Fr. Bruce's July 18-19 letter to the editor

In the July 18-19 Minot Daily News, Fr. Bruce writes of prayer, fasting and hope in these very dark times. "Besides praying and fasting I will be rejoicing because we do have someone available to help us in desperate times. Let us rejoice because there is a reason to have hope for our land and His name is Jesus." Will you join Father in fasting and praying?
You may read the full letter here.
The Surrender Novena Fr. Bruce mentions may be found here.

What to expect at Mass
We welcome you to Mass!  As we continue precautions due to the coronavirus, you will notice a few changes.  Every other pew is blocked off to allow some distancing in the main church.  We have bathrooms on both levels for hand washing and hand sanitizer is available at the entrances for those who wish to use it.  Masks are welcome but not required.  There is a mask-only area in the first four rows of the dining room, for those who wear masks and want to only be around others who also wear masks.  Offertory baskets are not passed, but are available at the entrances.  Please use them or consider supporting your parish through online giving.  We are not yet able to serve food after the Masses.  The pews and touch points (door handles, etc.) are sanitized after every Mass.  We currently go forward for Communion out of the side of the main pews rather than the middle aisle and Communion is brought directly to those in the small side pews.  On top (behind the altar), Communion is as it has always been.  If you have any questions, please contact us.  We are so blessed to be able to celebrate the Mass and sacraments!

Mass times
Our weekend Masses are at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday and 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. on Sunday.  Our daily Masses are 7:15 a.m. Monday, 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, and 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.  We livestream the 4:00 p.m. Mass each Saturday so that you may view the Mass online if you are not able to attend Mass due to illness or other health concerns.  The Mass will be on YouTube immediately and will be posted to this website and our Facebook page by about 5:45 p.m.  You may watch our Masses on the OLG YouTube page of this website. Or go directly to our YouTube channel. The recorded Masses and messages from Fr. Bruce appear first on the YouTube channel. You will need to scroll down to see the livestream weekend Masses. 
In addition:
- You may watch the Mass online at https://bismarckdiocese.com/ or https://www.watchthemass.com/
- You may watch Sunday Mass on TV on Channel 4 or 604 (KXND) locally at 10:00 a.m. and 11:30 p.m. on Sundays. 

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.

Memorare
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.
