A Message from Fr. Ryan Pruess, Pastor

March 25, 2020 - April 12, 2020

To the Parishioners of Holy Family, Our Risen Savior and Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parishes,

Yesterday, 3/24/2020, the clergy and staff members received a letter from Archbishop Listecki regarding the CoVID19/Virus. We'd like to share some of the highlights of that letter with you, our parishioners.

  • The suspension of public daily and Sunday Mass throughout the archdiocese and at our parishes continues to be in place. Priests may continue to celebrate Mass without a congregation. Our priests have been live-streaming Masses and the Stations of the Cross.
  • The distribution of Holy Communion is permitted only as Viaticum (meaning the Eucharist as given to a person near or in danger of death). Other practices of "private" distribution may not take place.
  • April 1 was designated as a day for 12 hours of the Sacrament of Reconciliation throughout the archdiocese. This is postponed. However, Confessions will be offered on Saturdays from 8-10 a.m. at Holy Family Church and from 3-5 p.m. at Sacred Heart Church.
  • Public celebrations for Holy Week, Holy Thursday and Good Friday are canceled in all archdiocesan parishes and our three parishes, as well. Those services will be live-streamed, if possible.
  • The baptisms of the Elect (RCIA candidates) and the receptions into full communion across the archdiocese are postponed until a later diocesan-wide common date.
  • The ViaCrucis at Holy Hill is cancelled.
  • The suspension of public celebrations of the Eucharist will continue for Easter Sunday. Holy Family will live-stream Easter Mass, if possible.
  • Confirmations and First Communions are now postponed until the health crisis has passed.
  • It is a challenge to celebrate funerals the way people might like. We will encourage families to delay the rituals if at all possible. If there is no way to delay, families of the deceased will need to be cautious about keeping the number of people to a minimum and maintaining the proper social distancing between people.

Please know that you all remain in my thoughts and prayers during these difficult times. 

With you, in Christ,
Fr. Ryan Pruess
Pastor
