Dear Parishioners and Friends of St. Joseph’s,

Since March, we have, as a parish, moved from Mass and parish life as usual, to Masses celebrated privately and live-streamed, to Distribution of Holy Communion outside of Mass, to Mass celebrated publically -but certainly not as usual. 

Since June it has been a great blessing for many of our parishioners to return to daily and Sunday Mass at the Cathedral, but unfortunately, some are still not able to return to Mass for various reasons. 

Throughout this pandemic we have seen and experienced how difficult and sad it was, and is, for active Catholics to be away from the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and how much of a joy it is to be at Mass.  As Masses resumed in churches in the diocese, each parish had to take precautions to work as diligently as possible to do the things that would help reduce the potential spread of germs or the virus while still maintaining the reverence and decorum of the Church’s Liturgy which has been of utmost importance for our Bishop.

In the midst of all this, I am grateful for the diligence that parishioners have shown in using caution when coming and attending Mass, for all of us who are ever more mindful of washing our hands, covering our mouths and keeping some space between people.  I am grateful that we have a church that is so large that it is possible to keep appropriate distance between households while in pews.  I am grateful for the blessing of the faithful who come to the Cathedral for the Sacraments day after day and week after week, and grateful for those who at this time need to participate from home and make a Spiritual Communion.

These past months have been difficult for all of us, but Jesus has been with us and remains with us; and what a blessing to know that.  I have said it from the beginning of my assignment here, please, we need to pray for each other daily, pray for our parish, pray for your priests, that we may grow in faith, hope and love. And of course, pray for a great healing in our land.

St. Joseph, Pray for us.

Fr. Jason Jalbert
