In these challenging times, Jesus Christ remains in our midst, granting us peace and confidence in his merciful love. St. Benedict Parish remains open for prayer and the needs of the people of God. Let us be unified in prayer for our world.
In light of Bishop Knestout's recent request to suspend all public celebrations of the Mass because of the Coronavirus (see his letter HERE, and the Diocesan Coronavirus website HERE), St. Benedict Parish is making the following changes:
ALL public celebrations of the Mass at St. Benedict are suspended until further notice. Stations of the Cross and Thursday Adoration are likewise suspended.
St. Benedict Church will be open for private prayer before the Blessed Sacrament on the following schedule: Monday through Friday from 8:00am until 6:00pm; Saturday and Sunday from 10:00am until 5:00pm.
Fr. John David will be celebrating a private Mass daily for assigned intentions and for the good of the People of God.
The normal schedule for confessions is temporarily suspended. Fr. John David will be available for confessions on: Tuesday and Thursday from 8:00am to 9:00am; Wednesday and Friday from 5:00pm to 6:00pm, and Saturday from 12:00pm to 1:00pm.
The church office remains open during the usual hours. Please use telephone or email to contact us, rather than a personal visit, if at all possible. All other church activities continue to be cancelled for the time being.
Please check this website frequently for updates in this rapidly changing situation.
