A Letter from Fr. Chris:

June 3, 2020

Dear Friends,

It hardly seems possible that the month of June is upon us. As the past two and one half months have been, I am sure June 2020, will be much different than other Junes we have experienced. I am especially sad for those graduating from colleges, universities, high school, as well as our own parish school who will not be able to have a “normal” graduation experience from their schools. I hope you and your family are staying well as we continue to deal with the Corona Virus pandemic. As I announced last month, we are offering Sunday Mass through our parish’s You Tube channel. These Masses are recorded earlier in the weekend, and are available through our parish website. Thank you to the many of you who have commented favorably about having the opportunity to attend Mass from your parish church while remaining at home.

We recently received a memo and information from the bishop’s office listing the necessary guidelines and policies that will have to be met before we will be able to return to our church building for Sunday Mass. Some of those directives have been listed on our website (click link here), with additions and updates posted on a regular basis. Please be assured that we will be working as expeditiously and prudently as possible to be meet these policies and guidelines.

Thank you for your continued financial support of our parish, and for your encouragement and support in so many ways through these challenging days. May we continue to pray for our nation, our world, and for one another.

Father Chris Linsler
