Message from the Bishop of Columbus

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

I write to you again to speak about the many challenges we all face in light of the growing Coronavirus pandemic, which is so significantly impacting every facet of our daily lives.  As you already know, the bishops of Ohio earlier this week decided to suspend the public celebration of Mass in every diocese of the state, and dispensed to the faithful from their obligation to attend Mass at least through Easter Sunday. 

I cannot begin to tell you how difficult and painful this decision was, especially during the Lenten season. But, after consultation with our Governor and s everal health and medical officials, and faced with the stark realities regarding the spread of this virus, it became apparent that this dramatic step was critical to making sure we are doing all we can to help curtail the spread of this virus and keep our communities healthy.  This extreme measure is a stark reminder of the necessity for all of us to heed the warnings of health and government officials to stay at home.

There are many parts of the "My Parish App " that are awesome tools. The daily readings, News, Prayers, Our Parish Bulletin, and Homilies are all buttons to provide you awesome resources. Father Ricardo has a daily Rosary link, and there is a daily recorded mass, and of course a Divine Office Link. The button for online giving is not linked to our parish bank account,

Coronavirus Update for the Faithful

Submitted by cooladmin — Sun, 03/15/2020 - 4:00 PM — Last Updated: Tue, 03/17/2020 - 5:05 PM

Updated 3/17/20:
Yesterday afternoon, the Bishops of Ohio issued additional guidance to the faithful. Their letter states: "the bishops of Ohio have decided, effective immediately, to suspend temporarily all publicly celebrated Masses/liturgies, at least through the celebrations of Holy Week and Easter. The bishops of Ohio dispense the Catholic faithful who reside in their respective dioceses and all other Catholics currently in Ohio from the obligation of attending Sunday Mass through Easter Sunday." In addition, all parish activities including PSR, Fish Frys, choirs, and lay ministries are canceled. The letter goes on to say: "Sunday remains a holy day, and we encourage the faithful to pray using the rich resources of our faith, including praying as a family or individually the rosary, divine mercy chaplet, the Liturgy of the Hours, stations of the cross, etc. We also urge you to participate in prayer by way of radio broadcast or televised or live-streamed Mass and make a spiritual communion." In a letter to the priests of the Diocese of Columbus, informing them of this decision, Bishop Brennan expressed deep sadness at the necessity of making this decision. He also indicated that Funerals and Weddings would be permitted, but would be restricted to the family only.  The Knights of Columbus Supreme Council has also canceled all business and in-person meetings nationwide until further notice.
