My Dear Faithful,

Because of the circumstances of the current chastisement all Masses and activities at Our Lady Help of Christians chapel are suspended as of today.  Please remember that although the situation makes it impossible for you to attend Mass and that you are relieved of this obligation for the present we all still have the obligation to keep holy the Sabbath day. This we do by prayer, spiritual Communion, and spiritual reading, as well as activities proper to the Lord’s Day. I have included a link to a website with many, many good Catholic books that can be read online for free.


Furthermore please bear in mind that while we cannot have Masses at the chapel at the present we still have bills to pay. If the situation does not change before Easter, the faithful are asked to please continue to support the parish in this time of crisis by mailing their contributions to the address found at the end of this announcement. As always you are in my prayers and private Masses. Let us all do prayers and penance together to beg God to remove the scourge from us so that we may resume parish life as normal.

God Bless You! Mary Keep You!
