Dear Parishioners and Guests of St. Noel:
This weekend, parishes across the Diocese will open their doors for what’s being referred to as a “soft opening” for the public celebration of Mass. For those who will attend, please note, a face mask must be worn upon your entry into the church and remain on throughout the liturgy, apart from the moment of reception of Holy Communion. Please see the directives linked below to prepare yourself for what is to be expected for those who return. All of what we have been asked to put in place is for the sake of the common good at this time. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
We are really encouraging you to view or print the worship aid for this weekend’s celebration of Pentecost. Given the nature of this solemnity and the role in which languages are featured, the Second Reading will be proclaimed in Italian and the Universal Prayer (Prayer of the Faithful) will be prayed in seven different languages. The translations are prepared for you in in the worship aid for your comprehension and to help foster your participation.
Know of my continued prayers as celebrate the culmination of the Easter Season!
