Text scam alert!

Statement by Fr. Bruce Krebs in response to the COVID-19 virus
Cancellations and announcements
March 18, 2020
Lent is a time of prayer, fasting and giving alms – a time of sacrifice for the good of others and for the good of our souls. In my 42 years as a priest I have never experienced a Lent like this, where a pandemic is being combatted with the cancellation of Masses, the most powerful prayer of the Church, the source and summit of our Catholic faith. This is new to all of us, and we will get through this together as people who actively and vibrantly live our Catholic faith.
Living our faith will look differently for the next few weeks. We will not be able to attend Mass or classes and activities related to our faith. It seems to me that God is calling us to silence, to that invaluable one-on-one communication of prayer with Him. We will be stronger Catholics, more compassionate Catholics, more devoted Catholics as a result of this time of trial.
Our final public Masses before the cancellations begin are Thursday, March 19, at 7:15 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. Although we are required for the time being to cancel Masses, our church will remain open to you from 7:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. every day so that you may come for times of private prayer while keeping a safe distance from others. A tabernacle will be placed in the main church to allow for more people to pray before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Our parish office will remain open from 9:00 a.m. to Noon and 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. and weekly bulletins will be available at the church entrances. Our food pantry is temporarily closed but will re-open on Monday, March 23. I will continue my ministry of the priesthood, offering confession, anointing the sick and serving the faithful in any ways that I am able. (Read the remainder of Fr. Bruce's statement here.)
