Has your parish returned to church?

Has your parish returned to church? - 08/20/20 01:57 PM

We've been attending on Sundays. We are not afraid but we are prudent. All wear masks, families sit six feet apart, and we sit in every other row. Our pastor has worked things out well. The parish is also streaming Mass daily and on Sundays, Meditation on Monday evenings, Rosary, and other occasions as well. Last Sunday my granddaughter was confirmed in another parish. She was very excited and it was fun to be around 12 young teens being confirmed.

What has your experience been. I am very happy to be in church with my parish family.

I really liked the second reading on Sunday (9/6) (Ezekiel 33:7-9 and Mathew 18:15-20)

Romans 13: 8 The only thing you should owe to anyone is love for one another, for to love the other person is to fulfill the law.
9 All these: You shall not commit adultery, You shall not kill, You shall not steal, You shall not covet, and all the other commandments that there are, are summed up in this single phrase: You must love your neighbor as yourself.
10 Love can cause no harm to your neighbor, and so love is the fulfillment of the Law.
