Fr. Bruce explains Covid-related changes
With lower numbers of Covid cases in the State, Bishop Kagan is allowing some activities within the church to return to normal. You will be able to hear him share this news on a video that will be posted Monday, February 8, on the diocesan website at bismarckdiocese.com.
As of February 20 and 21 there will no longer be a dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days. After the 10:30 a.m. Mass on February 14, there will no longer be pew restrictions in the church, which means we will be able to seat people in every pew with more than one family in a pew if needed. Holy Water will again be available in the fonts. Eucharistic ministers may assist with giving holy communion and Mass servers will again be assisting. SCRIP sales will be allowed in the gathering space after the Masses. Some allowances will also be made for serving food at the church.
At present, we will continue to have social distancing in the church dining room during weekend Masses for those who are uncomfortable sitting near others in church. The first four rows in the dining room will be reserved for those who wear masks and want to sit only by others who also wear masks.
Use of face coverings during Mass will remain optional.
For our Faith Formation program, we will continue to monitor what is happening in the schools and adjust accordingly.
Some areas that will not yet change include: 1) no sign of peace during Mass; 2) no Offertory procession with the gifts; 3) no distribution of the Precious Blood at Mass; and 4) confessions will remain behind the screen only.
I am very happy to see some return toward normalcy. One goal of our Parish Council was to move in this direction as soon as it was permissible. May God bless you as we readjust to these changes.
- Fr. Bruce

Prayers to Our Lady before and during Mass:
Parish Prayer to Our Lady of Grace
It is becoming for you, O Mary, to be mindful of us, as you stand near Him who bestowed upon you all graces, for you are the Mother of God and our Queen.
Come to our aid for the sake of the King, the Lord God and Master who was born of you. For this reason, you are called “full of grace.”
Be mindful of us, most holy Virgin, and bestow on us gifts from the riches of your graces, O Virgin, full of grace.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.
