May 29, 2020
On Sunday, May 31, the Church will celebrate Pentecost, the gift of the Holy Spirit. It was a grand and holy moment when the Holy Spirit descended upon Jesus’ disciples, formed them as Church and enabled them to undertake the church’s mission of evangelization. For the last two thousand years the mission has been the same, evangelization, proclaiming the Good News of Jesus.

Pentecost, 2020 has additional significance. For the first time in ten weeks, we will be celebrating Mass publicly. Covid-19 has left us starving for the bread that comes down from heaven. During a crisis when we needed it most, Holy Communion has not been available to us.

As the public health crisis continues, it is the responsibility of each of us to do all that we can to mitigate the spread of the virus. We know well the drill: social distance of 6 feet from one another and frequent hand washing. The spiritual drill is more familiar to us: pray, pray and pray. And now we can pray the Eucharist too, albeit with very strict procedures. These procedures are the best way to prevent the spread of the virus. They will seem excessive, strange, awkward and burdensome but we undertake them happily for the good of one another, for the common good. They are a small sacrifice each of us must make in order to protect ourselves and one another. Against the backdrop of the sacrifice Jesus offered for our salvation, these inconveniences are indeed minor.

Plans may continue to change as we assess the procedures, weather and guidance. The plan is to start slowly with a reduced Sunday Mass schedule.
