In gratitude to our Father in heaven for His love, and for the gift of our own fathers, or of those who have been like fathers to us, let us honor them by returning their love and lifting them up in thanksgiving at our Eucharistic Celebration.
Whether you are with us this Sunday at St. Luke's or at home participating in televised or online Mass, be assured of our Almighty Father's blessings and graces this Father's Day!
Important reminders for those who will be attending St. Luke's Sunday Mass:
1) As directed by the County Medical Officer, for contact tracing purposes, you will need to fill out and sign a Consent Form. One person can do it for the whole household. Consent Forms are available at the entrance of the church. Please bring your own pens. Or, you can download and print the form (click here) and bring it to church when you come to Mass.
2) You are advised to occupy the seats in the community center. This is in compliance with the much stricter mandate from the County Health Officer to observe proper ventilation and ensure that chairs are sanitized after each Mass. You can bring your own cushion for kneeling.
3) Due to limited seating, you are required to sign up here and indicate the number of people attending.
4) Please wear your face mask at all times while in church. Please bring your personal sanitizers as well.
5) To protect the health of all, you are encouraged to receive Holy Communion in the hand. Those who will receive by the tongue will be last in the line.
6) Those receiving Holy Communion are to adhere to the 6ft distancing indicated by the yellow tape markers on the floor. After receiving communion, follow the arrow to go back to your places for prayer.
Always thankful for your cooperation and support.
Continued prayers for God's protection and providing care upon all, as we meet again at Christ's Eucharistic Feast, dear friends at St. Luke!
Rev. Jonathan Paala
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. (John 3:16-17)
