By way of announcements:
1.- There was an exposure to COVID-19 at the parish office in late August. A couple of staff members tested positive, including Fr. Mark. As you may have heard (and a result of this), his surgery has been postponed … but he does have a “re-scheduled date” which is September 17th. He and all other staff are now well and have been released from quarantine by Multnomah County.
Following the appropriate protocols, the parish staff members involved were self-quarantined for 10 days and all of our other parish staff members have been encouraged to work from home. Immediately after receiving this news, we brought in professional cleaners and the church and the parish offices have been sanitized completely.
As a safety note, we continue to encourage everyone to follow all health and safety precautions, including: social distancing, wearing of face coverings, and regular hand washing. We all continue to strive to keep the larger community as healthy as possible, by first encouraging health in our own parish and school families!
Please keep our staff and parishioners in your prayers! We appreciate your support and your care!
If you need something from our parish staff (or the office), you may drop by, but we would encourage you, please, to email or call rather than come in to the office.
2.- Thank you for joining us today and please continue to celebrate virtual Masses each weekend with us! These Masses will continue to be livestreamed here on our YouTube channel.
3.- Thank you, again, to Fr. Pat Hannon, Fr. Todd Molinari, Fr. Augustine Manyama and Fr. Scott Baier for joining us while Fr. Mark is recovering and to our team of essential ministers who have worked so hard to make this possible.
