A Message from Father Nathan
My dearest people who are close to my heart!
CHURCH OPENING, Beginning Monday, June 15th.
Welcome back again to the church for our community worship.
It’s extremely scary that the number of people affected by the virus is on increase. But we have to deal with it and learn to live with it of course safeguarding ourselves from the virus and from fear. The State and the archdiocese making all the efforts possible to take good care of the people. May God bless them all.
Now, understanding the emotions of our people, we have a plan to celebrate the masses inside the church.
As the pastor, here I am trying to my maximum to keep you all safe and secure that you may all continue to enjoy good health. As we move inside the church, for our common good, I am forwarding below guidelines to be followed. It’s again for the good of the community. May I request you all to follow them. If there is a need, we will change them. It’s not a problem.
Please Stay Home if You Don’t Feel Well
If you are sick or if you are elderly or if your health is not the best, please remain at home. We will pray for you. We will continue to live stream Mass. May God bless you.

Praying a rosary has been a tradition in the Church for a long time. Praying the rosary is such a powerful means to reach Jesus. The rosary is the vehicle for Mary to intercede to her Son Jesus. It’s an extremely powerful weapon and Catholics need to hold it in their pocket at times.
44% of all Americans have received at least 1 dose of the COVID Vaccine. While India still struggles. We are blessed to Live in the USA!
Church tradition dedicates the month of May to the Blessed Virgin Mary. Ways to show devotion to Mary during the month of May.
April 18, 2021, Third Sunday of Easter. The majority of our parish has had a vaccine. It is time to move back to our regular mood of life.
At the Easter Vigil, the Exsultet is sung as Mass begins in darkness, illumined only by candles throughout the church. The Exsultet is a beautiful hymn of rejoicing in Christ’s triumph of sin and death.
