Office of the Vicar General

Due to the uptick in COVID 19 infections we are issuing the following guidance.

  1. All parishes and schools should FIRST review and follow your public health department’s guidance. If it is unclear, contact these local health officials directly
  2. If your parish is not under a local mask mandate- the diocese strongly encourages that masks be worn at all times in an indoor setting and in large outdoor gatherings where the 6 foot social distancing cannot be adhered to. This includes Masses, meetings and appointments.
  3. All parishes and schools should continue, or as the case may be resume, full sanitation practices.
  4. Priests, deacons and Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion must wear masks and use hand sanitizer prior to distributing communion.
  5. Should a priest, deacon or other parish minister have direct contact with a Covid positive person, they should immediately get tested.

Parish Renovation Campaign Prayer

O God, hear our humble prayer. Pour your Holy Spirit upon every person within our parish that all may come to deepen their faith and serve you as faithful and generous witnesses to the enduring hope found only in You. With the help of Mary, our Mother, who with Joseph created a Most Holy Family may we bear witness to the glory of God with great joy. In Luke’s Gospel, Mary said“the Lord has done great things for me and holy is His Name.” Therefore, bless this campaign by igniting a new enthusiasm for the sacred mission we share as disciples of your Son. Help us to Do Great Things and allow us to continue to share Your love and mercy with others. We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ, the source of our hope, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever. Amen.
