Please continue to pray as a community and as individuals for those impacted by the Coronavirus.
 
God of all Creation, from the beginning of time you have shown your love for your people.
When you sent your son, Jesus, to live among us you shared our human joys as He celebrated with the wedding guests and you experienced our human pains in His suffering and death.
Be near to us in these days of uncertainty and fear.
Give us hope and trust as we are made to face our human frailty.
Grant us peace, wisdom, and courage as we work together to overcome this crisis.
And strengthen our faith, that with you we can conquer all evil and distress.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Hello Fr. Bauer,

Thank you! How about drive-thru confession? This would be wonderful for our community!

Kind regards,
God Bless

Live simply; Love generously; Care deeply;
Speak kindly; Leave the rest to God!

In the time I find myself and others in now, I feel like the church, the catholic community, and the christian community as a whole need mass now, as much, if not more than ever. The guidance of the Priest and the simple normality and comfort it brings are immeasurable to us. Please find a way to give us the peace and comfort that we crave so desperately.
In peace,
Matthew Thomas

Is the Basilica offering Sunday mass available virtually?
Thank you.
Meg
