Notice: During this cold and flu season all parishioners are reminded to use common good sense.
Out of an abundance of caution, those who are ill should stay home. Those who have weak or compromised immune systems (i.e., the elderly, the infirmed, infants and young children) should consider avoiding large gatherings, in this flu season, this means their obligation to attend Mass is lifted by the Bishop.
We pray for the health and recovery of all who are ill and not with us today. We encourage those who are home to join the community by praying the Sunday Scriptures, using the readings located at www.diojeffcity.org and perhaps praying the Rosary or the Divine Chaplet.
- The bishop has dispensed all the Catholics age 60 or older in the Diocese of Jefferson City from the obligation of Sunday Mass until further notice. This is in addition to those already dispensed due to illness or a compromised immune system. As we are unable to attend Mass Parishioners they can send their contributions by mail and attend Mass online.
- Try to maintain a social distance of at least 6 feet while talking to me and also in the confessional.
- The weekday Mass will be moved to the main church to allow for more spacing.
