From Our Pastor...

On Fathers’ Day, we remember and honor dads, grandfathers, uncles, and all the men, living and deceased, who tirelessly and selflessly gave of themselves for their families with unconditional love. It is a good time to also recall the exemplary role-model and patron saint of fathers —— St. Joseph — foster father of Jesus, husband of Our Lady and patron of the Universal Church.

Saint Joseph experienced the same difficulties in life we all do, yet he lived an exemplary life and established an ideal that is well-worth emulating for all fathers who have come after him. Saint Joseph was a man of compassion and caring. He was a man possessed of unwavering faith in God. He was a man who loved and protected his family. As St. Matthew describes in his Gospel, Joseph was a “righteous man”. For Joseph, doing God’s will was paramount; God always came first! St. Joseph, pray for us!

On July 1, 2021, Archbishop Mitchell Rozanski will lift the dispensation to attend Sunday Mass for all the faithful in the Archdiocese of St. Louis — meaning that we will all be called to return to Holy Mass in-person each Sunday. (We understand that these are uncertain times for everyone, and we want all to feel safe returning to Mass. Those who are sick, homebound, immunocompromised and gravely concerned for their health are exempt from the obligation to attend Mass, which has always been the case in normal times.)

While we will continue to live stream our Masses that have been such a blessing for many during the pandemic, it is important to note that watching the Mass is not the same thing as being there in Church, and is not a proper substitute when one is able to attend.

In Church, Masks are optional for those who are FULLY VACCINATED. FOR THOSE WHO ARE NOT VACCINATED, it is necessary to wear a Mask for the entire Mass except to receive Holy Communion. The distribution of the Chalice of the Precious Blood during Holy Communion remains prohibited. The Sign of Peace is suspended until physical touch can be restored. We will continue to use ONLY EVERY OTHER PEW and Holy Communion will be brought to you in the pew by the Priest, Deacon, or Eucharistic Minister.

At this time, there will not be Holy Water in the fonts. Offerings for the Church and special collections are greatly appreciated and may be put in the collection boxes at the Church entrances. We do not have an Offertory procession at Mass for the time being. This is a rolling start for the return to normalcy. More changes will be added in the coming weeks. I thank you for your incredible patience, prayers, and support in these difficult times.
