(Excerpt from the letter of Cardinal Collins)
"We must also maintain a safe working environment. Clergy, staff and volunteers have the greatest person-to-person interaction in parish/office settings and thus, a heightened risk for transmission of Covid-19. To ensure a safe workplace and to welcome the faithful with an additional level of health and safety, on a temporary basis, we are asking that clergy, staff and volunteers be fully vaccinated or be subject to regular rapid tests."
If someone in your family or a friend you know is sick or confined to home for a period of time, please contact the parish immediately. The priest would like to visit them.
Santa Comunione ai malati e agli infermi
Se qualcuno della vostra famiglia o un amico e' malato o che non puo’ moversi da casa, si prega di contattare la parrocchia immediatamente per una visita pastoral dal parrocco.
The Church is open for you to come for private prayer or community prayer.
As COVID-19 cases decline and the number of people who've gotten the vaccine increases, it is an opportunity for us see each other in person and pray together.
SAFETY is still the priority. If you are grieving, isolated, or still fearful, we keep you close to our heart. We connect in Live stream Masses that are available through our website.
