March 8, 2020 - 2nd Sunday of Lent

Dear Friends in Christ:

Well the concern is growing. There isn’t a day that goes by that the Coronavirus is not a topic of conversation! Just this past week I received two emails and one phone call from parishioners asking if we, as a parish, are going to do anything as a precaution during this time at our Masses. On Tuesday the Pastoral Staff and I were emailing back and forth about things we could implement here at Saint Bridget of Sweden as precautionary measures and then later in the day we received an email from the Archbishop regarding precautionary measures he is implementing throughout the Archdiocese.

So beginning this weekend we will be implementing these measures as directed by the Archbishop:

1. The sign of peace should be exchanged without physical contact like hand-shaking; or else the call to exchange a sign of peace should simply be omitted.
