Guidelines for Attending Sunday Mass

Those who are vulnerable, including the elderly and those with chronic diseases, ought to remain home. Those who are sick or symptomatic must stay home. The dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass remains in effect, and live-streamed Masses will continue to be offered. At Saints. Peter & Paul Church, a maximum of 70 people can gather at each of our two Sunday Masses. Face masks are mandated. The parish will provide face masks for those who do not bring their own. Hand sanitizer will be available at the doors of the church. Maintain a 6 ft. radius of distance from all those who are not in the same household. For now, there will be no congregational singing nor choirs; no processions; no altar servers, or Eucharistic ministers. There will be no passing of the collection basket. A large basket will be placed in the middle of the center aisle for your offerings. Communion will be distributed at the very end of the Mass. It is preferable to receive holy communion in the hand. Be sure to lower your face mask just before you receive communion. Everyone is encouraged to stay briefly after Mass to welcome the Lord into their souls in prayerful thanksgiving. People should make sure to leave little by little, maintaining social distance.
 

Support Our Parish: Saints Peter & Paul!

Please do your part to bring our parish back to financial health by sending in your weekly donation. A collection basket will be placed in the church aisle at Sunday Mass.

Food Items Needed

Due to the enormous impact of COVID-19, local aid stations are in need of resources to help those in need. Not everyone has received stimulus checks or unemployment compensation, and as time goes on, the need will grow. You can drop off at the entrance to church non-perishable food items and baby items (diapers and wipes) for St. Vincent de Paul Place and Catholic Charities. Monetary gifts clearly marked for local charity should be placed in the collection basket or mailed to the parish office. Stay up to date on needed items by visiting St. Vincent de Paul Place web page.  Thanks!

Si no puedes asistir físicamente a la eucaristía dominical


Debido a la pandemia de Covid-19, la obligación canónica de asistir a la eucaristía dominical se suspende temporalmente. Sin embargo, la obligación de adorar al Señor el domingo permanece. Si no puede asistir a la eucaristía los domingos por motivos de salud, tómese un tiempo en casa para rezar. Haga una "hora santa" con el Señor. La eucaristía se puede ver el domingo por la mañana a las 10:30 a.m (En el mes de julio).
 

Guía para Asistir a la Eucaristía Dominical

Los que son vulnerables, incluidos los ancianos y las personas con enfermedades crónicas, deben permanecer en sus hogares. Los que están enfermos o sintomáticos deben quedarse en casa. La dispensa de la obligación de asistir a la eucaristía dominical sigue vigente y se seguirán ofreciendo la eicaristía en vivo. En la Iglesia de Santa María un máximo de 85 personas pueden reunirse en cada una de nuestras dos eucaristías dominicales. Las mascarillas son obligatorias. La parroquia proporcionará máscaras para aquellos que no traigan. El desinfectante de manos estará disponible en las puertas de la iglesia. Mantenga un radio de 6 pies de distancia de todos aquellos que no están en el mismo hogar. Por ahora, no habrá canto congregacional ni coros; sin procesiones; sin monaguillos, ni ministros eucarísticos. No se pasará la canasta de la colecta. Se colocará una canasta grande en el medio del pasillo central para sus ofrendas. La comunión se distribuirá al final de la eucaristía. Es preferible recibir la sagrada comunión en la mano. Asegúrense de bajar su mascarilla justo antes de recibir la comunión. Invitamos a todos a quedarse brevemente después de la Misa para recibir al Señor en sus almas en oración de acción de gracias. La gente debe asegurarse de irse poco a poco, manteniendo la distancia social.
 

Apoye Nuestra Parroquia Santa María

 Haga su parte para que nuestra parroquia recupere la salud financiera enviando su donación semanal. Se colocará una canasta en el pasillo de la iglesia en la misa dominical. Recuerde: no se pasará la canasta de la colecta banca por banca. Con la interrupción que estamos viviendo, la mejor manera de hacer su contribución es a través de contribuciones por internet. Visite nuestro sitio web del grupo parroquial para registrarse de forma rápida, fácil y segura.
 

¡Gracias por sus contribuciones la semana pasada!

Campaña Anual Católica (ACA)

Tal como lo hemos hecho en años pasados, nuestra carta y folleto de la Campaña Anual Católica se envió por correo en febrero. Un agradecimiento especial a todos los que han respondido. Debido a COVID-19, el Fin de semana tradicionalmente celebrado en marzo se pospuso, pero ahora tendrá lugar del 25 al 26 de julio de 2020, que es el próximo fin de semana. Mientras reflexionamos sobre nuestras muchas bendiciones durante estos tiempos difíciles, recuerde que Dios nos llama a cada uno de nosotros a ser generosos en pensamiento, palabra y acción. En este momento, le pedimos que, como miembros de una familia de fe, su muy necesario regalo / promesa sea enviado por correo o entregado a la parroquia el próximo fin de semana.
