    FROM BISHOP WACK

    What to Expect: Resuming the Celebration of Mass with a Congregation Present
    Reopening the doors of our churches will take careful thought, understanding and cooperation.

    The specific details of when and how public Mass will resume have yet to be fully determined, but here are five components of this next phase that all should be prepared for.

    1. A general dispensation from the Sunday obligation will remain. Many people, especially those who are at risk of possible infection or illness, and those who care for them, are strongly encouraged to stay home and participate in  live streamed Masses, which will continue. This also means that one can come to church for Mass on any day of the week (not just Sunday). This will help to give people more of a chance to celebrate Mass in person at least once a week.

     2. Attendance will be limited. Some restrictions will remain on the capacity of large gatherings, so we are working with parishes to determine a fair way to cap attendance for Masses. It is very important for everyone to be registered with their parish in order to receive communication about this next phase. Make sure that you are in the loop to receive updates about sign-up systems, assigned days, how many people can attend a given Mass and who those people may be, etc. Unfortunately, during this next phase, no one should expect to be able to attend Mass with regularity.

    3. Social Distancing will be practiced. Expect your parish to have pews/rows that are roped off. Families will be asked to maintain 6 feet of separation from other families. Be prepared to wear a mask to Mass to guard against the potential spread of the virus.

    4. Liturgical changes will be in place. Extra precautions will be taken, such as suspending the distribution of the Precious Blood and strongly recommending receiving the Host only on the hand.

    5. Anyone who attends public Mass will still be at risk. Even with the best health practices and strict social distancing, anyone who enters a public space should be aware of the risk. Our churches will be cleaned thoroughly, but the risk of contracting COVID-19 remains.

    Finally, let us all seek progress and not perfection. In this next phase, we will certainly meet some challenges and frustrations. Even after this next phase begins, your family may not be able to attend Mass for several weeks. Sign-up systems and parish communication may encounter difficulties, and some attendance strategies may not go according to plan.

    It is encouraging to see COVID-19 numbers flatten and decrease. However, for the protection of our diocese and local communities, we do not want to contribute to a rebound effect that would push normalized Mass attendance even further into the future. If we all work together, we can ease back into this, incrementally adding more people and options at Mass.

    Thank you for your patience through all of this. Please continue to pray for our diocese, our parishes and schools and our local communities as we navigate this next leg of the journey.

    The CDC Website, https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/index.html,
    provides extensive information about COVID-19 and the response of health professionals around the world.
     Public awareness of the symptoms and how to report suspected cases is essential in mitigating the spread of the virus. COVID-19 can cause mild symptoms in some people but severe illness and death for others.

     
    Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure and include:
    • Fever
    • Cough
    • Shortness of breath

    The CDC alert directs people to call their healthcare professional if they develop symptoms, and have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19, or if they have recently traveled from an area with widespread or ongoing community spread of COVID-19. Check cdc.gov for a list of areas where the virus is widespread.

    Patron of contagious illnesses

    O Blessed Saint Roch,
    Patron of the sick,
    Have pity on those
    Who lie upon a bed of suffering.

    Your power was so great
    When you were in this world,
    That by the sign of the Cross,
    Many were healed of their diseases.

    Now that you are in heaven,
    Your power is not less.
    Offer, then, to God
    Our sighs and tears
    And obtain for us that health we seek
    Through Christ our Lord.

    Amen.

    (Repeat the following 3 times)

    Saint Roch, pray for us,
    That we may be preserved
    From all diseases of body and soul.

  • WHAT IS SPIRITUAL COMMUNION

    How to make a Spiritual Communion when Mass is banned because of ...

    Spiritual Communion is the practice of desiring union with Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist. It is used primarily by individuals who cannot receive holy Communion, such as the ill, the divorced and remarried, and those who have not yet been received into full communion with the Church. St. Thomas Aquinas described it as “an ardent desire to receive Jesus in the most holy sacrament and lovingly embrace him” at a time or in circumstances when we cannot receive him in sacramental Communion.


    My Jesus,
    I believe that you are
    present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
    I love you above all things, and I desire
    to receive you into my soul.
    Since I cannot at this moment
    receive you sacramentally,
    come at least spiritually
    into my heart. I embrace you
    as if you were already there and
    unite myself wholly to you.
    Never permit me to be
    separated from you. Amen.

  • CATHOLIC SHARING APPEAL 2020

     CATHOLIC SHARING APPEAL 2020
    Total Pledge Goal: $35,689.89
    Number of Families Pledged: 114** Number of Parish Families: 295

    **Please note that we still have not met our goal.. Out of 295 families, only 114 families are participating in the
    Catholic Sharing Appeal.
    To be considered an active parishioner one must be registered, participate regularly in Mass, give to offertory and participate in Catholic Sharing Appeal.
    If you need help with your pledge, please contact the Parish Office
    or pick up a pledge card
    in the Narthex.


    The Catholic Sharing Appeal (CSA) is a wonderful success story.  It is the story about the Church here in Northwest Florida and the Big Bend, a story in which each and every one of us has a part to play.  It is a local story of how the people of God have built this Church up to where it is now.

    The Catholic Sharing Appeal was instituted when the Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee was formed in 1975.  Established without many reserves of its own, the diocese and parishes relied upon this vital funding source to carry on essential operations to survive as a local Church.  Today, CSA continues to be used to allocate funds at the diocesan level for expenses that extend past the parish for regional responsibilities, while parishes retain funds received in excess of goal for capital projects and programs within their parish.

    By giving funds through CSA, the people of God assist their bishop and pastor in carrying out the three-fold mission of the Church: teaching, serving and worshipping.  Since accomplishment of the Church's mission is of foremost importance, CSA affords parishioners a special opportunity to fulfill their baptismal call to discipleship.

    CSA specifically funds programs, services and functions that are coordinated from the Pastoral Center and are extensions of the Office of Bishop.  The administrative divisions of the Church of Pensacola-Tallahassee include the Bishop, Vicar General, Chancellor, as well as Secretariats for Communications, Financial Administration, Special Ministries, Social Concerns, Education and Apostolates.   Some of these ministries attend to needs beyond the scope of individual parishes and some exist for the sole purpose of assisting parishes in their mission to teach, evangelize and provide good liturgical experiences.

    CSA sets aside a time which offers us an opportunity to renew (rededicate) ourselves to stewardship through involvement in our parish and diocesan communities. Annually, CSA provides time for parishes to ask parishioners to make a pledge which helps meet the needs of the broader Church community.
