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 […]

From the Pastor: Notre Dame Cathedral

by cduesing

Because of Holy Week, we had to have our Easter bulletin to the printer early, so I did not get a chance to comment on the tragic fire at Notre Dame Cathedral. I know that those of you who are long-time members of Mother of God Church were remembering the fire here in 1986, as […]
