My Dear Fellow Parishioners,   

     We began in-person Masses last weekend to a limited but very faithful group of individuals. God bless you to all who attended! Please remember that the Archbishop has stressed that if anyone still feels uneasy about attendance, the obligation is dispensed until September 6th. I encourage those desiring to attend, to call the phone number provided and reserve space at the Mass of your choice as only a total of 65 people are allowed to attend each Mass at this time. In addition, we will continue to offer Sunday Mass on Facebook and YouTube. The weekend schedule will be temporarily altered to: Saturday Vigil at 5 p.m. and Sunday at 8:00 and 10:00 a.m. This schedule will allow us to sanitize the church between Masses. Daily Mass is offered Monday through Saturday at 8 a.m. and Confessions are Saturdays from 3:30 to 4:00 p.m.  PLEASE SEE THE COMPLETE LIST OF DIRECTIVES PRINTED IN THIS BULLETIN. Thanks for your  cooperation.

     This coming week, the church will be open daily, from 8:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.  Saturday, 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and Sunday from  9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

     Our roof replacement process is near completion. We’ve had some setbacks due to weather but hope to have it completed early this coming week. Thanks for all your support and understanding.

     Our Annual Raffle this year will be an ALL CASH RAFFLE, 5 prizes in all, $1000, $500, $250, $150, $100. Tickets are being printed and will be mailed (2 books of ten tickets each, $2 per ticket) to parishioners homes. Drawing is set for Sunday, 9/13, 3 p.m.

     Thanks to all who support our parish monetarily and to those using E-Giving.  We have 95 active accounts.  God bless you for your generosity!

     Congratulations to Diane & Ed Parzyck this year’s recipients of the Archdiocesan Saint Joseph Medal for outstanding service to our parish. Diane as our DRE and Ed as our Head Usher along with their sons, are faithful members of our parish and are truly supportive of all that we do. May God bless them with health and happiness, now and always!

     Information letters will be going out soon included with the raffle mailing, regarding all procedures and information pertaining to the reinstatement of Weekend Masses. If you have questions/concerns, please don’t hesitate to call.   Deacon Victor
