Mass Resumption

To prepare for the celebration of Mass. I would like to share some information and measures that we will be adopting:

  • First of all, remember that the Archbishop has given all of us dispensation from attending Mass during the pandemic.  Those of you over 65 years of age and those with health issues should be especially mindful of this and are advised not to attend any gatherings.  Let your discretion be your guide.

  • For your safety and for the well being of others, you will be required to wear a mask when attending services.  We have a limited supply of masks so please bring your own.

  • You should observe the recommended 6 foot separation of social distancing at all times.

  • There is a limit of 100 people per Mass, please call the parish office to reserve your seats or go to stmp.org and click the "SIGN UP" button.

  • Staff members, ushers and greeters will be on hand to assist with seat assignments.  Keep in mind that this will be a brand new experience for all of us so please be patient and help each other out.

  • The Mass will be short and sweet.   You will not hear any choir singing, but we will have piano playing.

  • Communion will be distributed after the final blessing. Hygiene is important. When receiving Holy Communion, please bring your personal hand sanitizer.  Keep in mind that we are still practicing 6’ social distancing.

  • When entering or exiting the campus please extend the 6 feet courtesy to everyone with the exception of family members.


Sincerely yours in Christ,

Rev. Father Stephen Okumu
Pastor

BISHOP DANIEL MUEGGENBORG'S REFLECTION
THIRTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

Our Scripture passage for this Sunday comes from the Gospel of Matthew 10:37–42. In this reading Jesus continues to instruct the Twelve about the obstacles they will inevitably encounter while on mission. In last week’s Gospel passage, we read of how Jesus cautioned them to not be intimidated. In this week’s passage, Jesus cautions them to not be unduly influenced or deterred by those closest to them in their families. We all know how effectively intimidation and influence can be used in our world to control the actions of others just as these methods were used in the world of Jesus and the early Church. Our Lord not only wants to caution the disciples to anticipate such influences, He also gives them instruction on how to persevere through those influences. Let’s study this passage in greater depth to see how it can encourage and enlighten our lives as disciples.
