COVID-19 Update from Fr. Scott and The Archdiocese of Boston: March 13, 2020 @ 4:00pm

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

As we continue to follow the guidance of public health officials - local, state, national, and world - and the directives of the Archdiocese of Boston in the effort to contain COVID-19 (coronavirus), the Church's unique contribution to this effort is our spiritual resources. Please join in praying this prayer by Pope Francis:

O Mary, you shine continuously on our journey as a sign of salvation and hope. We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick. At the foot of the Cross you participated in Jesus’ pain, with steadfast faith. You, Salvation of the (all) People, know what we need. We are certain that you will provide, so that, as you did at Cana of Galilee, joy and feasting might return after this moment of trial. Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform ourselves to the Father’s will and to do what Jesus tells us: He who took our sufferings upon Himself, and bore our sorrows to bring us, through the Cross, to the joy of the Resurrection. Amen.

We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God. Do not despise our pleas – we who are put to the test – and deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.

Following Governor Baker’s Emergency Order concerning the Commonwealth’s response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak Cardinal O’Malley has established the following policies for the Archdiocese of Boston effective immediately:

  • All Masses and religious services in all Archdiocesan parishes, missions, and campus ministries are suspended until further notice. This begins at 4:00pm on Saturday afternoon, March 14. To be clear, there are to be no vigil masses. Baptism, Confirmations, weddings and funerals may proceed but attendance should be limited to only immediate family.

  • The Cardinal has issued a dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass during this time to the Catholics of the Archdiocese of Boston.

Cardinal O’Malley encourages Catholics, and all people who would find it helpful, to participate in the daily and Sunday Mass by way of Catholic TV. Schedules and access to the televised Mass and rebroadcasts are available at www.WatchtheMass.com or www.catholictv.org and by consulting local cable providers or network listings. Please also make use of this Prayer for a Spiritual Communion:

My Jesus, I believe You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

All religious education and Confirmation Preparation classes and related activities are cancelled until further notice. We are working to put together resources for parents and guardians, the first and best teachers of their children in matters of faith, to continue the faith formation of the children in the home, the domestic church. Adults participating in LiveLent are encouraged to continue to do so at home.

During this challenging time, please check on your neighbors, especially those who are at elevated risk. If parishioners, staff or I can be of any assistance, please contact us.

Your brother in Christ,
Fr. Scott
