Message from Father Elliott - June 28, 2020
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Well we did it! Last weekend was our first weekend of public masses and I am happy to say that everything went very smoothly. Of course, here and there are lessons to be learned and procedures to be streamlined but over all it went well. Looking to the next few weeks, we will slowly be opening masses to larger groups as well as restarting weekday masses. I am hopeful that by July 6th we will return to our daily Mass schedule as well as being open for private prayer. Please look to this column and the website for future updates.
On a very happy note, tomorrow is going to be a wonderful day for the Archdiocese and Saint Pascal. After much delay, Deacon Larry Basbas will be ordained a priest of Jesus Christ. Please pray for him and his classmates as they begin their ministry throughout the Archdiocese. Unfortunately because of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic the ordination cannot be attended by as many priests, deacons, and faithful as usual but all of us can accompany the ordinandi in prayer. This is always a wonderful celebration of the new priest and the parish he calls home. Congratulations to Father Larry and all his classmates!
