As many of you know expenses do not stop during difficult times. We now more than ever are in need of your financial support.

Yours In Christ

Letter From Fr. John

We are now nearing the end of our Lenten journey, beginning the path of Holy Week. And what a Lent it has been. Just thinking how things changed for us as a faith family. Our first Sunday of Lent seemed to go somewhat normal, but then it changed. The Second Sunday of Lent we gathered with a few changes to the Mass. We stopped holding hands for the Lord's Prayer and shaking hands for the greeting of peace. The next 3 Sundays we had a completely different experience. We had to find new ways of prayer and view the Mass from our televisions or computer screens. This indeed has been a challenging time for all of us. I do not think anyone thought we would experience not having public Masses being celebrated. This Lent has been a difficult time. It really was a journey into the desert. But we know that Jesus is part of our journey of faith.

So we begin Holy Week. One that will be different from all others. We will not be gathering to bless and receive our palms. We will not participate in the reading and reflection of the the gospel of the Lord's Passion. Even though we will not gather for the public services of Holy Week, this is still a holy week. The life and mystery of our Lord Jesus transcends space and time. We will still recall our Lord when he gathered with His disciples as He shared the Last Supper with them. We will recall Jesus as He walked the streets of Jerusalem on His way to Calvary. We will recall his suffering on the cross and His death. This indeed is a holy week because we know that Jesus is walking with us on our journey of faith through these troubled times. So as a family of faith let us grow in holiness in a new and yet uncomfortable way this year.

As a parish family our prayers are with Deacon Michael Lang and his family as they grieve the loss of their wife and mother Diane. Because of the restrictions at this time, a public Memorial Mass will be scheduled at a later date. May Diane rest in peace.

God bless you,

Fr. John
