Fr. Michael Gurnick, Administrator of St. Malachi Parish, shares a message of hope at this time of COVID-19, for the Fourth Sunday of Lent. He understands that people are afraid, and wants you to know that Jesus, the Good Shepherd, is taking care of all of you, even during this dark time.
He encourages parishioners to come together in their homes, at the time that they would normally celebrate Saturday/Sunday Mass, and pray the readings of the day, easily found on the USCCB Website. Also, consider praying with of the many daily Masses which are live-streamed and/or recorded, such as the one provided by our Diocese of Cleveland at SaintJohnCathedral.com.
Additional messages of hope, encouragement, Catholic entertainment for children and adults, and study are available at Formed.org.
Please check the parish website often for support and opportunities for connection and spiritual care.
