Sobering News for Holy Week and Easter
Our Lady of Sorrows, Pray For Us

What Now After Governor's Directives?

  • Weekday adoration hours will continue at 9:00 AM and 6:00 PM. There have been only a few people in church at one time. Remember to practice safe social distancing and proper hand/face hygiene. 
  • The church remains open for prayer weekdays 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM
  • After this weekend, I will have a better idea if the weekend adoration hours should be changed.
  • All bathrooms in the church are closed. (We will need to release the cleaning service to save money until the viral restrictions are lifted.) We'll continue to sanitize door handles and leave them open when possible. 
  • I’m trying to understand the new directives put out by Catholic cemeteries for Christian burials and await some clarification. Funeral directors will have the most direct knowledge of the changes required by the governor’s directive of 3/22. The bishop has asked us not to hold funeral masses or other funeral services in the church.
  • I pray daily mass for your intentions. To have live steaming set up was too expensive at the present time. I may tinker with the setup we had in the old chapel to see if it can be connected, although I presume the equipment is outdated by now.
