Good News for May 27th

Soon and very soon…June 7th

You will be able to join us for Mass in the Church starting June 7th with the 10am Mass. We will continue to Live Stream (as always). We will be distanced. No hand shaking, hugging or touching. No sharing of the Precious Blood by the congregation. It will be different. You will need to register for Mass (50 people). You will be able to sit on the lawn and listen to Mass is you feel more comfortable doing that at this time. We will continue to one Communion Service at 12:30pm as well, for those who are not yet comfortable being in the Church for a prolonged period of time. Our RESTORE Team met to further develop our plan and more information will be shared in the Friday email (want to join our 10am Mass or 5pm & 8am Mass Teams; contact Minta Brown) . Pray that we make good choices!

Our Church Family rejoices once again as a young disciple received our Lord for the first time. Congratulations Elize – may you know the joy of being nourished by the Lord all the days of your life. Are you hungering for the Body and Blood of the Lord? Join us for a Communion Service this Sunday and you too can Feast on the Holy Eucharist.
