PASTORAL VISITATIONS
Nursing homes and hospitals are restricting regular access at this time.  For the safety of everyone and for the protection of our shut-ins, usual pastoral visits will be delayed.  In urgent circumstances, do not hesitate to phone the pastor (486-2754) and he will be happy to minister to you on a personal basis.  

CONFIRMATION INSTRUCTION
All 7th & 8th Grade Confirmation students should focus on learning the 4 parts of Holy Communion  (Pages 13-14) in the Catechism at this time and reading through pages 350-373 Students have been contacted by email and the pastor is currently presenting lessons by a video link.  Lenten sermon notes can be taken by listening to the Lenten & Holy Week sermons and submitted by email photo or in person at a future date.   Stay tuned for eventual information on how we will handle examination and confirmation.
