A written message to all of you from Father Shoup
Fr. Steve’s message for Holy Thursday, April 9, 2020:
 
This evening’s Mass of the Lord’s Supper begins the high holy days of the Triduum. At this Mass we celebrate not only Christ’s institution of the Holy Eucharist at the Last Supper but also his final command to serve others (washing of his disciples’ feet). Not being able to receive the Eucharist is a great sacrifice on the part of all Catholic laity. But not as great as the sacrifice of Jesus suffering and death on the Cross. May our love of the Eucharist be increased ever more so, as we begin the three-day celebration of our salvation in Jesus Christ.
 
An Act of Love: O Lord God, I love you above all things and I love my neighbor for your sake because you are the highest, infinite and perfect good, worthy of all my love. In this love I intend to live and die. Amen
 
Information for you:
1. St. Michael Church remains open for private prayer. Social distancing must be practiced in the church building. Due to high winds today, the only unlocked door is the East door (handicapped entrance).
2. The livestreamed Holy Week schedule is Holy Thursday at 7:00p, Good Friday at 1:00p, and Easter Sunday at 10:00a.
3. Both our churches will be decorated for Easter. On Easter Sunday both churches will be open for parishioners to come and pray.
 
4. Photography for our new pictorial directory will be rescheduled after the crisis.
 
A secured drop box is now in the West entryway to the Parish Office Center. It is bolted to the floor and locked and will be emptied daily for security reasons. For those who wish to drop off a donation for either Church you can drop off your donations anytime. Remember checks are more secure than cash!
