Letter from Fr. Dolan

Mar 17, 2020

Dear Parishioners:

 

In order to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community, Archbishop Carlson has mandated the suspension of all public Masses in the Archdiocese of St. Louis, effective immediately. This means that there will be no public Masses in our parish beginning today, March 17. Pending updates and guidance from local and state government and health officials, we have preliminary plans to resume Masses beginning April 6. The Archbishop has extended the dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass through April 5.


Please take note of the following additional information:

  • Our Wednesday Stations of the Cross are also cancelled.
  • The Sacrament of Penance will continue to be available at the usual times: Saturday, 3:30 – 4:30 pm and Tuesday morning at 8:45 til all are heard.
  • We intend to continue Adoration this Wednesday. Please come spend time with our Eucharistic Lord. Regular adorers are asked to be faithful to their commitments or to find substitutes.
  • I will be available to administer the Anointing of the Sick to those who are seriously ill or in danger of death.
  • Funerals may be scheduled but must be limited to immediate family members only.
  • Masses intentions that have been scheduled during this time will be rescheduled at a later date.

 

Every day, I will be celebrating Mass “sine populo”, i.e., Mass without the people.  I will offer these Masses for all of you. I invite you to spiritually unite yourself with me through prayer. You may drop by church and make a private visit (our church will be open everyday from 7:15 AM until  6 PM for private visits and personal Stations of the Cross).  Watch Holy Mass on TV; EWTN airs the Mass every day (https://www.ewtn.com/). Make an Act of Spiritual Communion.

 

These are unprecedented times, but our Lord Jesus Christ is with us. May He bless your families, keep us all safe, and gather us soon again around His holy altar.

 

Our Lady of the Presentation, Pray for us….

 

Father Mark Dolan
