Mass on Sundays

St Vincent St Joseph Lenten Mass schedule

Mass On Sundays:

  • Hear and view live stream of the Mass in the St. Vincent’s Hall.  Remember to social distance and wear a mask.
  • Hear Mass in your car on the radio station 105.3.
  • Masses are live streamed in the hall

Holy Communion will be distributed at these places during communion time.

You may also watch Mass livestream in your home.

Other Information

We strongly encourage parishioners 65 and older, and those with underlying medical issues, to stay home and participate in our online livestream Masses or hear Mass in your car on the radio station 105.3. Those who are or have recently been ill with coughs, fevers, breathing troubles MUST STAY HOME out of concern for the others.

A MASK is highly suggested when you come to Mass. Those age 7 and older are asked to wear a mas from the time you exit your vehicle until you return. The mask protects OTHERS and helps them feel safer. Our of charity, wear a mask. Here is a good video: https://youtu.be/oZUE1awVj3Y

PERSONAL SANITIZER: You are asked to bring your personal hand sanitizer. We suggest you use it once seated, prior to communion, immediately after communion, and once you return to your vehicle.

COMMUNION: Please leave your mask on as you approach the Eucharist. As you approach the priest or Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion, lower your mask and receive the Host. Here is a good video: https://youtu.be/aw_Gr9s5lKg

COLLECTION/TITHE: Thank you to those who have been faithfully sending in their collection envelopes. It has been much appreciated and much needed. You may donate online to St Joseph at https://www.stjoeshelby.org/online-giving/ and to St. Vincent at http://svdpcc.com/. A box will be available at Masses into which you may put your offering. There will be no ushers.

OTHER MEASURES:

• Communion from the Chalice remains suspended
• The Sign of Peace is still suspended
• There are to be no gatherings before or after Masses, inside or outside
• The gifts will not be carried forward
• There will not be a choir at any Mass
• There will be no Missalettes/Hymnals available
• The choir loft is closed to the public.
• St. Joseph Church remains unlocked for personal prayer every day from 8am – 8pm

The health of our family is an important priority, second to eternal salvation! If we are going to err, it is going to be on the side of caution. We ask you to respect and protect those you encounter at Mass. There will be challenges and frustration as we work through the guidelines provided for our protection, now and in the future. We appreciate your understanding and support. You are in our thoughts and prayers and we ask for a place in yours!

Ash Wednesday is February 17th – We have been taught that the three things we should do during Lent have to do with Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving. The Church as a whole and our parishes try to help us do these things. This Lent we are offering something you can do wherever you have your smart phone. Download the Flocknote App on your phone. You will have many things you can watch and/or listen to that will inform you and lead you to prayer right at your fingertips. Fasting and Almsgiving can be taken care of by making at least one small simple meal each week and saving the money for the Rice Bowl collection which you can bring to church and place in the large rice bowl near the tabernacle at St. Vincent Church. It will be there all during Lent.

Pray for Our Seminarians

We all know that we need more Priests. One thing we can do to help the situation is to pray for our seminarians. The Archdiocese is helping us to do just that. Each parish is given a specific seminarian to pray for. St. Vincent’s Seminarian is Liam Hosty. His home parish is St. Barnabas Parish in Indianapolis. He is in his first year of Theology, so he has several years to go before ordination. There are prayer cards with Liam’s picture on them by the doors of Church and in the Hall. Please take one to remind yourself to pray for more priests and especially, Liam.

Thank You..Thank You!

Thank Kim Knight, Nicky Meriwether, and Kenny
Zauss. These men worked for days and nights
last week so we could have heat in St. Vincent
Church on Sunday.
