Dear Friends in Christ,

Happy Easter Season!  It’s now DAY 66 since I first wrote on Friday 13 March to announce that we were cancelling all weekend Masses due to crowd limitations imposed by the State of Maryland.  The weekly bulletin is available at this link to keep you in touch, as a number of our meetings and other activities have moved into the virtual realm. 

We continue to live-streamed weekend Mass each Saturday at 5:00 PM.  If you cannot worship with us LIVE at that particular time, this weekend Mass will be available through our website on our YouTube channel any time afterwards for your convenience, especially on Sunday morning.  If you have children at home and would find a Children’s Liturgy of the Word helpful, please use the video resource here.  This is a new feature we are offering this week for our families.  During the weeks of the Easter season, please have a bowl of water at hand for the baptism remembrance at the beginning of each Mass.

To celebrate the fifth anniversary of the encyclical on the care for the environment, ‘Laudato Si’, Pope Francis has invited Catholics to participate in a nine-day global campaign of prayer and action from May 16-24. The theme of the week is “everything is connected.”  To participate, you can use the resources links that follow.  

Sincerely,

Fr. Keith

Join us for Coffee and Zoom!

Every Sunday from 12:00-12:45 “Coffee and Zoom” is available for online fellowship time.   So, after you have done your “church at home” for the weekend, join our online video conference fellowship time where we can see some familiar friendly faces, catch up with parishioners and staff members, and share a little about how we are managing in this challenging time.  We recommend using a laptop to join, but phones and tablets can also access the gathering.  Once folks have joined the session and we have had a chance to say hello to everyone, we usually break into smaller groups so we can chat with 6-8 other parishioners.  We hope you will join us… it would be great to “see” you again!  If you need the link please contact Brian McCrohan at bmccrohan@saintdrexel.org.
