The Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord
My dear people of God,
As we continue to heed medical and government advice to help keep our parishioners safe from COVID-19, so many have expressed their sincere gratitude for our televised Mass on Sunday and the many parishes that are offering Masses, Way of the Cross, Adoration, prayers and guidance and other spiritual opportunities through the use of technology. This allows parishioners to be reminded that this medical emergency is occurring during the Season of Lent when we are called to devote ourselves to prayer, fasting and almsgiving.
There are a number of priests throughout the diocese streaming Masses on their church parish websites and/or Facebook pages. Below are links to some. (NOTE: This listing is being updated regularly. Please check back often for the latest information.)
