After fifteen months of restriction!

Some happy photos from last weekend's Masses - we welcome back the Cornells (above), with Bob returning as lector and Extraordinary Minister at the Saturday Vigil Mass. Photo on left shows Fr. Jon, a rare occasion to see him in the pew. Seated near him are Sister Katherine and Roberta who have been attending our Masses. Welcome, welcome! 

Looking Back Through the  Fifteen Months of COVID Restrictions

Just a short video looking back through the fifteen months of COVID restrictions. Most of the new photos were taken from the lunch gathering that ministers and volunteers shared on Sunday, July 18th,  after the 10:00 a.m. Mass. You can tell - those pictures without the face coverings!  It was a simple meal of pizza and wraps (someone forgot to bring out the dessert - cheesecake and pies!) just to spend some time to breathe and check in with each other after fifteen months of being on "alert" mode - tirelessly sanitizing and taking care of details to make sure the church remained safe and protected from the virus. 

A note from one of our parishioners, Joan: "Stella this is the first gathering of St. Patrick's Alter Guild since February 2020.  It is at my home. From left to right:  Francis Britt, Joan Galles, Sue Anker (seated) ,Virginia Durrin, Maxine Stanley (seated), Willilah Mosbrucker and Virginia Weiner.

Eeey, we had a good weekend for picture-taking - most of them did not complain (about their pictures being taken) and actually smiled!! Most of the new pictures were taken during the simple lunch that our Mass ministers and volunteers shared after the Sunday Mass - the first time where most of us were able to gather without safety restrictions and just catch up with other important stuff. I think it was the first time we had to talk about anything except bleach on our clothes and sanitizing! Thank you all!
