PUBLIC CELEBRATION of the MASS at St. Patrick
Our parish Covid-19 Task Force met on Tuesday, May 19, to discuss and plan on ways that we will be addressing the mandated and required protocols before public worship can resume. Face masks must be worn and social distancing of six feet must be adhered to by those signing up to reserve a place starting on Thursday, June 4th at 5:30 p.m. and then on Sunday, June 7 at 8:00 a.m., during this Phase II. Masses will continue on Thursday and Sunday for the Month of June.
MASKS ARE NEEDED as we begin to prepare for the public celebration of Mass, we are in need of masks. If you are able to donate any masks, or material to make masks, please drop them off at the Parish Hall.
In light of the Diocese’s current suspension of public Masses due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the fact that a majority of readers receive their copy of The Courier when attending Mass at their parish, the decision has been made to suspend physical publication of our diocesan newspaper until such time as parishioners are able to gather again for public worship. The Courier will remain available in its online format at www.dowr.org.
The weekly televised Mass will be station affiliates in the Rochester-Austin-Mason City market, as well as the Winona-La Crosse-Eau Claire market. The broadcast schedule is as follows:
The TV Mass can also be watched online anytime at www.dowr.org.
Under this difficult time we are all encountering, the decision was made to postpone the 2020 St. Patrick's Spring Fling from April 19th to Sunday, October 4, 2020. Keep your raffle tickets purchased, as we will conduct the raffle in October and all can enjoy a delicious breakfast, basket raffles, quilt raffle, children's games and a fantastic bake sale!! Keep us in mind to attend in October!!!
Children from age 3 to 6 hear and learn about the Gospel in a way that is understandable for them. All children at Mass are welcome to come forward before the Gospel is read and return after the homily. This is held at Sunday Mass throughout the year.
Generations of Faith is for all members and ages of the Parish. It is designed to educate our children and youth about the basics of our faith and allows adults to answer their questions about the Catholic faith, explain religious traditions and help them grow in their faith. It is held six times per year from September through March. Each session begins at 5:30 p.m.. with a potluck meal, followed by a program and is 2 hours in length. Session include "break away" time for the pre-school through grade school ages. No registration necessary.
Are you ready for our year on the Bible? Our theme for this season of Generations of Faith is The New Testament.
