First Friday Healing Mass

Due to the current guidelines in place for Covid-19, we are unable to celebrate the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick at the 5:30 p.m. Mass on the first Friday of each month at this time.  We will resume the healing Mass as soon as the threat of infection has been lifted.

 

Guidelines/Procedures When Attending Mass

Please observe the following guidelines and procedures:

Before You Arrive

• Be sure to wash your hands or use hand sanitizer.

Face masks are strongly encouraged

• Check your temperature before leaving your home.

Upon Arriving

• Enter only through the front doors from the parking lot on the Gollihar Road side.

• Everyone should maintain 6 feet of distance between them, but families may sit together.

During Mass

• If wearing a mask, we encourage you to keep your face mask on during the Mass.

• You may place your weekly gift in a basket in the vestibule of the church before or after Mass.  We encourage you to practice online giving.

• For distribution of communion, maintain proper distancing from the person in front and behind you.  Receive communion on your ungloved hand. 

Departing Mass

• All are asked to depart Mass in an orderly fashion starting from the rear of the church while maintaining 6 feet of distance from others.

 

Adult Faith Formation – Fall Session

The Bible and the Church Fathers from Dr. Scott Hahn’s St. Paul Center at Steubenville University.  In The Bible and the Church Fathers, you’ll learn who the Early Church Fathers were and how they shaped the way we read Scripture. 

  • The Bible and the Church Fathers will teach you everything you need to know about how the Bible took form. 
  • You’ll learn powerful tools for reading it, and
  • You’ll understand Scripture’s relationship to Tradition and, in particular, to the sacraments.

This program begins September 1st & 3rd and runs for 12 weeks:  Tuesday evening sessions are from 7:00 to 8:30 pm and Thursday afternoon sessions are from 2:00 to 3:30 pm.  All classes will be in the Youth Center where there is plenty of room for proper distancing.

 

Religious Education and Confirmation Classes

Most of you know by now that Sr. Barbara Netek, IWBS is no longer our Religious Education Coordinator.  We are in the process of filling the position of Director of Religious Education and ask for your prayers as we undergo this process.  We are also working with the diocese to determine the best course of action to safely begin religious education during these times of the COVID-19 pandemic.  As we begin to understand the protocols we must take, we will let you know when registration for Religious Education will begin.  We will also keep you informed about Confirmation classes as well.  Hold tight, and we will notify you soon of our procedures for the new year.

 

Confession Times

Due to limitations during the pandemic, we are limiting confession times to Thursdays from 7:15 pm to 7:50 pm and Saturdays from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm.  Confessions may also be scheduled by appointment.

 

Weekend Mass Times

Currently, our weekend Mass times are:  Saturday Vigil: 5:30 pm and Sunday Masses: 8:00 am, 10:00 am, and 5:30 pm.
