If you have a medical emergency requiring Last Rites, please call the parish rectory at 304-229-5994.
Weekend Mass Schedule
Masses are being celebrated in the church (rather than the Fellowship Hall). Masks will be required for all (3 and up).
Please continue to bring in donations of Clorox (Bleach free) wipes! When we run out of wipes, Saturday evening Masses will have to be moved back to the Fellowship Hall.
Volunteers are needed to help with cleaning the church after all Masses! Please call the church office between 9 AM and 4 PM, Monday through Thursday to let us know if you will be volunteering.
Note From Fr. Alfred
I apologise for the audio-visual glitch during our Livesteam Mass today. I understand your frustatrations and thank you for patient understanding. On a happier note, in answer to my clarion call last Sunday for donations towards the purchase and installation of a professional livestreaming equipments (like the ones our neighboring parishes: St. James and St. Joe parishes, have) we have received some donations from some parishioners and organization: (a) a family, who wish to remain anonymous, gave us $11,000; (b) another family donated $500 and our Knights of Columbus donated $300 towards our livestreaming equipment project. Don't forget I mentioned last week that a parishioner had donated $2000 a few months ago for this project. Our parish deeply treasures and appreciates the benevolence and generosity of our donors and sponsors for this livestreaming project and prays God's blessings on our them and their families. I will be contacting the audio-visual tech company to begin the process of purchasing and installing the livestreaming equipment. My prayer and hope is that we will be able to get this project finished before our weekend liturgies this week. However, I crave your indulgence and patient understanding if we are not able to finish the project this week. The light is at the end of the tunnel for us to achieve what we have been longing for all these months - having our own parish professional livingsteaming equipment. We are almost there; hang in there! Thanks again for your prayerful support and patient understanding throughout this trying time. Be assured of my thoughts and prayers.
Remain blessed - Fr. Alfred Obiudu
