In these uncertain and troubling times, the leadership of the Polish National Catholic Church, both secular and spiritual, has decided to implement a better safe than sorry approach to the Coronavirus outbreak.
Effective immediately, until further notice, all activities in our parish will be temporarily suspended. This includes all meetings and assemblies of any type. Mass will be celebrated by the clergy at 9:30 AM on Sundays in order to offer prayers for the faithful but all parishioners are instructed to to remain at home and to pray together from there as the one body of Christ. Should anyone come to Mass because they did not receive this notification, they will be asked to maintain the recommended social distancing of at least six feet from other parishioners. The Eucharist will not be distributed to the congregation but will be replaced by the recitation of the “Act of Spiritual Communion” at the appropriate time during the Mass. The text will be provide in the Bulletin and in the weekly Worship Guide for those not attending Mass. This will be posted on the website each week along with or in place of the bulletin until such time as we are once again able to gather together to give praise, honor and glory to the Lord God Almighty. The links below will provide you with the latest Official Statement from the Office of the Prime Bishop, a list of cancelled and re-scheduled events within the church, guides to Sunday and Lenten Worship Services. The Sunday Worship Guide will be updated weekly. Please share this information with any and all parishioners that you are in contact with to make sure that they know to stay home from church until further notice. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call me anytime at 610-775-4559. This number also rings my cell phone so i am available most anytime. With God’s grace we will weather this storm and come through stronger than ever. Please keep all of those affected by this sickness in your thoughts and prayers daily, especially the health care providers working so hard and so selflessly to battle this outbreak. Take care, stay well and may God bless you and yours in this time of crisis.
