Letter From the Pastor

                                                                                                                         June 8, 2020

Dear Parishioners:

Welcome back to Church! You have been missed! Public Masses will begin on the Feast of Corpus Christi, Sunday, June 14 th . Because of the need to sanitize our churches after each liturgy, we will have to limit the number of Masses we offer. The schedule of Masses at our three churches in the Bay View and Hunter’s Point will therefore be as follows:

 

All Hallows

Saturdays at 6:30 pm in Spanish [beginning June 20th]

Sundays at 8:30 am in English [beginning June 14th]

 

Our Lady of Lourdes

Sundays at 10:30 am in English [beginning June 14 th]

 

St. Paul of the Shipwreck

Sundays at 8:30 am in Spanish [beginning June 14th]

Sunday at 10:45 am in English [beginning June 14th]

 

​Unfortunately, we cannot have Church the way we have normally been accustomed to having it. Guidelines from the Archbishop and the Mayor dictate that some things have to be done differently. Here is what is needed:

​First of all, everyone must wear a mask and sanitize their hands upon entering the Church. We will be using only one door for entrance; and hospitality ministers will be at the entrance to ensure that people are following the guidelines. You will find baskets for donations as you

enter the Church. Please make your donation before the liturgy begins; and I beg you to be as generous as you possibly can.

 

​Please note that the elderly and those with pre-existing health conditions should stay at home. They are dispensed from physically being present at Mass. For those not attending in person, Masses will continue to be streamed on the Internet. Please go to your parish web site for the exact link.

When you enter the church, you will notice that every other pew has been blocked off. And even in the pews being used, parishioners must sit six feet apart—unless they live in the same household. No missalettes or hymnals will be available for common usage.

There will be no choirs, with singing to be led by one sole cantor accompanied by a musician. There will be no hand holding at the Our Father nor any physical greeting at the Sign of Peace. Nor will there be any congregational singing, as health officials have determined that singing spreads the Coronavirus much more quickly and intensely than normal speech.

 

Additionally, in order to keep people in an enclosed environment for as short a period as possible, liturgies will be limited to 40 minutes maximum. We have been instructed to distribute Communion at the very end of Mass. When asked to do so, you may come up to receive the Host, making sure that each person stays six feet apart from the individual ahead of him or her. Ushers will direct parishioners to Communion pew-by-pew.

 

Any parishioners wearing gloves are asked to remove them for the reception of the Sacrament. The priest or eucharistic minister will be wearing a mask and will have sanitized their hands prior to distribution of the Host. Communion will be offered in the hands only—without any touching. Following the reception of Communion, you are requested to leave the Church, as the Mass will already have ended.

 

I apologize for having to give you so many instructions. However, as it is necessary at this time for the safety of all of us. I know you join me in praying for a vaccine that will allow us to return to a more normal liturgical celebration.

 

Yours in Christ,

 

Father Dan

HOLY VIRGIN OF GUADALUPE

Holy Virgin of Guadalupe Queen of the Angels and Mother of the Americas.
We fly to you today as your beloved children. We ask you to intercede for us with your Son, as you did at the wedding in Cana. 

Pray for us, loving Mother,
and gain for our nation and world, and for all our families and loved ones, the protection of your holy angels, that we may be spared the worst of this illness. 

For those already afflicted,
we ask you to obtain the grace of healing and deliverance.
Hear the cries of those who are vulnerable and fearful, wipe away their tears and help them to trust. 

In this time of trial and testing, teach all of us in the Church to love one another and to be patient and kind. Help us to bring the peace of Jesus to our land and to our hearts. 

We come to you with confidence,
knowing that you truly are our compassionate mother, health of the sick and cause of our joy. Shelter us under the mantle of your protection, keep us in the embrace of your arms,
help us always to know the love of your Son, Jesus. Amen.
