  •        We are now going into the sixth year of collaboration. How are we preparing for future adjustments and transitions that may occur within the next year?
  •        Over the last five years we have collected data at every Mass that indicates a decline in Mass attendance over the summer. People adjust their schedules over the summer and rightfully so. It is time for us to do the same.
  •        Our current schedule is not sustainable if someone becomes ill and cannot function and/or we do not receive an SMA priest for the summer.
  •        This new summer schedule will remain in place whether we receive an SMA priest or not. Having a schedule in place that one priest can fulfill makes sense going forward.
  •        We are still counting on your financial support. A reduced schedule should not mean a reduced offertory! There are ways of giving whether it be online or through envelopes, whether you are physically present or not. Please let us know if you have any questions.
  •        Confessions will be celebrated at St. Catherine before the 4:00 PM Saturday Mass (3:00-3:45 PM).
  •         This information will be publicized in the bulletin and on our websites.
  •            All of the above was decided in consultation with the Pastoral Council and Liturgy Committee.

Thank you for your consideration as we attempt to be proactive moving forward in collaboration.

God love,
            Fr. Peter and Fr. Joe
