"Look at the birds in the sky; they do not sow or reap, they gather nothing into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are not you more important than they?" NAB, Mt. 6:26
We will make available as many Mass times for worship as needed, but here are some thoughts to maximize our space:
- One, you may go to any Mass or no Mass. You are dispensed from the obligation of Sunday Worship at Mass.
- Two, you should consider a weekday Mass if you have that flexibility. We are not "signing" up for them as there will be space.
- Three, Mass times are arranged so we can livestream with the best internet speed we have.
- Four, please be FLEXIBLE. This is not a permanent arrangement.
- Five, God has and always will provide!

A feature of one of our parish families. They are stewards of the land.
Pope Francis and prior popes have asked us to be attentive to the earth which the Lord has created. This family's effort is just one such movement!
