We will begin distributing Sunday bulletins this weekend to those who attend Mass or the Communion Service. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the bulletin will be handed to you by an usher who will be wearing gloves and a facial covering.  This will take place AFTER Mass outside the Church as you depart.  Bulletins will NOT be available at any other time.  It will be posted on the website and our parish Facebook page.  Please contact Mary Jo at the parish office if you would like a copy mailed to you.


If you have something you’d like included in the Sunday bulletin, please send it to Mel Bechtold at .  As you may (or may not) know, Mel has been posting my daily update to Facebook and assisting with the parish websites.  I am grateful to Pat Klasner who has been preparing the bulletin for many years.  Pat will remain on staff and continue to serve the Parish.

BIBLE STUDYSaturday morning in the Pastoral Center (Office Meeting Room).  Following the CDC guidelines for gatherings, the men’s group meets at 8:00 a.m. and the women’s group meets at 9:30 a.m. 

May God bless you!  Please be safe!
