Mass Times and Office Hours

Letter from Fr. Manning regarding Coronavirus 2020

Dear Parishioners and Friends,

These are indeed difficult days where worry and concern about the unknown have caused great upset. The constant growing announcements by government, educational, civic, private and church officials have greatly stirred the waters. I wish you peace and strength in the Risen Lord Jesus!

I am sure you are aware that Cardinal Sean has directed that all Parishes Masses (Sunday & Daily) be suspended as of 4 PM Saturday, March 14. (The exception: Funerals, Weddings & Baptisms). Home and Institutional Visitation will all be suspended. All Faith Formation and Social Gatherings will be on hiatus. Our Parish will be respectfully cooperating in all his directives. All of this is done for the sake of the common good which is always greater than each one of us.

For those who seek the comfort of Daily Mass, it airs everyday on the Catholic Channel at 9:30 AM and is rebroadcast at 7 PM and 11:30 PM. On the Catholic Channel, the Sunday Masses are aired at 10 AM, 7 PM and 11:30 PM. You can get more info at www.catholictv.org.

Our Chapel on the lower level will be open each day for those who wish to come and pray. Many of you may find the quiet moments of personal and private prayer an instrument of strength and peace.

As a parish dedicated to Mary, the Mother of God, we entrust in prayer through Mary's intercession that we are able to return to the full celebration of the sacraments, especially the Holy Eucharist as soon as possible. Please know that you and your loved ones are in my prayers.

Father Brian
