The Diocese has approved choir practices, as long as the singers are masked and
socially distanced. We are looking for some strong voices to join the choir.
If you have friends and family who are singers, please let Ralph know.
We will be happy to give them a call.
NO PRACTICE THIS WEEK as we have MASS
Do you ever feel as if you don't know what's going on at church?
According to our statistics about 48-51% of people we send the Sanctus Bell and the Lectionary to open them each week.
HELP US BOOST OUR NUMBERS!
Have you been watching St. Bride's on the livestream?
We can get statistics on where people are watching from.
People are watching our live-streamed Masses from all over the world.
We can figure out who some of our FANS are but there are many we are surprised by.
Read next week to find out which countries we are popular in.

St. Bride's is looking for some additional Ushers.
Current responsibilities will be assisting attendees during the filming of Mass, and ensuring that the participants are socially distant. Ushers will also be responsible for pushing the button on an I-phone (provided) to begin recording the Mass, and stopping the recording following the Mass.
Please see or call Mary Lovell if you are interested.
