Reflections with Fr. Mark
Dear Parishioners,

Today, we celebrate St. Ephrem of Syria, Deacon and Doctor of the Church.  St. Ephrem died in 373 during a plague, contracting the disease from the people whom he served.  While it is difficult for most people to derive beauty from suffering, St. Ephrem did.  

He was named Doctor of the Church because of his poetic theological writing.  He said, “We give glory to you, Lord, who raised up your cross to span the jaws of death like a bridge by which souls might pass from the region of the dead to the land of the living.”  

Let his inspiration become ours as we seek beauty today.


Fr. Mark

Attendance Reminders: Face coverings or masks are required during Mass. Church doors will open 30 minutes before Mass. Please plan to arrive early and line up safely while awaiting to be seated. Attendees MUST arrive before the doors are closed and locked at the beginning of mass out of respect for your fellow parishioners. Late arrivals will not be admitted.

People who are 65 or older, have a weakened immune system, or have a chronic medical condition are encouraged to stay home. If you are sick, you MUST remain at home. Virtual Mass options and a Communion Reception Line are offered (see below). Dispensation by the Archbishop for Sunday attendance has been extended indefinitely.

‘Drive-thru’ Communion Reception Line

For those wishing to continue to view the mass at home, we will have a “Drive-thru” Communion Reception Line at Noon on Sundays for the foreseeable future beginning Sunday, June 14.

We will only be out in the parking lot for this option for 20 minutes. Please arrive on time and begin a car line going south on Cloverly Avenue and into the Church parking lot. We will direct you from there. Please DO NOT park or get out of your car.

Please wear your face covering as we approach the car. We will distribute communion into your hand and then you may remove your mask and receive the Eucharist. Please drive off safely. God Bless.
