This Sunday’s Mass (2-28-21)
SOMETHING FOR LENT
As we prepare for the season of Lent, the current pandemic and the rising number of infections from the corona virus make it too risky for us to consider having a Parish Lenten mission as we have done in the past. The Diocese of Rockville Centre has provided for us a way to pray and reflect “online” in order to enter more fully into the experience of these forty days that lead us to Easter.
The nationally known and dynamic evangelizer Chris Stefanick and his team at Real Life Catholic have generously offered us resources for Lenten evangelization in the time of Covid. This simple initiative will help us feel connected to our parish family and our diocese, and to encourage our people to reach out to one another.
You may have heard of The Search, a highly produced summary of the Kerygma. Chris Stefanick, writer and host of the The Search, is going to host a live show with a different bishop each week of Lent (including Bishop +Barres on 3/31/2021) that focuses on the joy of the Gospel message.
By a special arrangement with Catholic Faith Network, the episodes will also be available by broadcast on CFNTV.
God willing, this great program will help folks deepen their faith during the pandemic and draw them back into in-person participation in our parishes and programs.
E-mail communications and resources will appear regularly during Lent on our parish website. Look for the schedule of communications on our parish website. We will be sharing the materials with you as we get closer to the season of Lent, and as we receive them from the Diocese.
We hope this will enrich our experience of Lent as a time of renewing our faith and our relationship with God and the community of the Church.

Video Masses will continue to be offered for the foreseeable future while the church will be open for you to come to Mass. Each weekend Masses will take place on Saturday at 5:00 PM, and on Sunday at 8:00 AM, 10:00 AM, and 12:00 noon. The weekend schedule will continue to be evaluated to allow for everyone to be admitted to Mass.
