LIVESTREAMING OF MASS EVERY SUNDAY AT TIME TO BE ANNOUNCED until further notice

Every Sunday, even though we have resumed Sunday Mass outdoors for now, we will Livestream Mass here on our website, as well as on the Our Lady Comforter of the Afflicted Facebook page as long as the technology and internet are working.  We had some heat issues the weekend of June 20/21 where the phones were overheating while recording the Mass.  Until all are able to join together in our Church to celebrate Mass, we will bring the Mass to you in your homes.  Let us continue to pray for each other during this time.

 

Our Lady’s Church remains open daily from 8:00am-6:00pm with the Eucharist on the altar for as long as we have limited volunteers present, practicing social distancing, according to State Health and Archdiocesan Guidelines.  If you would like to volunteer an hour or so, call Sharon in the parish office or email her at parish@olca.org

Know of my continued prayers for you and your families.   May Mary, our Mother, continue to intercede for us before the Throne of the One God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  God bless you all.

Fr. DiPerri, Pastor
