Most of us heard by now that Archbishop Allen Vigneron has extended the General Dispensation for attendance at Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation until Saturday, March 13, 2021. After that, the General Dispensation will no longer be in effect. However, Particular Dispensations will still be in place for those who need it. A copy of the Archbishop’s letter is linked below.
One of the blessings of the General Dispensation is that those in the affected groups could stay at home without incurring any guilt for not coming to church. Unfortunately, several parishioners misinterpreted the General Dispensation as a perpetual “snow day,” thinking the Church was saying, “don’t come to church at all!” This was never the intent. All able-bodied people, including those over 65 years old and including those who are pregnant are still expected to come to Sunday Mass if they are in reasonably good health.
Our sanitizing efforts will continue beyond March 13th, which includes wearing face masks, social distancing in line and in the pews, hand sanitizing, and the liturgical changes that have been in place to avoid skin contact and the spreading of the pandemic – no bringing up the Offertory gifts, no hand holding during the Our Father, no physical exchange of the Sign of Peace, no sharing of the Communion Cup, singing while still wearing the face covering, etc.
FAMILIES OF PARISHES UPDATE…
The Wave One Families of Parishes are well under way in preparing for their establishment on July 1, 2021. The Wave Two Families, which includes St. Martin de Porres, will not start the process until after July 1, 2021. More info in the upcoming weeks. Moderator assignments are complete for the Wave One Families.
LENTEN ALMSGIVING CUPS…
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we will not be using the Almsgiving Cups as we have in past years. You are strongly encouraged to put aside whatever money you save during Lent, and perhaps donate that to a favorite charity at the end of Lent. Depending on what restrictions are still in place near the end of Lent, you may also save your donations for St. Martin’s outreach projects to help the needy. More information will be given on that at a later date.
SPEAKING OF FINANCES…
Also linked below is a six-month financial report summary of your very generous support of your Spiritual Home. Thanks to your consistent generosity, along with the financial guidance and planning of Dawn Peters, our parish bookkeeper, and Mike Garcia, the Chair of our Parish Finance Council, prudent cuts were made in our operating budget to keep it balanced. Your financial sacrifices keep us going! Thank you and God bless you for your responsible Christian stewardship! I am one very grateful pastor!
