Letter of Father Lester

Dear Parishioners,

The Bishop has issued a Decree cancelling all public celebration of Masses until further notice due to the pandemic.  We are in process of making guidelines for our Parish to go about our Lenten observances.  These guidelines will be available in the Vestibule and on our website. 

The office is closed, but you can reach us by phone or email.  You can still offer intentions if you would like to as priests are offering private daily masses.

We ask that you please try to spread the word to fellow parishioners.

Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time.  Our Lenten journey becomes more significant in the context of the pandemic.  Let us offer our sacrifices for our family and for the world.

Sincerely,
Fr. Lester

A Prayer for Protection in Time Of Pandemic

O Mary, you always brighten our path as a sign of salvation and of hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, who at the Cross, took part in Jesus’ pain while remaining steadfast in faith. O loving Mother, you know what we need, and we are confident you will provide for us as at Cana in Galilee.
Intercede for us with your son Jesus, the Divine Physician,
for those who have fallen ill, for those who are vulnerable, and for those who have died. Intercede also for those charged with protecting the health and safety of others and for those who are tending to the sick and seeking a cure.
Help us, O Mother of Divine Love, to conform to the will of the Father and to do as we are told by Jesus, who took upon himself our sufferings and carried our sorrows, so as to lead us, through the Cross, to the glory of the Resurrection.
Amen
Under thy protection, we seek refuge, O Holy Mother of God.
In your needs despise not our petitions, but deliver us always from all dangers, O glorious and blessed virgin.
Amen
(Adapted from the Prayer of Pope Francis)
