Due to the coronavirus pandemic, on the weekend of March 21st/22nd our churches closed their doors and we parishioners gathered in our homes, isolated for our own safety and for the safety of our community, unable to attend Mass, unable to gather.  On April 12th, 2020, for the first time ever, the Pope celebrated Easter Mass without the public present. 

During our time apart, Fr. Phil and Fr. Charlie continued to reflect on the daily readings and continued to prepare a homily for the Sunday gospel.  We started to post these homilies so that their words and insight could continue to be part of your own reflection and prayer.  Although we are now back to Mass, albeit with restrictions, we continue to post these wonderful homilies.
