I sadly have to let you know that all public masses have been suspended until April 13, 2020. Of course, there is a possilbilty it could be extended. Below are the scheduled airings of the Bishops Holy Week services. We watched last Sunday's service on the dnu.org website. Very nice....nicer than tv.
the Chrism Mass on Thursday, April 2. The Mass will be recorded and made available on the diocesan website by 7:00 p.m. The holy oils will be distributed to the parishes at a later time.

- Mass of the Lord's Supper (Thursday, April 9). Video posted by 8:00 p.m.

These are certainly difficult and uncertain times. Since Easter services are not going to be celebrated at St. John's we will not go forward with Easter flower memorials. If you have already given, we can refund or forward it to Christmas flowers. As you also will be aware...this puts a wrinkle in our Sunday Offerings. If you would like to contribute, you can mail your donation to church or to Me (Linda) or go to the holy cross afc website to give on line. I tried it for the first time and it is very easy to do.
Now, to help cheer everyone up--here is a link to the Cookie Bake Video that CUF did at last years cookie bake. Feel free to share.
Every one stay safe and healthy.
