My Dear Fellow Parishioners,   

      A sincere and warm welcome to all those who are with us at Mass this weekend. I encourage those desiring to attend, to call the phone number provided and reserve space at the Mass of your choice. Also, the weekend schedule will be temporarily altered to: Saturday Vigil at 5 p.m. and Sunday at 8:00 and 10:00 a.m. This schedule will allow us to sanitize the church between Masses. Remember, only a total of 65 people are allowed to attend each Mass at this time. In addition, we will continue to offer Sunday Mass on Facebook and YouTube. The Archbishop has stressed that if anyone still feels uneasy about attendance, the obligation is dispensed until September 6th. Daily Mass is offered Monday through Saturday at 8 a.m. and Confessions are at their original time, Saturdays from 3:30 to 4:00 p.m.  PLEASE SEE THE COMPLETE LIST OF DIRECTIVES PRINTED IN THIS BULLETIN. Thanks for your  cooperation.

       This coming week, the church will be open daily, from 8:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.  Saturday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Sunday from  9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

       Our roof replacement will now take place this coming week (weather permitting). It was rescheduled from last week due to the weather.  We’ll have a final report by next weekend. Thanks for all your support and understanding during this most important project, and a special thank you to Paul Brennan and our Finance Committee for seeing this project through to fruition. 

    

     Our Annual Raffle this year will be an ALL CASH RAFFLE, 5 prizes in all, $1000, $500, $250, $150, $100. Tickets are being printed and will be mailed (2 books of ten tickets each, $2 per ticket) to parishioners homes. Drawing is set for Sunday, 9/13, 3 p.m.

         Thanks to all who support our parish monetarily and to those using E-Giving.  We now have 95 active accounts.  God bless you for your generosity!

       July 1st marked my one year anniversary as the Parochial Administrator of St. Michael. My heartfelt thanks to Fr. Joy, Karen Palange, our Finance and Parish Councils and all those who have helped and encouraged me during this first year. Please pray for me as I pray for all of you. May we see many more years of fruitful progress both spiritually and temporally in the church that we call home!

      If you have any questions/concerns, please don’t hesitate to call on me.
