COVID-19 Extended Mandatory Directives 

March 25, 2020 


My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, It is very hard for me to believe that it has only been about ten days since I sent out to all of our locations certain guidelines and directives regarding the celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and other gatherings in our parishes and other locations. The landscape has changed dramatically since. In fact, it changes every day. The pandemic we face has grown and all indications are that it will continue to do so for some time. With that in mind, I am sending all of you this update of MANDATED directives that we will all follow over the weeks to come. We were all hoping that the restriction on the celebration of public Masses would end by Monday morning of next week, that is, on March the 30th. That is no longer the case. Please advise your parishioners, ministers and employees that the suspension of public Mass and all activities at our parishes will continue INDEFINITELY. Clearly this will directly impact our Holy Week celebrations, RCIA programs and, again, many other activities. On the following pages you will find instructions and directives as to how that will be handled and in what manner and to what extent, if any, some of our Triduum and Easter celebrations can be observed. This is a kind of ‘death’ experience for us all. We have given up much this Lent. It has been a true, if temporary, loss. We are dying to ourselves and like Lazarus of this Sunday’s Gospel, we too are waiting for the Lord to call us back to life. Like his dear sister, Martha, we are also proclaiming with full voice, “Yes, Lord, I have come to believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, the one who is coming into the world. "So, yes, my brothers and sisters, there is life on the other side of all this sacrifice and suffering we are currently undergoing. We have all been reminded that there is no Easter without Calvary. But what a glorious Easter it will be, here and hereafter! In Christ, Bishop Joseph V. Brennan

COVID-19 Directivas obligatorias extendidas

25 de marzo de 2020  


Mis queridos hermanos y hermanas en Cristo: Es muy difícil para mí creer que solo han pasado unos diez días desde que envié a todos nuestros lugares ciertas pautas y directivas con respecto a la celebración del Santo Sacrificio de la Misa y otras reuniones en nuestras parroquias y otros lugares. El paisaje ha cambiado dramáticamente desde entonces. De hecho, cambia todos los días. La pandemia que enfrentamos ha aumentado y todo indica que continuará haciéndolo durante algún tiempo. Con eso en mente, les envío a todos ustedes esta actualización de las directivas de MANDATED que todos seguiremos en las próximas semanas. Todos esperábamos que la restricción en la celebración de misas públicas terminara el lunes por la mañana de la próxima semana, es decir, el 30 de marzo. Ese ya no es el caso. Por favor avise a sus feligreses, ministros y empleados que la suspensión de la misa pública y todas las actividades en nuestras parroquias continuará INDEFINIDAMENTE. Claramente, esto afectará directamente nuestras celebraciones de Semana Santa, los programas de RICA y, nuevamente, muchas otras actividades. En las siguientes páginas encontrará instrucciones y directivas sobre cómo se manejará eso y de qué manera y en qué medida, si corresponde, se pueden observar algunas de nuestras celebraciones de Triduo y Pascua. Esta es una especie de experiencia de "muerte" para todos nosotros. Hemos renunciado mucho a esta Cuaresma. Ha sido una pérdida verdadera, aunque temporal. Nos estamos muriendo y como Lázaro del Evangelio de este domingo, nosotros también estamos esperando que el Señor nos llame a la vida. Al igual que su querida hermana, Marta, también estamos proclamando con voz plena: "Sí, Señor, he llegado a creer que tú eres el Cristo, el Hijo de Dios, el único que viene al mundo". Entonces, sí, Mis hermanos y hermanas, hay vida al otro lado de todo este sacrificio y sufrimiento que estamos experimentando actualmente. Todos nos han recordado que no hay Pascua sin el Calvario. ¡Pero qué gloriosa Pascua será aquí y en el más allá! En Cristo, Obispo Joseph V. Brennan
