Respect Life

“All life has inestimable value even the weakest and most vulnerable, the sick, the old, the unborn and the poor, are masterpieces of God’s creation, made in his own image, destined to live forever, and deserving of the utmost reverence and respect.” Pope Francis

Live-Streaming Masses

We continue to livestream our weekend Masses. This is for the homebound and those unable to get to Church due to various infirmities or situations. But it is not an excuse for not coming to Church in person. Livestreaming means it is watched live. It isn’t there to be seen as a tv show while eating or doing other work. Our Church is sanitized after the Masses and cleaned regularly. Masks are worn by those who feel it necessary. So the best way to attend Mass is in person and to receive Holy Communion.
