From the Pastor’s Desk – Distributing the Precious Blood to the Faithful

The Covid 19 pandemic crisis has diminished to the point where extreme measures of caution are no longer required. In light of this, I believe that it is time to offer Holy Communion under both species (the Hosts and the Cup of Precious Blood) to the congregation at all Masses, beginning with the Feast of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi). This feast falls the weekend of June 10/11, which will allow about six weeks for planning, recruitment, and training (and retraining) of extraordinary ministers of the Eucharist. This will take a renewed commitment on the part of parishioners, to do this ministry faithfully. Please consider volunteering to prepare for and perform this ministry. More information to come.
