Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Plans are underway for celebrating the rituals of Holy Week in a way that their meaning shines through, even though the execution will be different. Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday will be livestreamed. Thank you, Bobby Pantuso, for generously sharing your time and talent with the community in doing this.
One change we will experiment with during Holy Week and Easter is to have two Eucharistic Ministers, one on each side. Communicants will still come up single file, social distancing, so it should be just as safe. If it works well and helps communion move along better, we will continue it afterwards.
Given the updates I include at the beginning of my bulletin letters and our ability to place updates in the weekly e-mail that is sent out on Sunday, I will discontinue these updates, the last one being on March 31st, the Wednesday of Holy Week.
Have a good week and stay safe.
