Daily Update for Sunday, March 29
Mar 29, 2020
For the next two weeks, the parish office will be closed to the public and minimally staffed to support essential operations and emergency pastoral needs. We will continue to livestream all scheduled Masses to provide for the spiritual needs of our community. Please watch and share these daily updates for additional information or changes.
Distance Learning Website and Video. St. Michael Catholic School has created a site specifically for this period of distance learning. It is the first link under the School menu on our parish homepage, stmcatholicchurch.org. Principal Haller issued an update to all school families, including a “Back to School” video explaining the distance learning plan and process. If you are a StMCS parent, please review these communications. Please pray for our Catholic school students and staff!
Sacraments and Prayer
Confessions Schedule. We announced in yesterday’s update that the Lenten Penance Services at St. Albert and St. Michael have been cancelled.
