Parishioners of OLV Please Read!

We are entering phase three of our parish re-opening. The light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter! We are happy to announce that on Monday June 1st we will begin to distribute Holy Communion again. This is an abbreviated process until we return to Mass on the weekend of the June 13th-14th. We will distribute Holy Communion daily at 12:15 and Sunday June 7th at 8:30, 10:30, and 1:00 pm. Upon arriving to the Church ushers will organize attendance according to social distancing guidelines. A very brief prayer service will be held and then you will come forth to receive communion. We realize that this is out of the ordinary but it is an essential next step until we resume Mass.

On the weekend of June 13th and 14th we will begin phase four and we will resume public mass at our regular times: 4:00 pm Saturday, 7:30, 9:30, and 12:00 pm with communion distributed after mass. We will have social distancing measures in place at this time and if the need arises we will be able to offer mass simultaneously in the school gym. The obligation to attend mass will be suspended by Bishop Mark until further notice. While all are encouraged to attend mass, we will continue to offer mass via YouTube with the option to receive the Eucharist after each mass. As already mentioned this transitional time will take some adjusting. We are grateful for your continued patience!

You will likely receive an email and a mailer with similar information. We apologize for the redundancy, but we are making every effort to reach everyone. If there are any changes to our plan, they will be available immediately on our website. Please check back often:

Thank you again for your prayers and generosity!

In Christ,

Fathers Dadey and Jonathan
