Re-Opening Assumption Church - Volunteers

Volunteers

Dear volunteers,

On behalf of our parishioners, I would like to thank you for volunteering your time to support our ministries and programs at Assumption and Immaculate Conception Parishes.

We as  parishes, have continued to respond to the needs of our parishioners and the larger community.  This could not have happened without you, each of you, who have given so freely of your time, your talents, your gifts and your prayer. It is only by working together, as a community based on Christ’s love and mercy that we can continue to exist and spread His message.

Even in the best of times, the Church cannot function and grow without the individuals giving (physically, spiritually & monetarily) as they are able.  As a Catholic Church, we have many responsibilities in a multitude of areas.  We must respond to the needs of the poor, the sick, the dying and the grieving.  We need to develop the faith of our children and youth, assist young families in raising their children in the faith.  We need to be good stewards of our physical space and our finances – from cleaning the windows and pews to fixing the parking lot to paying the electric bill. And while doing all this and more, we cannot neglect the most important duty of the Church – spreading the Word of God and the teachings of Jesus.  It is simply not possible for only a few to do it all!  The early Christian communities learned this and we continue in this tradition.  

We work together for the good of all it is becaause of the love and generosity of the people of our parishes that we are and will continue to be a true Christian community. Once again, I really appreciate your efforts. thank you for your time. We hope you will continue to support our communities.

Reception of Communion on the Tongue – During Coronavirus Pandemic

  1. Parish Reopening Co-Leadership Teams,

For well-founded reasons the liturgical guidelines during the pandemic limited distribution of Holy Communion in the hand. Pastors are still urged to encourage the faithful to receive in the hand, as it is the safest way to distribute/receive Holy Communion. However, out of respect for those who insist on receiving on the tongue and with the hope of avoiding conflicts at this most sacred time of the Holy Mass, an exception may be made in a given parish at the full discretion of the pastor, and only in accord with a strict observance of the procedure provided here.

Procedure for Distributing Holy Communion on the Tongue

a. Communicants move forward to the designated station in single file maintaining six feet between each person assisted by markers on the floor;

  1. The minister distributing Holy Communion wearing a mask/face shield, sanitizes his / her hands, either from a nearby table, or offered by an usher;
  2. The communicant sanitizes his/her hands from a table or from sanitizer offered by usher, removes the strap of the mask or face covering from one ear, letting it hang from the other ear and exercises care not to touch the face, clothing or any other surface after sanitizing the hands;
  3. After having sanitized his/her hands, the communicant approaches the priest or extraordinary minister, and receives the Host on the tongue;
  4. The communicant steps six feet to the side, replaces the mask over the mouth and nose and returns to his/her seat;
  5. The minister puts the ciborium on a near-by table and sanitizes his / her hands, rubbing hands together and until they are dry (at least for 20 seconds each time). This must be done after each communicant receives;
  6. The minister picks up the ciborium and begins the process again;
  7. All other guidelines about masking, face shields and other preparatory actions before distribution remain in force.

In Christ,
Pastor Fr. Bader
