A Note From Fr. Vince
Hi everybody! Crazy days are still happening. I’m sure you’ve never seen anything like this. It’s hard to keep in touch with work, school, and church. St. Augustin staff are still here every day. The 6 of us are staying busy keeping everything afloat. You would think things slow down because there are no public services, but all of us are engaged in ways we can keep in touch with you. President Roosevelt in the depression had 2 great quotes: “The only thing you have to fear, is fear itself!” But I also like the other one better: “Happy Days are Here Again!” Folks, lets hope we get to the second one ASAP!
Believe it our not, Holy Week is upon us. We will all hate missing getting palms, our Holy Thursday commitment to service, the Good Friday passion, veneration and communion, the Easter Vigil of initiation, and Easter Sunday.
Let me tell you what we are doing. We don’t have streaming capability, and I’m not sure that’s the best anyway. We will be taping services and posting them for you to watch at home: Facebook, our YouTube channel, and a link on our parish website.
I’ve also scaled back our capabilities to what we can handle. If you want to see all the Holy Week services in their entirety, you have a few parishes in the Metro and bigger Cathedrals who will do it all…..minus people.
