Because of the Covid virus, the dispensation to attend Sunday mass in person has been extended until further notice.
For those vaccinated
We will not be dividing the church into vaccinated and non-vaccinated sections. Even if you have been vaccinated, you are still required to wear a mask in church. Others don’t know you have been vaccinated and get upset if people are not wearing masks. Thank you for your cooperation.

Prayer to Christ the Healer
In the comfort of your love,
I pour out to you my Savior,
The memories that haunt me,
The anxieties that perplex me,
The fears that stifle me,
The sickness that prevails upon me,
And the frustration of all the pain
That weaves about within me.
Lord help me to see your peace in my turmoil,
Your compassion in my sorrow,
And your love in my need.
Touch me, O Lord, with your healing power and strength.

“Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid. Trust in God and trust in me” – John 14:1
