We are re-opening!
Great news! The weekend of June 20/21 we re-open our Churches with 30% capacity and respecting physical distancing guidelines.
Masses will be the usual times:
Saturday, June 20 – 5:00 p.m. at Blessed Sacrament
Sunday, June 21 – 9:00 a.m. at Sacred Heart and 11:00 a.m. at Blessed Sacrament
Please read the recent guidelines for re-opening on the Diocesan website.
This weekend we celebrate the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ.
The Eucharist, as in any sacrament, reminds us God is known by this self-revelation and the openness to this by human-kind. Sacraments are all about God’s life with us – that life is immanent and transcendent, visible and invisible, earthly and heavenly. The Eucharist reminds us of God’s desire to be with us in Jesus. St. Thomas Aquinas tells us “a sacrament is a sign whereby people are made holy.”
At each Eucharist, we conclude by being sent – “go and proclaim the Gospel of the Lord.” This takes on added significance in this time of the pandemic – we miss the “Bread of Life” but we still have the “Word of God” which continues to nourish us at this time. Let us give thanks for the Word of God which we do hear each time we gather for Eucharist.
