THREE-PHASED REOPENING OF DIOCESAN CHURCHES – It is important to continually check back and review the Ascension Guidelines as we prepare to celebrate Mass in our church. As with nearly all aspects of our daily lives during this pandemic, we will have to adjust to new procedures when in a public setting. We ask for your patience and cooperation during this time.
- Monday, May 25 – Ascension’s weekday 9:00 am Mass will resume. The church will be available for private prayer before and after the Mass starting at 8:30 am and closing at 10:00 am.
- Saturday, May 30 and Sunday, May 31 – weekend Masses will resume with limited seating capacity. Specific guidelines for everyone’s personal safety will be posted the week of May 18.

More Than Words: Often, we underestimate the power of our words, but if you look back on your life you know that words have tremendous power to both encourage and inspire and to hurt and to wound. Words can bring life and they can bring death. Over the next few weeks, we are going to learn and grow how to use our words so that we bring life and not death.
As human beings, we don’t have the power of God to make what we say happen right away. However, through our words, we are sowing seeds and over time our lives bear the fruit of the words we have said. By speaking them aloud, they are planted in our subconscious minds, take root, grow, and produce the fruit of the same kind. Whether we speak positive or negative words, we will reap exactly what we sow. That’s why we need to be extremely careful about what we think and say.
