Phase II Reopening

波士頓華人天主教會

恢復公開彌撒

在麻州恢復開放的第一個階段,我們非常高興地通知大家我們將於6月14日開始返回教堂參與彌撒啦!現在,彌撒只在主日上午10點舉行。停車場由上午9點至下午1點開放。我們按照貝克州長和波士頓總教區所制定的指導方針,勤奮而小心地向公眾打開我們的大門。這些指導方針將會被嚴格執行,此間,我們每人都肩負著保護自己與他人的安全與健康的責任和義務。樞機為那些不能親身參與彌撒的人延長了赦免期。我們建議凡65歲以上和任何有潛在健康問題的人在這個時候留在家裡,並繼續參與網絡彌撒與我們共同祈禱。在參與網絡彌撒後,如想領聖體,可於上午11點15分至中午12點,到聖雅各伯堂樓上聖堂恭領。

We recommend those 65 and older and anyone with underlying health conditions to stay home at this time, and to continue to attend Masses online praying in communion with us.

為你的堂區 - 現在90天 (90 Days Now - For Your Parish)

在此非常時期,信德提醒我們並不孤單,一同並肩去應付這個挑戰。雖然公開彌撒暫停,我們每日繼續為你及至愛的健康祈禱。

一位教友設計了方法,在此疫情危機,來協助堂區的經費。

如果能力許可,對堂區每天認捐一個數量連續90天。目標是彌補目前每主日收不到的奉獻,共度難關。如果你願意參加,請到以下波士頓總教區的網址連結,手續簡便。

https://bcatholic.sites.bostoncatholic.org/90DaysYourParish

我們明白很多人經濟拮据不能參與,請你為此目標代禱,同舟共濟。

若你能捐助,多謝你的慷慨。

90-DAYS NOW – FOR YOUR PARISH

It is at times like these our faith reminds us that we are never truly alone, even as we face unprecedented challenges as a parish community. Though we are not able to join together in the celebration of the Eucharist, we continue daily to pray for the health of you and your loved ones.

I am reaching out to you about an effort created by a member of the laity with concern for our parishes during this time of crisis. It is a special, 90-day campaign that will provide offertory support directly to the parish.

This special initiative asks, if possible, for parishioners to rally around their parish by making a special daily offertory commitment for the next 90 days. This effort is intended to supplement weekly offertory gifts, given the challenges of the current crisis. Should you choose to join in this effort, the Archdiocese has created an easy-to-use link to donate.

The link is available by clicking this link: https://bcatholic.sites.bostoncatholic.org/90DaysYourParish

We are incredibly moved by this effort and forward this information for your consideration.

We understand many of you may not be able to contribute to this special offertory collection given the economic impact this pandemic has had on your personal finances. We remain extremely grateful for your prayers of support for our parish family.
