                       A FEW WORDS FROM FR. DARIUSZ  

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA!

Independence Day, commonly known as July 4th or the Fourth of July, commemorates the Continental Congres' adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.  The document primarily written by Thomas Jefferson, served as a formal announcement that the 13 American colonies were no longer part of the British Empire and would be from now on free and independent states.  The Declaration of Independence contains important ideas about the American system of government.  It states that all people are equal and have "certain unalienable rights."  These are rights that no government can change or take away.  Thomas Jefferson wrote that the American colonies should be independent because Great Britain did not respect the basic rights of people in the colonies.  He believed in the idea that a government exists only if the people think it should.  He believed that in the idea that the people create their own government and consent.  This idea is called "consent of the government."  If the government creates laws that are fair and protect people, then people will agree to follow those laws.  The Declaration of Independence lists three well known to us rights that the Founding Fathers consider to be natural and "unalienable."  They are the right to LIFE, LIBERTY, and PURSUIT of HAPPINESS.

The 4th of July is typically celebrated with parades, fireworks, ceremonies, barbecues and family gatherings.  Unfortunately this year we will not be able to participate in those major events because of Coronavirus.  This should not stop us from showing our gratitude to God for blessing us and our nation.

Every day thousands leave their homeland to come to the "land of the free and the home of the brave" so they can begin their American Dream.  I am proud to say that I was one of them.  On July 1st, 2010 I pledged my "allegiance to the flag of the United States and to the Republic for which it stands.  One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

This will be my 10th, 4th of July celebrated as a citizen of the United States.  I am very proud to be an American citizen.

Happy Independence Day.  God bless America.  God bless all of us!

Fr. Dariusz

Guidelines

 For people attending Mass and other services at Our Lady of the Angels Parish

~ REVISED ~

If you are 65 y/o or older you are not required to be in church. You can watch Mass on television or on the Internet (if we find a volunteer to do that for us, we will post Masses on the Internet).

 
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. 

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).

Avoid touching unnecessary things in Church.

Since it takes a lot of time to clean the whole Church, the Sunday Mass schedule will be changed.

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

We can only have 66 people in church. Overflow can go to the parish center (there is a limited number of seats 59) Do not come if you do not have a ticket.  For the time being, it is single seating set up which means even family members need to practice social distancing (it may be adjusted in the future)

Each family member needs an individual ticket for the weekend Masses.  You must attend the Mass stated on the ticket.  YOU MAY NOT CHANGE THE DAY.

(There will be different colored tickets for Masses). Mass tickets have now been extended until July 26, 2020.  For the Sunday Mass, we have a limited number of Stand By tickets.  Please come to the Parish Office to get your tickets.

You do not need a ticket to attend daily Mass.  A few pews will be designated for you.  Use those only.  Do not remove any tapes from the restricted area (We do not need to clean the whole Church) Please adapt to this change.  Please do not move any chairs in the Church.

Daily Masses will be celebrated on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings at 8:45 am. If there is a funeral, the morning Mass will be canceled.

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!

Regarding communion
At this time only a priest will be distributing communion. Before you receive communion, you 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.

Regarding donations:
There will be 2 boxes in Church and in the parish center. One will be for Sunday offertory; the other will be for festival tickets. When you come to Church please drop them off in those boxes.

Regarding Mass tickets:
Only registered members qualify for receiving a ticket. If you are not a member yet but attend our services please fill out the form provided on our website and send it back ASAP.

When you call the office do not leave any messages. You must talk to a secretary to reserve a ticket for yourself and your family members. Office hours are now: 9 am to 12 pm and 1 pm to 3 pm, lunch from 12-1PM.

You will be able to pick up your ticket at the office or 1 hour before each Mass until 15 minutes before Mass starts.  Due to pew assignments, please arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the start of Mass, otherwise we will have to give your pew assignment to those with Stand By Tickets.

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.

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

FESTIVAL UPDATE
 

May 15, 2020

To our parish family,

We hope this finds you and your loved ones well. As we have navigated the last several weeks, we have found ourselves in uncharted waters with COVID 19.

After careful consideration, fact finding, and much discussion, the Festival Committee and Fr. Dariusz have found it necessary to cancel our Annual Summer Festival, but know.

WE HAVE MOVED THE DATE OF THE GRAND RAFFLE DRAWING TO.. 

OCTOBER 4, 2020 AT 2 PM. 

This decision did not come easily.  It saddens us to take this step, however, it is in the best interest of not only our parishioners, but our guests as well.  Constant disinfection would be an impossibility, and should social distancing still remain in effect, just not feasible. We did contemplate moving our festival to a later date, however, this would mean Our Lady of the Angels would be stepping on another parish’s festival.

By making the decision to cancel now, we have been able to apply all deposits and licenses to our 2021 annual festival, BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP.

Because the grand raffle tickets were distributed prior to COVID 19, we must have the raffle.  With that, it becomes essential that we sell as many grand raffle tickets to minimally cover the cost of the prizes offered.  New dates for the ticket return incentives will be announced once masses resume.  Please help with purchasing or selling as many tickets as possible.  Extra tickets are available in the parish office when it reopens, and once masses resume, after all masses in the narthex.

 

ALSO, GREAT NEWS...

WE'VE MADE IT EASIER THAN EVER TO BUY THE FESTIVAL RAFFLE TICKETS FOR PARISHIONERS AND NON PARISHIONERS.

Now you can go ONLINE through our secure portal, purchase any amount of Festival Raffle Tickets. Click on the link below, Login, then go to FESTIVAL RAFFLE TICKETS.

Please take care of yourselves, each other and be safe.  We can’t wait for the day when we can gather together to celebrate mass and our friendships.

Until then, may God’s grace and peace be with you all.

 

Robin Partrich and the Our Lady of the Angels Festival Committee
