It seems as if it wont be too long until we will be able to gather together again especially for the daily Masses since they are in number much smaller in attendance and fit the numbers required for gathering by the governor. We are awaiting at this point word from Bishop regarding the requirements for our diocese. We will give plenty of warning before we begin. The reason I say this is because several people called this weekend asking if we were open for Mass. We will continue as is until further notice.

Greetings and hope that you are all doing well:

This last Friday we entered into the beautiful month of May. It is of course the month dedicated to our Blessed Mother. We look to her these days for special guidance and encouragement as we face so many things that are happening in our world today.
