From the Pastor: All Public Masses Cancelled

by cduesing

We are living through a very strange time. Not since 1918, with the Spanish Influenza, have we had a medical emergency on the level that we are seeing now. The Diocese of Covington has issued a statement that all public Masses are cancelled until further notice, due to the COVID-19 virus. This includes weddings and […]

Online Giving Is Convenient Option During COVID-19 Outbreak

by cduesing

COVID-19 is disrupting life as we know it in ways we never imagined, e.g,, the cancellation of public Masses. But the health and safety of our parish family is our number-1 priority. Closing churches also has other consequences, including a drop in weekly collections. This poses a challenge in meeting operating expenses, especially if the closure […]

As we are in the midst of the cold and flu season, and with the coronavirus (COVID-19) spreading throughout the world and the nation, it is important to take every possible precaution.

From the Pastor: The Harvest Is Rich, But the Laborers Are Few

by cduesing

In the Gospel today, Jesus appoints the “Seventy-Two” disciples other than the Twelve, whom he will send out on mission. They are to go to the various towns and villages and begin telling the residents about Jesus and getting them stirred up to meet him when he arrives. So often we think of the Twelve […]

From the Pastor: The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi)

by cduesing

Today the Church celebrates the doctrine that, perhaps more than any other, defines us as Catholics within the Christian community.
