July 19, 2020 - 16th Week of Ordinary Time

Dear Friends in Christ:

Happy Feast Day! THURSDAY is the Feast Day of our Patroness Saint Bridget of Sweden! Saint Bridget of Sweden, also written Saint Birgitta, was a mystic and saint. She was the foundress of the Bridgettines nuns and monks. According to Saint John Paul II, Saint Bridget of Sweden “was a master in accepting the Cross as a central experience of the faith, she was an exemplary disciple of the Church, professing complete Catholicism; she was a model of the contemplative and active life and a tireless apostle in the search for unity among Christians!” As we celebrate the feast day of our Patroness, let us implore her intercession as we continue to grow as disciples of the Lord as a family of faith under her patronage. Saint Bridget of Sweden pray for us! Happy Feast Day!

It has been wonderful seeing people coming back to Mass. It really has been like a homecoming. Remember we are NOT returning to a normal routine in any way, shape, or form. We are coming back to a “new normal.” Things look different. People are wearing masks, hand sanitizer greets us at the doors, pews are marked off as to where people can sit, there are no hymnals, and it all seems so foreign, and yet we are HOME!
