In a first step toward resuming our normal business hours, beginning July 6, 2020 we will be staffing the parish office from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm each Monday, Tuesday and Thursday to personally accept your phone calls. In accordance with Archdiocesan and CDC protocols, however, we are unable to receive visitors into the parish office just yet. If you need to either pick something up or drop something off, please call ahead to arrange use of the building entryways for this purpose.

Please know of our love and gratitude as we celebrate the gift of Thanksgiving! You and your families and friends and all in our communities are held close in prayer as we continue to face the pandemic, the work for justice and peace, and the important efforts we make as we hold the poor in our hearts. Please watch this special video message from Fr. Tim, Fr. John and members of our parish staff. It includes this prayer, composed by Fr. John, which we share if you would like to use as you gather in this most unusual of years. God bless you!
Prayer for the Thanksgiving Holiday 2020
Loving and merciful God, we place ourselves in your presence as we gather to celebrate this Thanksgiving holiday.
In this most unusual of years in which we celebrate without the presence of many family, friends, and loved ones, we place our faith in the promise that you are with us always in the depths of our hearts and that we are connected in a mysterious, yet real way as the mystical Body of Christ.
Help us to acknowledge the suffering and the Crosses that have filled all of our lives in this past year. We hand over to you the pain that we or loved ones have experienced of death, illness, loneliness, fear, anger, despair, and doubt.
At the same time, help us to give thanks for the blessings we have received often in the smallest and most hidden of ways. We lift up to you our tired and hurting hearts, but hearts that are still grateful for the blessing of life, health, faith, family, friends, and the strength to persevere yet another day.
Watch over our health care workers, first responders, and those working on a cure or a vaccine for the coronavirus. Purify our land from every sin of abuse, racism, and injustice.
Grant wisdom and prudence to all of our civic and church leaders.
Bestow upon all of us the graces of peace, healing, forgiveness, and trust always in your providence.
Through the powerful intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, all the angels and saints, we make this prayer through Jesus’ name. Amen.
