Schedule for Holy Week and Easter Sunday

We have devised a way for the faithful to receive the Sacraments of Confession and Holy Communion during this most holy week of the year; a way which is in compliance with state and local directives during this difficult time. On Good Friday and Holy Saturday we will be hearing confessions at our Lady help of Christians between 1:00 and 3:00 PM. When you arrive at the church please follow the directions of the ushers who will be showing you where to park. They will also show you the way to the outdoor confessional, all the while maintaining the proper distancing. Please do not wait until the last minute to show up but we will be staying as long as there are confessions to be heard. On Easter Sunday we will be live streaming a Mass at 10:00 AM via the link on this website. Please do not expect to be admitted to the chapel for the Mass itself because that would result in a huge crowd. You may wish however to drive to the chapel and watch the streaming Mass in your car on your mobile device. At the end of the Mass, around 11 o’clock, Holy Communion will be distributed. Once again please follow the directions of the ushers. A couple or few people will be admitted at a time into the church to receive the Blessed Sacrament. Once people have received they can leave which will make room for more cars so that everybody doesn’t have to arrive at the same time. I will stay as long as there are communicants. If you have not mailed in your contributions to the parish you can bring them with you at that time and there will be a box in an obvious place to leave them in. Also if you come Friday or Saturday and would like to enroll people in the Easter novena they will be available as well. Please bear with us if things don’t go terribly smoothly this first time. We are still working out the bugs in the system. Be assured of our prayers during this holy time of the year and we ask for your continuing prayers as well.
