Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
I hope you were successful in Part One and Two of the scavenger hunt. I hope it has given you a different focus than the virus. Part Three is today! It is good to change your focus from time to time so we are not overwhelmed with the news and our own fear. That is why I encourage you to have some fun with the scavenger hunt.
The podcast is also helpful in maneuvering through this awkward space we are in now. We are not alone. The whole world is affected by Covid-19. Remember in your prayers not only this community of St. Andrew, but our brothers and sisters throughout the world who are enduring and suffering from this pandemic. Here is the podcast link again, in case you missed it yesterday: https://cac.org/podcasts/bonus-finding-presence-in-the-midst-of-a-pandemic/.
The staff and I are preparing for Palm Sunday Mass. More information will be forthcoming regarding when to watch it.
I wish your peace,
Also, please note our temporary church office hours are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., M-Th (not 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. as mistakenly posted yesterday).
