As Masses Resume by Reservation . . .
A PARTIAL relaxation will begin Monday, May 18th. CONTRARY to what you may have heard, there are NO PUBLIC MASSES. TINY groups of 25 will be allowed to join AFTER making a reservation. No one should expect to just show up and walk in. OVERALL GUIDANCE • Dispensation - everyone is still excused from attending • Senior citizens or those with special conditions would be better staying home. If you are hungry for the Lord, call Father, I will visit you to pray and offer Holy Communion. • Children - with very limited seating, children especially those who have not...

Father Bill's Pastor's Corner
May 17 - We try to be a pro-life people dedicated to the sacredness of human life at all stages. That includes the baby in utero and the elderly person on a ventilator. They are dependent and fragile needing someone to speak for them. Now we are being forced to show it and move beyond pious words or bumper stickers. Some will argue that in the balance of things, we can’t waste time with elderly. They will contend they are destined to die anyway. They have diminishing value. Yet for us, all are precious in the eyes of God and deserve dignity. We are all chafing at the ...

May 3 - April has dragged in many ways. Thankfully, May will be warmer and sunnier. Trees will burst with green, flowers will share more beauty and we will savor long walks under bright skies. But it’s also the month of Mary, and Mothers’ Day, and Memorial Day. Definitely a time to give thanks and ask for blessings upon so many. Let’s commence this month in a more positive way... by starting up the rosary again on Friday’s 8:30am in St Boniface. You can contemplate these biblical moments, give praise and still distance safely. Holy Mary, Mother ...

Father Bill's Pastor's Corner
April 26 - Because we were robbed of a full Lent, we didn’t have a chance to really reflect on the unavoidable part of life...death. Corona has reminded us. Similarly, we have had a series of parishioners pass away in the past weeks. Life is fragile and can expire very quickly. So, what endures? Our relationship with Jesus Christ. We can be separated from family and friends. But we never are cut off from the love of Christ. Only we can sever the ties, voluntarily, by choice. Even as the sun appears and flowers bloom, we are confronted by a very sobering atmosphere eve...
