Dear Parishioners,

I want to thank our volunteers, and all those who have ventured out for public indoor Mass, for your attentiveness to our processes that have been put in place for our safety.

Our volunteers and ushers are doing a wonderful job, but we do need additional volunteers. If you are an usher, and feel that you can safely help check people in, or assist in seating those attending Mass, please contact Gene Cox to help (This email address is being protected from spambots.

Thanks to all who have helped us have limited public Mass again.  With that said, cases of COVID-19 continue to grow in Henderson County; and what is concerning to we who gather in a larger group for Mass, is that cases are growing among the population who are non-hospital, non-assisted living cases.  Where cases in our County were previously largely confined to those institutions, the virus is now spreading amongst the general population.

Therefore, we must redouble our efforts at safety. I ask that you continue to wear masks at Mass, and keep your social distance of six feet or more. Do not lose focus on these important steps, and especially when exiting Mass. We tend to let our guard down when Mass is over, as our natural tendency is to gather and visit, even as we line up to exit.

As a reminder, the wing sections of the church will exit first, row by row, through the door by which you entered.  Once the wings are emptied, the four main center sections will exit. All sections will exit starting with the back row (nearest the exit). Thank you so much for your continued vigilance.

As we liturgically celebrated the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary this past week, let us entrust ourselves to their most Sacred and Immaculate Hearts.

In Christ, through Mary,

Fr. Cook
