We are pleased to announce that our church has partnered with myEoffering to provide you with the convenience of making online contributions.
Online giving allows you to make contributions to our church without writing checks or worrying about cash donations.
It is a process much like online bill pay, where your contributions are withdrawn directly from your bank account, debit or credit card.
We invite you to sign up for Online Giving as it is the most efficient way to support the ministries of our church, allowing us to have a steady, predictable cash flow.
As always, we thank you for your generosity in the spirit and practice of stewardship!

· Convenient: Give anywhere, at any time, on a computer, tablet or mobile device
Our parish has recently added the ability to broadcast our Masses live on an FM channel that is able to reach areas of our parking lot. You will now be able to park and listen, and tune to FM 87.7 on your car radio. The optimum area is the lot behind the church by our chapel entrance. Those using this service can come in for Holy Communion either during the regular time, or after Mass as the people inside the Church head home. This will be helpful for Christmas as we will have limited seating due to COVID restrictions. The broadcast will be available for all Masses.

In addition to its online edition, MAGNIFICAT is now offering complimentary access to its iOS and Android Apps throughout May. To register for free access in English, visit www.magnificat.com/free.
We are also happy to make available complimentary access to MagnifiKid. Visit www.magnifikid.com/free to view and download each weekly booklet of our colorful Sunday missalette for children ages 6 through 12. While so many children are missing formal religious instruction and are unable to attend Mass, MagnifiKid! can be their special guide, accompanying them through each week as they prepare to attend Mass or watch it at home.
2. IBreviary – free Liturgy of the Hours resources for every hour.
The web page offers a printable prayer PDF for the current hour every day. Access it HERE.
When we are prevented from receiving the Eucharist at Mass, the Church encourages us to make an act of “spiritual communion,” where we unite ourselves to God through prayer. It is a beautiful way to express to God our desire to be united with him when we are unable to complete that union in the reception of Holy Communion.
Bishop Gainer Grants Dispensation for Sunday Mass Obligation
March 12, 2020
Today and effective immediately until further notice, Bishop Ronald W. Gainer, in union with the Bishops of Pennsylvania, has dispensed the faithful of the Diocese of Harrisburg from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass. Despite the suspension of the obligation to attend Sunday Mass, all regularly scheduled masses will remain open to the public for those who wish to attend. Bishop Gainer made this move out of great concern for the health and well-being of the faithful, their families, our clergy and parish staff, given the current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Those still wishing to attend Mass are welcome, but are asked to be careful in their contact with others. The Diocese advises those who are currently ill, the elderly and those with a compromised immune system to remain at home.
In addition to the dispensation, the Diocese has also requested that all parishes suspend the sign of peace; suspend the use of holy water fonts; suspend the distribution of the Precious Blood by way of the Chalice; take great care when separating the Holy Eucharist into separate vessels by pouring the hosts from one vessel to another; frequently wash hands, especially for our Priests, Deacons and Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion; and regularly wash and disinfect doorknobs, pews and other places of high contact.
Additionally, at this time, the preferred method of reception of Holy Communion is “in the hand.” This is not a theological but rather a practical recommendation. However, no one is forbidden from receiving Holy Communion on the tongue.
Please visit the Diocesan website, www.hbgdiocese.org, for a listing of Diocesan event cancelations and postponements, as well as additional COVID-19 prevention measures and recommendations from the Diocese.
