I believe you all know that Archbishop Blair has extended the cancellation of public Masses at least to April 30th. This includes Palm Sunday, all of Holy Week, the Triduum (three days; Holy Thursday, Good Friday and the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday), and Easter itself. This is the first time in my life this has happened. I will truly miss celebrating these days with you. As of now, I don’t know how we are to keep those special days of grace. But, know this: I will be praying especially for you, for your health and safety, and for the end of this pandemic in my private Masses.
The church building is open from 9:00 am–2:00 pm, Monday–Thursday. The Sacrament of Penance will be held on Mondays from 5:30–6:30 pm and on Saturdays from 3:00–3:30 pm or until all confessions are heard. Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament will take place on Sundays from 4:00–4:45 pm. In all these situations follow the directives for spatial distancing. What will be available during Holy Week will be announced as it gets closer.
Although we can’t gather together in the church, we are still the Church, united in faith and love and prayer. May God bless and protect us all.
