HEALTH AND WELLNESS COMMITTEE COVID-19 UPDATE:

Millions of people in the United States have received COVID-19 vaccines, and these vaccines have undergone the most intensive safety monitoring in U.S. history.  Key Things to Know About COVID-19 Vaccines:

  • COVID-19 vaccines are effective at helping protect against severe disease and death from variants of the virus that causes COVID-19.
  • If you are fully vaccinated you can resume many activities. You should wear a mask indoors in public or if you are in an outdoor area around other people.

COVID-19 vaccines teach our immune systems how to recognize and fight the virus that causes COVID-19. It typically takes 2 weeks after being fully vaccinated for the body to build protection against the virus that causes COVID-19.

If you have not yet been vaccinated, please schedule your vaccine today.  Do it for yourself. Do it for those you love. Vaccinations are available at the following pharmacies: CVS, Kroger’s, Sam’s Club, Walmart, Eppy’s. Call to schedule your vaccination today.

Eucharistic Adoration

Eucharistic Adoration

Eucharistic Adoration will take place each Wednesday from 9:00 AM to 6:15 PM (between the Masses) every Wednesday.  Please contact Shirley Kim 304-573-7307  if you would like to commit to praying before Our Lord at a specific time each Wednesday.

Inspired to care for the poorest by her daily Holy Hours of prayer before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta said, “Perpetual adoration is the most beautiful thing you could ever think of doing. People are hungry for God.”

IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR ALL PARISHIONERS! 

Bishop Brennan revitalized the Diocesan Pastoral Council (DPC) in 2020.  Three members from each of the diocese’s six vicariates were elected to serve.  The DPC has been meeting actively throughout 2021.  The Bishop has directed the Council to organize their energies in three distinct areas:  peace and justice; pastoral concerns; and lay life and ministry.  Members of the DPC have determined that a crucial starting point for their work would be to hear the perspective of the parishioners across every parish, mission, and chapel in the diocese.  A brief survey has been developed to gather this information.  As our shepherd, the Bishop desires to listen to God’s people.  This will assist him in developing a deeper understanding of the hearts, minds, and needs of the faithful.  Please use this link to access the survey. The link is also on the church’s Facebook page, and a printed survey is available in both vestibules. Completing the survey should take 7 to 10 minutes. Survey will run for two full weeks until September 19.  ALL are highly encouraged to participate!
