Mass in Time of Pandemic

My dear parishioners,
Today I celebrated the Mass in Time of Pandemic (the first of many over this time). This Mass is obviously very much needed at the moment.  It is now ready and available on our website.

The text of this Mass including my sermon and Prayers of the Faithful are also available to you the faithful, in order to read it and pray and hopefully derive some comfort and hope at this difficult time. The Scripture readings are beautiful and very appropriate.

May I encourage you to take some time to celebrate this Mass with me and also read and meditate upon the Sacred Scriptures for this Mass and feel God’s presence at this time. You will find all the texts for this Mass here.
