ALL Masses Cancelled as of March 17th, 2020

Posted on Mar 17, 2020

In a letter to all priests dated 16 March, Bishop Callahan has suspended the celebration of Mass with the public–indefinitely. Furthermore, he has said that funerals and weddings could proceed but with a limited number of people. Given the recent recommendations of the CDC that would mean no more than ten people. Other dioceses have limited funerals to committal services only. With only ten people in attendance for the next 15 days that probably means just a burial service.
Bishop Callahan hopes that he can remove these restrictions sooner than 1 May but that is yet to be determined. This is an unprecedented event in most of our lives. We will live through it but at this time it is important that all of us isolate to keep the curve of the virus low. Know that our parish is in my prayer and I hope to see you at Mass soon. GRS.
