Beginning July 6, we will resume our daily Masses schedule.
Nativity of the Lord, Monday and Friday, 8:30 am
St. Veronica, Wednesday and Thursday, 8:30 am
This is subject to change once Fr. Carmelo become responsible for St. Paul Parish. Already scheduled Mass intentions will be moved to the next available weekday Mass.
I Wear A Mask To Protect You. Please Wear A Mask To Protect Me
The type of masks we are wearing are approximately 60% effective at blocking incoming virus germs, but are about 90% effective at blocking outgoing virus germs from the wearer. Tracking of virus breakout vectors indicates that about half of the people infected outside of the hospital or care facility are infected by non-mask wearing persons carrying the virus but who are not symptomatic at the time they infect others.
While this is the primary reason for asking you to wear a face covering at Mass, please consider doing this in the mindset of "caring for others". Christ calls us to love God and our neighbor as ourselves. Christ even calls us to love our enemies. At this point in time an expression of love for others-even enemies-is to wear a mask. Thank you for considering this.
South Shore Parishes Update
Fr. Carmelo recently made an announcement regarding the structure of our South Shore Parishes. Fr. Arul has been reassigned to Holy Apostles in New Berlin while leaving St. Paul and Sacred Heart of Jesus. Originally Fr. Jon Jenkins was going to be an Associate for St. Paul and Sacred Heart of Jesus, but he was directed by his Ordinary to take a parish in Texas instead. The new arrangement will have Fr. Carmelo add St. Paul to his pastorship and Fr. Phillip Schumaker will add Sacred Heart of Jesus. These changes take place August 4. The logistics of Masses and all other operations are yet to be determined once the needs are known. Please pray for Fr. Carmelo and Fr. Phillip and yourselves, as change is imminent for all six parishes. God listens to your prayers and always leads us down the path that's right for us. HAVE FAITH!
