Dear Parish Family,
EXCELLENT NEWS! All the priests, with the exception of Fr. James, tested negative for COVID-19. We will be able to resume our sacramental duties immediately. This is as great a relief for us as I’m sure it is for you. We will simply exercise extra caution for the time being (i.e. wearing a mask while distributing Communion).
Fr. James continues to rest and recuperate. He is experiencing the normal, flu-like symptoms of the disease, but does not have any respiratory problems or other serious issues (praise God!).
We are very grateful for all your prayers and support, and for your encouraging replies to the earlier Flocknote.
Please continue to offer prayers for Fr. James, and to thank God for his protecting help.
