As of the latest health order, we are allowed 25% of our capacity or in our case 30 people not counting the priest, altar server, reader, organist, and cantor. Masses and religious gatherings can be held at 25% of the usual capacity of the premises or 100 persons, whichever is lower. We miss you and would love to see you back, however, we need you to feel safe and we understand the anxiety some are feeling. We will do everything in our power to follow the rules and keep everyone safe.
There is hand sanitizer at the door and if you do not have a mask, we will provide one. We will practice safe distance and encourage everyone to be understanding of others and their concerns. Persons attending a religious service at a place of worship must wear a mask at all times, except when they are seated.
Words from Fr. Sylvanus
THEME: VICTORY THROUGH THE CROSS We celebrate today Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Christ made his way into Jerusalem as people were wondering whether he would come or not, as plans have been concluded to arrest him. Sometimes, we need to stop worrying and wondering how things will turn out, but just have faith that things will work out, maybe not how we planned, but just how it’s meant to be. Christ’s entry into Jerusalem was meant to be. ‘’Rejoice greatly O daughter Zion! Shout aloud, O daughter Jerusalem! Lo, your king comes to you; triumphant and victorious is he, humble and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey’’ (Zechariah 9:9). Christ made a courageous entry into Jerusalem not as a warrior king but a humble one. Hence, he rode on a donkey instead of a horse. Faith in God demands courageous witnessing. Today’s celebration is a mixture of joy and sorrow. It is the reality of human life. Christ’s victory does not come from shouts of hosanna but through the mystery of the cross. When our joy turns to sorrow, if we hold to the end, our sorrow will eventually turn to joy, just as Christ’s suffering was followed by his resurrection. Let us courageously journey with Christ this holy week: from his passion to his resurrection. His victory guarantees our own victory: from darkness to the fullness of light.
