Updated June 8th: A Letter from Deacon George

Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ,

It was good to see those who were able to attend one of the outdoor Masses this past weekend. Just a reminder that we start in-door Masses this week with limited attendance. Weekday Masses began on Monday, June 8th with Masses being offered at the Church of the Resurrection on Monday-Wednesday-Friday @ 9:00 am and at St. Paul’s on Tuesday-Thursday-Saturday @ 9:00 am. Weekend Masses are being celebrated on Saturday @ 5:00 pm and Sunday @ 8:00 am and 10:30 am at both parishes of the Pastorate. Registration for the weekend Masses is required, please call the parish office (410-465-1670) to register for a Mass. No registration is required for the daily Masses.

To help facilitate the proper health and safety procedures at the Masses we need volunteers; such as greeters and cleaners. The greeters will assist the ushers in checking-in registered parishioners and helping to escort parishioners to their assigned seats. Cleaners will help to clean and disinfect the Church after each Mass. If you would like to volunteer please contact the parish office (410-465-1670) or send me an email (deacongeorge@stpaulec.org). There is a training session for all Mass volunteers today, Wednesday June 10th @ 7:00 pm in the Church.

For those unable to attend an in-person Mass over the weekend, on-line Mass is still being offered on Sunday morning. The link to the recorded Mass can be found on the parish website.

Did you happen to catch the Saturday evening concert conducted by Diane Waslick and several of our Young Adults from the parish. It was excellent, there was also a special surprise at the end. The concert has been recorded and is available on our parish website as well as the parish Facebook page.

Have a Blessed and wonderful week,

Deacon George
