SHEPHERD’S PERSEPECTIVE — June 28, 2020
This past week, I received from the Pastoral Centre the 36th MEMORANDUM of INSTRUCTIONS pertaining to the celebration of the Holy Mass and the celebration of the Sacraments in light of now ‘living under the directions’ of STAGE II Covid-19 Government Inspired Regulations.
What does this mean for St. Patrick’s? At this time, it means the following: between now and January of 2021, St. Patrick’s will be offering the Holy Mass on weekends at the following times:
5:30 PM Saturday (to be changed back to 5:00 pm on July 25th)
7:00 PM Saturday (will begin on Saturday July 25th)
9:00 AM Sunday
10:45 AM Sunday
12:30 PM Sunday
Saturday mornings and Sunday afternoons will be reserved between the months of September through to January for catching up with all of our Sacramental Celebrations that we were unable to partake in due to the COVID outbreak. Over the summer months, we will be creating a Master Calendar Plan of Celebrations that will serve to assist us in catching up with well over 200 First Communion families and approximately 180 Confirmation Celebrations along with our RCIA Candidates and their Special Celebrations. Meanwhile, we will also be launching this year’s Sacramental Preparation at the same time. Please keep up with the weekly Shepherd’s Perspective for the latest news and updates.
I would like to take this opportunity to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU to Ms. Harriett Cariaga and ALL THE VOLUNTEERS / COORDINATORS that have stepped forward at St. Patrick’s to embrace new responsibilities that make it possible for our Lord’s flock to be nourished with the living body and blood of God’s resurrected son made Truly Present in the Holy Eucharist. Without your love and service to our Lord and His people — faithfully celebrating the Holy Mass would simply not be possible given all the Rules and Regulations that have come upon us.
As far as my recovery from the hip injury is going, I seem to have turned a corner this past week as I now find myself gaining and sustaining strength that lasts. Thank YOU so much for all of your prayers!! Now that I am finally able to measure sustainable progress on a weekly basis, I have scheduled my first weekday Mass for Tuesday, July 21st and my first weekend Mass will be Saturday, July 25th at 7:00 PM — a Most Solemn Holy Mass of Thanksgiving.
Lifting you all in prayer through the hands of Our Lady.
