I pray that everyone is doing well and keeping safe. We are not through this yet. Please keep praying and stay close to Jesus. This will eventually pass and we can all worship together.
This Sunday at 11:30 Mass we will be having a baptism and confirmation for two who were in our RCIA class: Emily Clark and Brittany Sexton!
They’ve been waiting an extra-long time for this, so please keep them in your prayers as they make this very important step in their lives.
Sunday Mass will be lived streamed at 11:30 am!!!
Daily Masses (except Saturdays) will be lived streamed from Holy Spirit Parish / Newman Center at 12:10 pm!!!
We are making the effort to live-stream all weekend masses so someone sitting in the courtyard can follow the Mass
To access the live-streamed Masses:
-Go to YouTube and search Catholic Wildcats for our Catholic Wildcats YouTube Channel
-or use this link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZCNv6PnFvZbnTr6TpCEEUw
THANKS, GLEN for all your hard work streaming the Masses!!!
Remember to reserve seats for next weeks Masses if you choose to come.
Thanks for everyone’s patience and understanding.
The Bishop has stated that we can increase our capacity for Mass to 50% occupancy as long as social distancing is maintained. When we reconfigured our Church we had this increase in mind and set up for more than the 30% capacity. With social distancing, the capacity for Holy Spirit Parish is 143.
Just a couple of important reminders.
Remember wearing a mask is required to enter the building for Mass and the masks need to remain on during the entire Mass.
Again, thank you for your cooperation as we strive to keep everyone safe.
Don’t forget the courtyard option, we had several take advantage of that this weekend.
Remember, each weekend will require a new reservation to be made.
Please come as early as you can so we can get everyone seated and
know how many walk-ins we can bring in.
What to expect when returning to Mass
UK will be back in session a week earlier than they originally planned. The start date is August 17. We are starting to plan how things will look and function when school resumes.
Parishioner Rob Turner works for a great organization involved in feeding the poor called Mary’s Meals. Rob has spoken to the adult education program concerning the program.
Rob sent the following message concerning the premier:
Just wanted to let you know that we have an online “premier” of a new Mary’s Meals film called “Love Reaches Everywhere” tonight at 7pmET. It’s about 30 minutes long. It will be followed by a Q&A with Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow, our founder, and Leah Swindon, MMUSA’s Executive Director.
You can sign up to receive a link to the viewing here:
