Greetings from Fr. Mike on May 28th.

I hope you are safe and healthy. 

I share with you our parish’s plan for worship on the weekend of June 13-14th, the Feast of Corpus Christi.   

On Saturday, June 13th we will livestream the 5:30pm Vigil Mass as we have been doing over the past weeks.   

If I can attest that our parish has met all of the 19 criteria set forth by the Archdiocese, we are planning to have a 10:00am Mass on Sunday, June 14th.  With physical distancing being a requirement, up to 151 people (1/3 of our legal seating capacity), can attend this Mass.  All persons attending this 10:00am Mass MUST register online beforehand.  There will be a Flock Note announcement sent out next week to advise parishioners when and how to register to attend this Mass.  Additional information will be forthcoming for those who will be attending this Mass. 

Everyone, including myselfMUST wear a mask to attend this Mass to safeguard everyone’s health and safety.  There will be no singing at this mass.   

In accordance with national, state and local health directives, any person who is symptomatic or who has been exposed to the virus within 14 days should not enter the church.  Any person with a cough of any sort, or anyone who does not feel well should not come to church.  Those who are at risk because of an underlying health issue or who are 60 years of age or older are strongly encouraged, for their own health, to avoid the risk of attending public celebrations of the Church.  

 I share with you the following statement from Archbishop Lori. 

“Dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass and other Holy Days of Obligation remains in place during this present phase”. 

 State guidance from the Governor’s office encourages either taking temperatures at religious services or asking parishioners to do so at home.  We will have members of our parish Health Committee available outside of church to take our temperature before entering the church.  Those attending church must wear a facial covering, with the exception of children under the age of 2 years. 

Opportunities to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation will be offered on Tuesday, June 2nd for 9am – 11am and from 4pm to 6pm and on Thursday, June 4th from 9am to 11am and from 6pm to 8pm.  I will be parked in our parking lot, sitting in my white Honda Civic.  Please drive up carefully to my car and stay in your car. Please roll down your window.  After you have celebrated the sacrament, please drive carefully off our parking lot.  There will be a person in a vest directing vehicles.  Please follow this person’s directions.  I will be wearing a mask and I ask that you do the same. 

I am happy to announce we will have a Seminarian assigned to our parish this summer.  His name is Daniel Andrades.  Danny has just completed his 1st year of Theology at Mt St. Mary’s Seminary in Emmittsburg.  Danny will arrive here at St. Ignatius during the week of June 1st.   Please join me in welcoming Danny to St. Ignatius. 

Blessings, 

Fr. Mike
