Covid-19 Stuff

The following is a list of particular actions that St. Mary’s Catholic Church & School will take as precautions related to the Covid-19 outbreak:

  1. Children’s Faith Formation (CFF) will be cancelled THRU Sunday, April 26.
    We are currently deciding whether or not we will hold CFF gatherings during May.
  2. Gatherings of 11+ people are SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
    This includes prayer groups, Bible studies, Boy/Cub Scouts, etc.
  3. Gatherings of 14 or fewer people are allowed to happen, but only with explicit permission of our pastor, Fr. David Graham.
  4. Now through April 24, St. Mary’s School (& Sacred Heart of Jesus High School) will instruct students through online coursework & home assignments.
    On-site courses will resume as usual on Monday, April 27.
  5. There will be limited practices (in small groups) for school sports teams. Families & players should look to their coaches for particular information.
  6. Our pastor & faith formation team will be evaluating & creating a plan related to sacramental preparation & celebrations.
  7. All First Holy Communion families should be receiving a mailed packet with specific information by Monday, April 6.
  8. We are still awaiting information from the Office of the Bishop on the celebration of Confirmation.

During this unprecedented time & situation, we know that parishioners still want to see the celebration of Mass & hear the spiritual wisdom of our pastor. Here are some links to help that happen.

  • All of Fr. David’s homilies that are available in mp3 format (audio file) will be available by clicking this link.
  • This link provides a collated list of EVERY available option for online streaming of Holy Mass.
