Message from Father Sievel:
We are living in extraordinary times. Covid-19 has shuttered our churches and so much of what we take for granted like restaurants, schools and ample store hours. Most of us have experienced shortages of cleaning products, toilet paper and some food products.
I suggest that this Lenten season invites us to much sacrifice and simplicity of life. I celebrate Mass daily for all of you and ask God to assist medical professionals , first responders, and research scientists in their work. During this month of March we celebrate the Solemnity of St. Joseph on the 19th. I have entrusted to his protection all of us experiencing this difficult time. May St. Joseph, who cared for Jesus and Mary, be our sure strength and hope in these dark days.
Blessings to you all.
Forward in Faith,
Father Tom Sievel
