PLEASE PRAY FOR OUR OCIA CANDIDATES
Fr. Tamminga’s Service will be on Wednesday, June 24, 2020 at 10:00 AM. All are welcome who feel, during these times, they can come. Social distancing and face masks are required. The first three quarters of the church is reserved for the family and close friends, priests, deacons and spouses, and staff and spouses. The last third will be for parishioners and when the church is filled there will be seats available in the gym. Those in the gym will be part of the Mass via live streaming. They will also receive communion just as those in the church.
Also, to let all those who choose not to come and those who can’t come, the service will be live streamed either on the Parish Web Page or on Facebook. In this way all will be able to be there in spirit.
Peace be with you! Our prayers and thoughts are with the Community of St. Francis De Sales during this time of grieving.
