Chapter & Verse
Chapter & Verse
Moses called all the elders of Israel and said to them, “Go and procure lambs for you families and slaughter them as Passover victims. You shall observe this as a perpetual ordinance for yourselves and your descendants. When your children ask you, ‘What does this rite of yours mean?’ you shall reply, ‘This is the Passover sacrifice of the Lord, who passed over the houses of the Israelites in Egypt; when he struck down the Egyptians, he spared our houses.
Exodus 12:21, 24-27
Rescue me from my enemies, O my God; from my adversaries defend me. Rescue me from evildoers; from bloodthirsty men save me.
BISHOP-ELECT MCGOVERN TO BE ORDAINED
July 22 at the Cathedral of St. Peter in Belleville at 2:00 p.m.
Due to concern for the health and safety of the public in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, attendance at the ordination liturgy will be limited and social distancing protocols will be in place. The Diocese of Belleville is exploring options for broadcasting the liturgy. This will allow the faithful to prayerfully participate in the ordination in their homes.
Let us to pray for our Bishop-Elect Rev. Michael McGovern in this time leading up to his ordination as our new Bishop.
O God, eternal shepherd of the faithful, who tend your Church in countless ways and rule over her in love, grant, we pray, that Michael, your servant, whom you have set over your people, may preside in the place of Christ over the flock whose shepherd he is, and be faithful as a teacher of doctrine, a Priest of sacred worship and as one who serves them by governing. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
The Ministry Begins
There will be printed bulletin in plastic tote by office door for those who would like receive paper copy.

As you know from the letter that was mailed a few weeks ago, the Diocese of Belleville has sent guidelines for the reopening of church. A committee has been established (Deanna Erwin, Christopher & Rachel Hopfinger, Andrea Short, Richard & Kathy Wuebbels, and Father Ptak) and they have completed and read all training materials. They had their first meeting Tuesday, June 2, to plan and ready Church for Phase 1 (allows for parishes to reopen for Baptism, Reconciliation, Weddings and Funerals with a limit of 10 attendees excluding ministers).
Since their meeting, Diocese of Belleville has now released information today, that parishes may begin the celebration of the Eucharist this weekend, June 6-7, with limitations (see pamphlet below). Our Parish is not ready for this yet. We are in need of more volunteers and time to prepare Church, so everyone can safely attend. We do have a schedule for Reconciliation, Adoration, and Masses to begin. This all depends if we have enough people to volunteer to be greet/usher, set-up and cleaning. We are thinking we need 10 volunteers to cover each event. The lack of volunteers, will delay the reopening of our Parish. If you are high school age (parent permission) thru 65 without any health conditions and is willing and able to volunteer, please contact the office.
† Reconciliation - Friday, June 12 from 9:00 -10:00 a.m. and 6:00 - 7:00 p.m.
† Adoration - Friday, June 19 from 9:00-10:00 a.m.
† Mass - Saturday, June 27 at 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, June 28 at 8:30 a.m.
It is important to know that you MUST call the office, 618-648-2490, to reserve a time slot. You can only attend, if you have a time. If you leave a message, please leave your name and number and the office will get back with you.
