Message from Bishop Dewane
Effective on Friday, March 20th, regularly scheduled celebration of daily and Sunday Masses and other liturgical events at St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Church are suspended until Easter.
This difficult but necessary response is meant to help contain the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Funeral and Wedding Masses will still be permitted. Individual visitation to the church for prayer is unfortunately not permitted per the Diocese of Venice. All parish events and ministries are suspended as well – e.g. prayer groups, Eucharistic Adoration, bible studies, Stations of the Cross, etc.
Private Masses will be celebrated by the priests for the scheduled Mass intentions. We will plan to livestream Masses during this time. Further info will be coming so please revisit the website for more updates.
