength to love all whom Your Father has created and, especially our enemies. Free our hearts and souls from sin, from prejudice, from self-interest and from cowardice, so that we may be worthy of Your Sacrifice. Let your Spirit fall upon us all, so that it may make us committed and sincere ambassadors of peace and love among our brothers and sisters and, especially, among all those who do not believe in You. Give us faith to face all the problems of everyday life and to deserve one day to approach Your presence, humbly but without fear.  Amen
