FESTIVAL COMMITTEE

It is with sad hearts we share the news that the Festival Committee has voted to suspend our Annual Festival due to the rising COVID numbers.  The decision did not come lightly or without a great deal of thought and prayer.  Safety to every person from visitor to worker was, is and always will be our main concern and priority.  We are hopeful, but sadly, the rising infection rate, impossibility of disinfection of surfaces and mask order has forced us to make a decision for what is best for us, the community and guests.

We will be having our Grand Raffle!

As of now, the drawing date will remain the same, Father's Day.  Tickets will be availabe for pick-up starting April 24th in the Narthex.  Please be aware of social distancing.  One of our Committee members will be available 1 hour prior to all Masses to accommodate you safely.

If you have neighbors or friends that still feel unsafe attending Mass, please pick-up their tickets.  We look forward to being together as one big family agains soon.

Please be safe, take care of you and take care of each other.

In peace, love and much hope,
Your Festival Committee

    A Few Words from Fr. Dariusz..

 

SIXTH SUNDAY OF EASTER

I would like to wish my best to all mothers.  Mothers are very special for us.  We love, honor, and respect them.  Because of their acceptance of us, we want to thank them for their love, and sacrifices they have made to raise us.  May the Lord Jesus, and His Mother Mary, who is the Mother of all of us bless our mothers, those who are with us.  Those of our mothers who are not with us any longer, who have been taken from us, may the Lord grant them eternal peace and happiness

I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate those 5 children who made their First Communion last Saturday.  I am very proud of you.  I wish you my best and may the Lord always be in your hearts.  I would like to thank your teachers for teaching you about Jesus in the Eucharist and for preparing for this special day in your lives.

In today's First Reading St. Peter, the First Pope of the Roman Catholic Church gave us three spiritual messages: First of all, when Cornelius, the centurion of the Roman cohort fell at St. Peter's feet and worshipped him, he was made to stand up and to stop it.  As St. Peter indicated, he was not a god, but he was a mortal.

Secondly, St. Peter said that God shows no partiality.  He created us all equal in His image.  We all have been created with a soul and a body.  The Catholic Church teaches us that we do have a soul.  The soul is the innermost aspect of man, that which is of greatest value to Him, that by which He is most especially in God's image.  Soul signifies the spiritual principle of man.

In view of the fact that each person, male or female, has a soul and body, God has shown no partiality.

Thirdly, St. Peter tells us that the Sacrament of Baptism is not reserved for God's people of the Old Testament.  Christ died for all of us.  And the proof is the fact that the Holy Spirit poured out His gifts on the Gentiles as much as on God's chosen people of the Old Testament.  The Spirit of God does not show partiality.

In the Reading, we read that God loves us abundantly and gives endlessly to us.  He shows no partiality.  He created us equal with a soul and body.  He does not look at the age, gender, race or nationality of a person.  God sent His beloved Son Jesus to die on the cross for the remission of the sins of all those who will accept Him through perseverance in their living faith and the Sacrament of Baptism.

In the Second Reading, John commands us to love one another because God is love.  If God can give us the best of all what He possesses as His sign of love, can we not as His children do the same thing? Can we not shine in our love by giving generously to all in need?

In today's Gospel, Jesus says that is we keep His Commandments, we will abide in His love just as He has kept His Father's Commandments and abided in His love.  We should obey the Commandments of God and abide in His love for the joy of Jesus to be in us so our joy may be complete.

God bless you all, 

Fr. Dariusz

Statement from Archbishop Vigneron

Regarding the Expiration of the General Dispensation

"Sunday Mass is an important part of the life of every Catholic. We have a grave obligation to attend Mass every Sunday and holy day of obligation unless we are prevented from doing so by a serious obstacle. During the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic has created an environment of significant instability that required relaxing the dispensation from this serious obligation for all Catholics in the Archdiocese of Detroit.

For the past 10 months our parishes have learned how to safely and reverently celebrate Mass for anyone who was able to come. Now, as cases of COVID are dropping and the rate of vaccination is increasing, it is time for more of us to return to Mass. The obligation to attend Sunday Mass has returned for most Catholics this weekend. There are still particular dispensations for those who remain at a higher risk of infection or illness, so it may be a while for some of our brothers and sisters to return. 
 
As we welcome more people back to our churches, we want to keep in mind the need for all of us to be patient with and supportive of each other. As an act of charity toward others, it is important that we continue to maintain social distancing and wear face-coverings at indoor events – including Mass. Exceptions are made for small children but for adults, face coverings are required.

Pastors and parish staffs have been asked to help the faithful as they come back to Mass by reminding them of these directives, so that all will feel safe as they join us for Mass and receive the Holy Eucharist. 

We know that this can be a challenge for some people, but your cooperation and support is a great spiritual and practical help, opening the doors for more people to safely and reverently participate at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. To those of you returning today:

Welcome back and let us prepare ourselves for the Mass."

NEW GUIDELINES

~ UPDATED APRIL, 2021 ~

 For people attending Mass and other services at

Our Lady of the Angels Parish

 

The general obligation to attend Mass on Sunday and Holy Days of Obligation became effective Saturday, March 13, 2021.  While the general dispensation is removed there are special instances where the dispensation will continue. Please do not attend Mass in the following circumstances:

1.  You are ill or you have underlying conditions or are in a high-risk catagory.
2.  You have good reason to think you might be asymptomatic of a contagious illness (e.g.. you were in recent contact with someone who tested positive for a contagious illness such as COVID or influenza).
3.  You care for the sick, homebound, or infirmed.
4.  You are pregnant.
5.  Those 65 years of age or older (per the CDC's recommendation of high-risk individuals).
6.  You cannot attend Mass through no fault of your own (e.g.. no Mass is offered, you are infirmed, or, while wanting to go, you are prevented  for some reason you cannot control (e.g. your ride did not show up, the Church was at capacity).
7.  If you have significant fear or anxiety of becoming ill by being at Mass.


IF YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS SIMILAR TO FLU OR YOU DO NOT FEEL GOOD,

DO NOT COME TO CHURCH.


You MUST wear a mask at all time in order to enter the buildings.  You MUST practice social distancing. 


If you come to Church with your family members, you MUST practice social distancing while taking a seat in Church, unless otherwise stated.  Avoid touching unnecessary things in Church.

If it is possible bring your own hand sanitizer with you.  (You can also bring your own wet wipes and gloves if you need them).  If you bring gloves, wet wipes, etc, do not leave them in the pews.  Take them home with you or dispose them on the way out.  DO NOT LEAVE THEM IN YOUR PEWS!

As AOD has updated COVID guidelines, the Sunday Mass Schedule will revert back to our original weekend schedule:

Weekend Masses will be celebrated on Saturday at 4 pm, Sunday at 9:30 am and 11:30 am.

A recording of our Saturday Mass will be available after 6:00pm every Saturday; please use the link on our website: loacc.org to view Mass.  Daily Masses will be celebrated on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings at 8:45am.  If there is a funeral, the morning Mass will be canceled.

Regarding distribution of Communion

If you are a Eucharistic Minister and wish to distribute communion during Mass, you must be fully vaccinated and willing to follow AOD guidelines.  You must meet with Fr. Dariusz prior to being placed on the schedule.  Please contact the parish office to arrange a meeting.

At this time only a priest will be distributing communion. Before you receive ommunion, please  bow 6 feet away from the priest, say amen, remove your mask and the priest places the Eucharist in your hand (YOU CANNOT WEAR GLOVES WHEN RECEIVNG COMMUNION!)

There are marks on the floor to help you with social distancing while receiving Communion.

I highly discourage anyone from receiving Communion on a tongue. I will need to wash my hand every time I give Communion on a tongue.

Regarding votive candles. 
You can now light candles in the Church.  You MUST sanitize your hands before and after lighting any candles.

Confessions
Confessions are by Appointment Only.  You will need to stay in your car with your mask on to confess your sins.  Face to face option only.  Please call the office to schedule an appointment.

Leaving the Church

One of the ushers or the priest will be directing parishioners to leave the church by aisle making sure social distancing takes place.

When you get home please wash your hands.

In the end, I hope this can help us to stay safe. There might be other changes taking place regarding our safety. I will try to adjust when I see where such changes are needed.  Thank you all for your cooperation and understanding during this time.

Liturgical Directive Update:

1.  Holy Water: The fonts and containers maybe filled and used by the faithful at the discretion of the pastor.  The CDC has stated that there is no evidence COVID can spread to people through water.

2.  The Sign of Peace: Those within the same family/household can offer a physical sign; those between households are invited to offer each other a remote/visual sign.

God’s blessing to all of you.
Fr. Dariusz
