Covid -19 Response Updated 8/6
Caring for the health, safety and spiritual well-being of all parishioners remains a priority in the Diocese of Scranton during the COVID 19 pandemic. Bishop Bambera issued a new letter to the faithful on August 6th that strongly recommends that parishioners wear a mask while attending Mass due to the Delta variant. He has also requested that all priests, deacons and extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion wear masks while distributing Holy Communion, regardless of their vaccination status.
Mass will continue to be shared online. We strongly urge those who may be most vulnerable to serious impacts of the disease to prayerfully consider their health before deciding to attend Mass. The dispensation from attending Mass will be lifted August 15th.
We, the people of Holy Rosary Parish, are committed through our baptism to continue the ministry of Jesus Christ in our own times and place. As God's family, we are committed to living the Gospel through the celebration of the Eucharist and the other sacraments, faithfully presenting and living the teachings of the Church, and to love as Jesus loved, especially in regard to the poor, the needy and the troubled.
