 Even thCoensFrFrankCoensW450Pough we do not have Mass at church,  you are still expected to continue your regular prayer life. We are still obligated to make the Lord's Day holy.  You may wish to gather as family (or with friends) on Sundays for an hour of Scripture, prayer and reflection.  Mass can be viewed on EWTN.  The daily Mass Scriptures can be found at www.USCCB.org. Click on “Bible” and scroll to “Today’s Reading.” You are encouraged to maintain Lent as a holy season with continued prayer, fasting and almsgiving. And, of course, include in your prayer those who have already contracted the COVID-19 disease as well as all of us for whom these adjustments to our lifestyle are a hardship. Pray, also, for a speedy end to this crisis.


PALM SUNDAY - I did bless palms (in a private ceremony).  However, we cannot distribute the palms until we are able to gather again for Mass.

Please check this website or our Facebook page regularly to keep up with what is happening. 

Fr. Frank Coens, OFM
