Dear Friends in Christ,

For a last time in this format, I am pleased to welcome you to our “one click” weekend virtual worship Clicking on this link will lead you to a prayer time with most of the elements that occur during Mass– except for sharing in the Eucharist (which current restrictions do not allow us to assemble in church for).  If you have children in your house and would like to try a Children’s Liturgy of the Word, please use the resources here.

Each week we will hear from our various musical groups, and various liturgical ministers will be coming to you from their homes.  Discussion questions are also available at this link for your own personal reflection, or to share with others at home.  During the weeks of the Easter season, please have a bowl of water at hand for the baptism remembrance as you begin the liturgy.

The reason this is the “last time in this format” is that beginning next weekend we will begin live-streaming weekend Mass from our church at 5:00 PM on Saturday afternoon, which will then also continue to be available throughout Sunday. It appears that, when statistics indicate the time is right, some people may be allowed to return to church (with social-distancing in place), while others may still need to isolate themselves.  Offering weekend worship in this mode will prepare us to welcome people back to Mass who are able, while also allowing those still confined to home to share a similar experience.

As society continues to adapt and respond to the tremendous challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic– your faith community continues to adapt and evolve in the way it serves your spiritual life.  And I continue to look forward to actually “seeing” you again in church someday in the future!

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.
