More Covid-19. Stay safe.

A brief schedule for the weekend.

  • Saturday 8AM, Fr Charles will live stream Mass.
  • Sunday morning –
  • 8AM EF Mass in St. Jane
  • 10AM OF Mass in St. Jane
  • 12 Noon – St. Jane Church will open for the day
  • it will be disinfected prior to Masses, and prior to opening
  • Confessions 3-5 Tuesday
  • Confessions 3-5 Friday
  • Churches are being seen as vectors for the virus as it remains on hard surfaces and the idea is being floated about at large for sections to be cordoned off and sanitized hourly.
  • Please simply clean up as you go, and clean up before and after yourself. It’s not fair, but nothing in life is.
Palm Sunday

If you drop off Palms, please clean the bottom with a sturdy pair of scissors so that the palms can be handled simply. The Palms will be blessed and left in the church for everyone to pick up.

Masses during Holy Week and Easter will be live-streamed. Both Fr Charles and I don’t agree with the entire concept of live-streaming private Masses, but we do understand the need to do so. Remember though, a Homily isn’t given at a private Mass. We can give reflections outside of the Mass.

No Word yet on when this will let up.

Yes, almost everyone is wishing they could come in for a private Mass. And almost everyone is wanting us to do more in every way shape or form. We’ve decided to focus more on prayer, YouTube over Facebook, and not worrying about harsh critics. It’s possible to never stop, to simply die of fatigue and exhaustion. Who does that help?

A Wild Goose Chase

Could this possibly be any more horrible? It can only get better.

The Vlogging Chronicles

Why is this happening? It’s bad enough that things are terrible, but now we’re expected to be whizzes at live streaming, videoing, networking, teleconferencing, human resources, sanitation, public health, etc, out of the blue and on top of everything else we have to do, which isn’t unsubstantial.

Spiritually, it’s an amazing and incredible time. Everyone is trying to respond graciously.

Very educational. And I have to put together the bulletin tomorrow because they’re not printing them anymore. So I’d best call it a wrap.

I’m going to take a hot shower and steam open my sinuses. I want my voice back.
