On behalf of the Pastoral Parish Council (PPC) – we miss you and fellowship with our Parish Community! We hope you are surviving this Covid experience ok, and can’t wait for life and our church community to get back to normal – whatever the new normal may look like.
Our primary focus of Covid so far at MMOC has been the Mass delivery online, e-communications, parishioner phone calls, as well as providing support as needed for fellow parishioners. However, thankfully we now can start moving our efforts towards our parish REOPENING!
The PPC is pleased to provide the following updates on – New Priest and Parish Reopening, including how you can participate in MMOC’s success moving forward:
Fr. Kevin/Our New Priest
As announced by Bishop LeGatt back in late February March, Fr. Kevin’s term with MMOC is ending July 31. He will be missed dearly, and while there has been much desire by many parishioners to find a way to extend his position, and requests made to Bishop LeGatt, I received confirmation from Bishop LeGatt today (May 21) that he will indeed be leaving July 31, and the new priest will be announced on June 15. (Please click here for further details on discussions along the way.)
With the recent announcement that the health authorities are now allowing up to 25 people inside & 50 outside, the archdiocese is also allowing parishes to consider opening in controlled fashion, ensuring Covid rules are met along the way.
PPC’s plan for moving forward
On behalf of the PPC, we invite you to embrace the changes ahead at MMOC with us, to ensure our continued success. We look forward to working with and serving you all in the upcoming months, as we.... GO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THIS WORLD.
