This is just a reminder now that we have re-opened our Parish, that all Announcements to be read after Mass must be submitted to the Parish Office by 2PM on Thursday of each week. Unless it is an emergency please do not hand write Announcements!
Any guest speaker wishing to be speak at the Masses is also requested to contact the Parish Office no later than Thursday at 2PM in order that you may be properly recognized during Announcements. This goes for Parish and Finance Councils, any ministries and any special events.
This is also a reminder that it is very important to keep noise in the Commons down to a minimum before Mass. Many parishioners and guests are already present in the Sanctuary in prayerful preparation for the Liturgy of the Word and Eucharist.
Last but not least, only those persons who will be participating in the Mass should gather in the Sacristy prior to Mass. This is an important time for Fr. Alex as he is either hearing confessions and/or mentally preparing for Mass. Unnecessary noise is a huge distraction.
These requests are nothing new but rather a reminder of "the way things were" before the pandemic. Many thanks for your cooperation.
