Private Prayer and Distribution of Holy Communion

What challenging times we are living through. Many individuals are seeing fruits of an increase of time available to nourish our relationships, and slower, richer time with the Lord in prayer. However, we are acutely aware as well that some of our parishioners are missing those quiet moments alone in the sanctuary to pray. Many also, for health reasons, are still not comfortable attending Mass, but are missing Holy Communion.  In order to meet both spiritual needs, our churches will be open for private prayer for an hour each week, beginning Monday, August 10, at the following times:

2:00pm on Mondays at St. Paul

2:00pm on Fridays at St. John

(Masks are required and social distancing protocol will be strictly observed.)

At the conclusion of the hour, Holy Communion will be distributed on the steps of the church at 3:00pm, particularly for those who are not yet able to come inside or able to gather in large groups.
