~Mass Invitations have been Issued ~
for Masses on June 6th/7th
Emails were issued and phone calls were made this week on Wednesday, June 3rd.
If you did not receive an email or phone call, we ask that you be patient and wait to be asked to join our parish Masses. You will be contacted the Wednesday prior to the weekend. We will continue to rotate through our very large list of households who filled out our mini congregation questionnaire. At this time, we are inviting 25 families per Mass so that we can properly distance every household. Once you attend Mass, we ask that you wait until you are contacted again before returning. We need to cycle through all responders before we invite you back for a 2nd time. We are continually grateful for your patience and understanding. Please feel free to call us at the Parish Office weekdays from 9 am to 2 pm or email us at [email protected] if you have any questions.
Please understand that the obligation to attend Mass is still lifted. If you are not comfortable returning to Mass at this time, there is no obligation to do so. We will continue to offer a recorded Mass on our website on Sunday mornings.
Please fill out this form if you would like to participate in a "Mini Congregation" when we re-open our churches.
Because the attendance requirement is limited; parishioners can plan on attending Mass on a rotating basis every few weeks. This rotation is the only way we can fit all parishioners, who choose to join us, into the church building while also adhering to the physical distance requirements that are meant to keep us safe. To build the rotation schedule for Mass attendance, we will need to gather some information from those families who choose to attend Mass. Information we will need includes: your name, Mass time you prefer to attend, number of family members who will be attending with you and your contact information (we prefer your email address and would appreciate a phone number too).
While the Masses might not be full, it is a beginning to our return to normal. Of course, our plans/policy will change if we receive other directives from the Bishops of Ohio. Please continue to stay tuned to this website for further and up to date information. We are eager to welcome parishioners back into our beautiful church building, but do have your safety and concern in mind.
Please fill out this form if you would like to participate in a "Mini Congregation" when we begin to re-open our churches.

**UPDATED - May 8, 2020**
The Catholic Conference of Ohio, comprised of Catholic bishops throughout the state, is supporting Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine’s April 27 plan to begin phasing in a planned reopening of the state, even as his executive stay-at-home order -- announced in March as the coronavirus health crisis worsened -- remains in place. The plan calls for a gradual return to work and daily activities.
Out of deep concern for the common good as well as the physical and spiritual well-being of all the people of Ohio, the bishops’ conference once again said it will cooperate with the governor and to support and abide by the multi-phased approach to returning to work and eventual public gathering in large groups.
As a result, the bishops extended the temporary suspension of all publicly celebrated Masses/liturgies until May 29, with the hope of publicly celebrating together the solemnity of Pentecost on the weekend of May 30-31.
