A Letter From Our Pastor

A Letter from Fr. Brian Chadwick
August 5, 2020

Dear OLG parishioner,
    I want to share with all of you the great news that we have opened our church for Masses. Daily Mass is Monday-Friday at 8:30am in the Church area, not the chapel. Weekend Masses are Saturday 4:30pm and Sunday 8am and 10:30am. We are practicing social distancing. Every other pew is roped off. Families may sit together, but there must be distancing between families. There are markings on the pews to serve as a guide for social distancing. **Please wear a mask when you come to Mass for everyone’s safety.**
    We ask that there be no congregating in the church building after Masses as much as is possible. Hand sanitizer is available at every entrance and exit, and the church is being cleaned by volunteers after every Mass. Right now there are only three areas of entry to the church building: the front vestibule area, and the breezeway between the school and church, front and back. If you park in the back parking lot, you can enter only through the breezeway. If people are sick, have a fever, cough, or other symptoms of illness, then they should stay home.
    Know that everyone now has a dispensation from their Mass obligation until November 1, 2020. If you decide that it is not yet safe to come to Mass, then that is fine. We are still showing Mass at 10:30am on Sunday on our website.
    Confessions are at the normal time on Saturdays 3pm-4pm. They are taking place in the Tiny Tot chapel until further notice.
    Know that Fr. Gregory and I are praying for you all. We look forward to the day when things can get back to normal. Let us continue to keep one another in prayer in these difficult times.
Thank You,
Fr. Brian

The Vigil Mass will be Replayed Live on Sunday @ 10:30 AM
