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..

 

THE ELEVENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

I would like to take this opportunity to thank one of our parishioners who offered to buy jackets for men and women at our parish who are willing to wear these jackets with the name of Our Lady of the Angels.  The wish of the sponsor is to let the name of our parish be known.  He wishes to evangelize our Catholic Church and our Christian values.  If you are NOT going to wear them and just want an extra jacekt, please do not take it.  To do that would miss the purpose of this very generous gift.  There will be forms available for you to fill out with your name and phone number and the size of your jacket.  All sizes will be available.  Once again, I would like to thank this very generous parishioner for these jackets.

Also Father's Day is approaching very fast.  Please pick-up your tickets.  Since we have no Festival this year, we rely on the sale of those tickets.  Thank you very much for your support and very generous contributions to Our Lady of the Angels Parish.

In today's Gospel, Mark gives us a collection of parables, most of which deal with the growth of seed.  They serve as a commentary on what has been happening in Jesus' proclamation of the Kingdom.

The prophet Ezekiel foretold that God would take a twig from the top of the cedar and plant it in Zion.  Under God's protective power that twig would grow into a great cedar.  Ezekiel dreamed that God would transplant the exiled people of Israel back to the land of their Fathers.  He glimpsed a future son of David whose kingdom would be universal.

The promise is fulfilled in Jesus who ushers in the Kingdom of God.  The parables of the seed that grows by itself and the mustard seed were meant to encourage the early Church which was worried about the slow growth of the kingdom.  They were telling the disciples to be patient, to trust, and not to expect instant results.  Through the power of God, from small and insignificant beginnings the kingdom will grow into something great.  Sometimes life calls for a lot of patience and trust if we want to grow in our spiritual life.  We have to make the effort.  At the same time we have to be patient and trust that God's grace will take over.  So let us put our trust in the Lord so we can flourish like trees that are planted by a running stream. 

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

~ NEW COVID LITURGICAL PROTOCOLS ~

 For people attending Mass and other services at

Our Lady of the Angels Parish


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

DO NOT COME TO CHURCH.

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.

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!)

As we continue to make progress against the COVID-19 virus in Southeast Michigan, the following Liturgical restrictions are being amended.  All of these below are at the pastor's discretion, using his best judgment about the needs of and situation at his parish:

1.  Those who are fully vaccinated may wear a face-covering and social distance but are no longer required to do so in churches.

2.  Those who have not been fully vaccinated are to continue wearing face-coverings and to practice social distancing to protect themselves and others in Churches.  Because a parish community - and our society - requires mutual trust and a commitment to the common good each individual is asked to make the best decisions for himself as well as for others.  Parishes do not have the responsibility to verify who is and who is not vaccinated.

3.  Each parish is to provide a portion of the Church - with a size to be determined by the pastor - where social distancing and face-covering are consistently maintained.  This section is for anyone, vaccinated or unvaccinated.

4.  All unvaccinated Catholics are encouraged to consult with their doctor about the vaccines.  Resources to assist Catholics in understanding the moral use of COVID vaccines can be found at aod.org/vaccines.

5.  The Sign of Peace may resume with the normal wording, "Offerte vobis pacem / Let us offer each other the sign of peace," allowing parishioners and families to make their own determinations about how widely to share some sign of peace.

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.

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.

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