July 5, 2020 - 14th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Dear Friends in Christ:

WELCOME HOME…I would like to extend a warm welcome to everyone who is joining us for Mass this weekend. It is a great joy to welcome you HOME to your spiritual home for the celebration of Sunday Mass IN PERSON! Thank you for your amazing generosity and understanding as we waited for this day.

I am most grateful to you for your patience during these past few months. I have done my best to communicate with you in a timely manner as this reopening was approaching to ensure everyone was well aware of the precautions being made to ensure we return to a safe environment. Having said that, I know you also understand it will be a long time before we return to the “normal” routines we knew before COVID-19.

Since there are regulations by the State on the number that can gather in public buildings we are still asking for your patience and cooperation. We will certainly NEED your cooperation in signing-up, or making a reservation if you would like to think of it in that regard, for you and your family members in advance.

Masses will be limited to 100 persons as of the time of this writing. One MUST sign-up to attend the Mass using the SignUp Genius found on our parish website at If you do not use a computer please contact the parish office to sign-up. The process has worked out fine for weekday Masses but it will be ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY that the Signup Genius be used for weekend Masses since the numbers will be that much greater. If we all do our part to register ahead of time it will work out just fine.

Great care and attention went into the details in preparing for this reopening. I am so grateful to the Saint Bridget of Sweden Pastoral Council who has really taken the lead in the organization for this moment, and in soliciting enough volunteers to ensure all are welcomed, precautions are followed, and the church is able to be sanitized after each Mass. This was a large undertaking but they did it with great enthusiasm and that enthusiasm is spreading as more and more come back to their spiritual home.
