Eliminating the Sign of Peace: As we enter the flu season, the public has been warned of the severity of this year’s flu strain. In order to do our part to curtail the spread of the virus, we will discontinue the “Sign of Peace” until the threat of the flu season has passed. We have also encouraged the ushers to refrain from shaking hands at the door to lessen the spread of germs. Just a reminder to anyone who feels ill. Please do not receive the Blood of Christ from the cup, especially if you are coughing or sneezing. Finally, the most charitable thing anyone can do who is feeling ill is to stay home from Mass. If a person is feeling sick he/she is not obligated to attend Mass.
Taking Communion to the Homebound: Please remember that only those parishioners who are trained Ministers of Communion to the homebound are permitted to take the Eucharist to someone who is infirmed. It has come to our attention that people who have never been trained or commissioned as Eucharist Ministers to the sick have frequently been removing the Sacrament from the Church. Sometimes, on rare occasions, the pastor may ask a friend or spouse to take communion to someone who is ill on a one-time basis but this is only in rare and special circumstances. All parishioner have a responsibility to make sure that the Eucharist is treated with the proper respect and dignity and this can only be done if trained Eucharistic Ministers are taking Communion out of the Church.
Communion Ministers for Homebound Needed: In Matthew’s Gospel Jesus asks, “When did you visit the sick and care for them.” Are you looking for a way to not only fulfill Christ’s command to care for the sick but also to receive the satisfaction of offering comfort to those parishioners in need? Come and join the ministry team that takes Holy Communion to the lonely, sick and shut-in Catholics in our nursing homes and private residences. There is not a huge time commitment involved in this ministry. You can help once or twice a month for a couple of hours. Our Sunday visitation team needs some extra help with this ministry so your willingness to serve on Sunday afternoons would be appreciated. Those wishing to be Extraordinary Ministers of Communion to the sick must meet all the Diocesan requirements to be a minister and approved by the Pastor. It is preferable if you are already a Communion Minister but not required. If you are interested, contact Fr. Bill or the Parish Office 801-479-1112 and we will train you in this important ministry.

Adoration: “Rejoice in hope, be patient under trail, persevere in prayer.” (Rom 12:12) A person without hope will suffer depression, disappointment, discouragement. On the other hand, hope will raise our focus above the changes and challenges of life to a peace and joy which the world cannot give. In all of this we can hear Jesus say to us: “Trust me.”
