During this difficult time we find ourselves facing something we have never faced before. Some of you are homebound alone and others are finding themselves without jobs but still have bills to pay. This is also true for the Church, there are still expenses that need to be paid, such as lights, heat, water, etc., therefore we are asking those who can, to continue their regular tithe. You can do this by using one of these options.
To help keep us connected:
Some things you can do to keep you connected to your Faith are:
If you should be out and about note the white ribbons on the doors of the church. These are to remind you that God will not forget you and that we are praying for you and will rejoice one day soon when we can once again gather together to celebrate the Eucharist.
This is a time we need to bring comfort and hope to one another and if you know of anyone who is struggling or needs assistance please let us know. If you know someone who is homebound and is alone, give them a call, sometimes it is nice to just hear another voice. Be thoughtful of those around you and ask Mary to intercede by praying the Rosary each day for this virus to end soon.
If you have questions or know of someone who needs assistance, please contact any one of us.

EFFECTIVE 3/16/2020, NO PUBLIC MASSES WILL BE HELD UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
The Chrism Mass is canceled. Bishop will celebrate the Chrism Mass in Redmond.
There will be no Holy Week or Easter Services.
We are NOT able to take Holy Communion out. Bishop Cary explains that the Holy Communion is the fruit of the Mass, and therefore should not be given outside of Mass. Holy Communion without Mass is reserved soley for the sick.
I know this causes a great sense of loss for our people, but perhaps this could be a good time to join in solidarity with Catholics who rarely are able to receive, in places such as China, North Korea, Saudia Arabia and other places where the Church is persecuted.
Bishop Cary will celebrate Sunday Mass each week in English at 9:00 AM. He will celebrate Sunday Mass in Spanish at 10:30 AM. This will be streamed through the Diocesan Website, https://dioceseofbaker.org/. Beginning March 23rd, he will be streaming daily Mass in English at 8:10 AM, Monday through Friday. The recitation of the Rosary will be live streamed Monday - Friday at 10:00 AM in English and 10:30 in Spanish.
