Parish News

Persons are excused from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays or Holy Days under the following circumstances:

  1. You have reason to believe your health would be significantly compromised if you were to contract a communicable illness (i.e., you have underlying conditions or are in a high-risk category).
  2. You exhibit flu-like symptoms.
  3. You have good reason to think you might be asymptomatic of a contagious illness (e.g., you were in recent contact with someone who tested positive for a contagious illness such as COVID or influenza).
  4. You care for the sick, homebound, or infirmed.
  5. You are pregnant or you are 65 years of age or older (per the CDC’s recommendation for high-risk individuals).
  6. You cannot attend Mass through no fault of your own (e.g., no Mass is offered; you are infirm; or, while wanting to go, you are prevented for some reason you cannot control, such as your ride did not show up).
  7. You have significant fear or anxiety of becoming ill by being at Mass.

If situations 1 through 3 apply to you, prudent concern for your neighbor should lead you to stay home.
If you fall within situations 4-7, please exercise good judgment, consider the common good, and know you would not be held to the obligation of attending Mass.
For further questions about the application of any of these situations, please contact the St. Raphael office.

*Those who come to worship may choose to wear a mask or may choose to not wear a mask. If you need a mask, free masks are available. If you are not feeling well, please stay home for your own safety and the safety of others.

A Christmas Message from Bishop Daniel

Dear Brothers and Sisters, 

Joy to the world, the Lord is come! Let earth receive her King! The words to this favorite Christmas hymn really say (sing) it all. First of all, what is the joy that is brought into the world? Well, in this case, it is not so much a what as a who. It is the Lord, Jesus Christ. Jesus, who is joy, has come into the world. He took flesh. He became one like us is all ways but sin. He is the game changer. He is the deal breaker. As the gospel of St. John reminds us, “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16). In Jesus, there is a divine healing, hope, and joy that the world cannot give but only receive from Jesus as its Lord and King. This year, as we celebrate the season of Christmas, let us receive the joy that only Jesus can give to ourselves, our families, our parishes, and to the communities in which we live — in other words, to the world in which we live, move, and have our being. The invitation to all in this holy season of Christmas is simple. As the hymn proclaims, “Let every heart prepare Him room.” In your own heart, home, and neighborhood, prepare Him room, and Jesus will take care of the rest. And for the first time, perhaps in a long time, there truly will be joy in the world.
