We created a webpage of resources to help you grow in your faith during this time of quarantine. Check it out here!
The COVID-19 virus and the suspension of public Masses has been a difficult cross to receive this Lent. While this cross may be heavy, it’s not meant to be carried alone. In the Fifth Station of the Cross, Jesus teaches us that sometimes we need a Simon of Cyrene to help us carry our cross and sometimes we need to be a Simon of Cyrene to help others carry their crosses. Suffering becomes beautiful when it leads us into deeper communion with one another.
We know the quarantine has made it difficult for us to be in communion with one another, but even though we cannot physically gather, we can take comfort knowing that through our baptism in Christ, we are always united to one another. Now, more than ever, we need to commit to one another through prayers and sacrifices. While Masses may be suspended, the graces of prayer are available to us and they are real. Your prayers matter and do effect change.
We have created this webpage in an effort to stay in community with you. Although our office is not able to receive you physically, please call us to let us know your spiritual and material needs. We are happy to assist you. We want to be your Simon of Cyrene.
We will update this page regularly with a variety of resources to help you during this time. Our bulletin will also continue to be published and placed in the entry way of every church. Please let those who do not have Internet access know that our bulletin is a great source of information for them.
We are holding each and every one of you in prayer.
St. Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church, pray for us and protect us.
