HOW HOLY CROSS WILL HANDLE PALM SUNDAY
Palms for Palm Sunday will be blessed by Fr. Richard this weekend. The palms will be available for Parishioners at the church when the COVID-19 restrictions are discontinued. In discussion with the Liturgy committee, it was felt this is the best decision. It is important we abide by the directions of the medical experts to continue our vigilance of physical distancing at this critical time of this pandemic. Please celebrate Palm Sunday with the archdiocesan broadcasts or one of the televised Masses being offered and spend extra time with God that day. We will eventually be able to come together again.
Donations for Holy Cross during this Time
If you wish to continue with your donations you could:
Mail your cheque to the church directly. These will be deposited as soon as possible. We will confirm arrival.
You may wish to sign up to use our e-donation system. Contact the office for more information.
Or you may wish to use the Interact offered through the Archdiocese of Regina. Visit their Giving Page at https://archregina.sk.ca/giving for more information.
For the time being, we encourage our parishioners to pray privately at home.
A Parish Census
During this time when many or most of our parishioners are at home we are looking to update our parish records. We will be starting a phoning tree, contacting our families and asking a series of questions. The questioning should take between 5 - 10 minutes. We will looking for information like address changes, phone and email contacts and in some cases removing the adult children that are still listed as living with their parents.
We hope to start this process in the next week or so.
We would greatly appreciate your co-operation. This information allows us to better plan for such things as sacramental training, spiritual education planning right down to the ordering an appropriate amount of palms for Palm Sunday and the number of hosts we would require.
Thank you in advance for your time and assistance. It is much appreciated.
Fr. Richard Jasiak MSF
MORE TO COME. STAY TUNED AND CHECK BACK OFTEN!
