WELCOME BACK: Father and Deacon Dan have outlined protocols and procedures for those attending Mass in person as we reopen our doors this weekend. Please adhere to the precautions and safety instructions that apply to our building so that we might stay in compliance with the Bishop’s directives. These guidelines are for the healthy and well-being of our staff as well as those who are worshiping with us. You can view that video here.
For the health and safety of Fr. Richard, Deacon Dan, and all those who choose to attend Mass in person, we will follow strict guidelines set by Bishop Stika (see below). These guidelines cover social distancing, church capacity, and receiving Holy Communion.
***GENTLE REMINDER: The Bishop has extended dispensation from Mass indefinitely for all those who are ill, vulnerable, or uncomfortable with going to church. St. Therese and St. Joseph will continue to live stream Sunday Masses.
FROM BISHOP STIKA:
— Bishop Stika has issued directives for resuming Masses with a congregation and extends dispensation. Click here for the latest video message from Bishop Stika regarding COVID-19 and a tentative schedule for reopening parishes. Read more here regarding the Diocese’s plan for Pentecost weekend.
— The Bishop’s Pastoral Letter, his decree, and associated diagrams for church procedures upon reopening can be read here.
St. Therese Reminders:
- The parish office has resumed regular hours. Please wear a mask when doing business in the office.
- Please continue to give using Give Plus
- Please continue to request Mass intentions. Fr. Richard will be saying Mass daily without a congregation until a plan is made for weekday Masses. There can be multiple intentions on any given day.
- Look for information in our weekly parish emails, on this website, on Facebook, or in the MyParishApp.
PLEASE HELP: To celebrate Mass under the guidelines set by the Bishop, volunteers to usher and sanitize the church are urgently needed. Ushers will be contacted soon to attend training prior to opening the building. Cleaning after Masses is simple and straightforward and all materials will be provided. Please contact the parish office as soon as possible if you are willing to help in either of those roles.
PRAY THE ROSARY: We will suspend recitation of the rosary before Mass until further notice, but consider praying the rosary alone or with your family. It is needed now more than ever. On Mondays and Saturdays, we pray the Joyful Mysteries. Say the Sorrowful Mysteries on Tuesdays and Fridays. The Glorious Mysteries are prayed on Wednesdays and Sundays. And the Luminous Mysteries are prayed on Thursdays.
