Bishop Larry Silva announces the "Resumption of Sunday Mass Obligation":
 
Effective Easter Sunday, April 4 (or as of the Easter Vigil, April 3), I am ending the dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass, which has been in effect since mid-March, 2020. However, anyone who is sick, may have been exposed to anyone with COVID-19, or who has a health condition that would endanger themselves or others by being present in church, continues to be dispensed.

“THE LORD HAS DONE GREAT THINGS FOR US; WE ARE FILLED WITH JOY!”

    The words of this Sunday’s Responsorial Psalm help frame our celebration. We come together on the Second Sunday of Advent to thank God for all he has done for us. We are called to meditate on God’s goodness and all that He has done for us. On this second Sunday of Advent, let us go on a pilgrimage to the Jordan River and attend the Sunday School of St. John the Baptist. Let us listen to his message and put it into action in our lives. St. John says during our class, “I am the voice of One crying out in the desert.” He did not say, “I am one crying out in the desert,” he instead said, “I am the voice of one crying out in the desert.” John is the voice, the megaphone, the spokesperson. Christ, who is the Word, is the One crying out. John’s message is God’s message, a message that was urgent and clear: “Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths.” John the Baptist was telling the people more than 2000 years ago what he also tells us at the beginning of every Advent, that we need to spiritually prepare a similar way for Christ to come.
    “To make straight the paths of the Lord” means to clear the path of sin, which is the major barrier for the Lord to enter into our lives. Repeating the words of the prophet Isaiah, John the Baptist says, “Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be made low. The winding roads shall be made straight, and the rough ways made smooth.” We have to make low the mountains of our pride and self-centeredness. We have to fill in the valleys that come from a shallow prayer life and a mediocre way of living our faith. We have to straighten out whatever crooked paths we have been walking. If we have been living a double life, meaning appearing holy in public but living in sin in secret, Jesus is calling us through John the Baptist to end it. If we have been holding grudges or hatred, or failing to reconcile with others, now is the time to let go. If worshipping and thanking
God is low on our list of priorities and if we have been telling Him that we do not really have the time for him, it is now time to get our priorities straight.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Our CCD classes on Sunday mornings are back in session.  We ask all drivers to PLEASE SLOW DOWN, follow traffic rules and watch out for the children.  Let us all keep our children safe.  Please arrive early for the Mass so you will avoid rushing to get into the church.
 
Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Next weekend there will be a special collection for the Retirement Fund for Religious.  Senior sisters, brothers and religious order priests served for many years in Catholic schools, hospitals, and parishes—often for little to no pay.  Now many religious communities do not have enough retirement savings and struggle to provide for aging members and need your help.  Your gift to the Retirement Fund for Religious will help to provide medications, nursing care, and more.  Envelopes are included in the bulletin and at the resource racks.  Please take one home and return it next weekend with your gift.
