In this time of a global pandemic, the church has urged an abundance of caution so that our population can be protected from this coronavirus. The media has already reported the guidelines of the diocese regarding Sunday mass and parish activities. Here at St. John’s, our Sunday morning adult formation classes, as well as Faith Formation for our children, are on hold until we get further direction from the bishop. He has encouraged, however that scheduled Lenten Penance services be held. Our own penance service is this Sunday afternoon at 4:00 o’clock. This is not a time for fear, but simple common sense, of which there is an abundance at St. John’s. Be well and may the Lord be with us.
