During this cold and flu season, and especially due to the coronavirus epidemic, all parishioners are reminded of the following: Those who are ill are not obliged to attend mass and should stay home to recover. We also ask that those who are not well refrain from offering your hand to others at the sign of peace. In line with preventive measures, we are suspending Holy Communion from the communal chalice. Also, please receive the Communion Host from the hand and not on the tongue. We pray to our Lord for the protection of all and the health and recovery of all who are ill.
"But [Jesus] was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed." (Isaiah 53:5)
