Fr. Tim's Pastor's Pen

It has been two weeks since we returned to weekday Mass.  How nice it is to be back in the church with people again.  On behalf of Fr. Kevin and myself, I want to thank all of those attending daily Mass for following the guidelines for seating and communion.  Yes, it feels strange, but it allows us to be back celebrating Mass in public again.

Speaking of Mass, as you know we have been working to live stream the 8am Mass on Sunday and our results have been spotty.  Between sound systems and internet connections, we continue to work through the issues, testing, and experimenting.  Hopefully this weekend Mass was better.

You might have seen around the parish property that we have begun the installation of the fence.  Back in February (before the coronavirus pandemic) we notified parish families that one of the steps we are taking to improve School Security was to upgrade and add fencing.  We have placed a seven-foot fence around the playground perimeter, and we are in the process of adding a seven-foot decorative aluminum fence in front of the school classrooms and by the area of the Parish Center.  These additions will limit all access to the school and students.  We have delayed the work to be done on the inside of the old church to ensure we have the financial resources to complete the project   

As of this writing, we have yet to receive any news about opening the church for weekend Masses.  We will continue to send out our biweekly email updates and will keep the website up to date as well. 

Finally, this is officially Memorial Day Weekend.  As we remember our military men and women, especially those who have given their lives for our country and the freedoms we enjoy, allow me to offer this prayer: God of power and mercy, you destroy war and put down earthly pride.  Banish violence from our midst and wipe away our tears, that we may all deserve to be called your sons and daughters.  Keep in your mercy those men and women who have died in the cause of freedom and bring them safely into your kingdom of justice and peace. We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen. 

Your friend in Christ,

Fr. Timothy H. Sherwood
