An announcement from Fr. Sanjai about the reception of the Holy Communion effective 2/4/22:


Because of the diminishing cases of Covid and the Omicron variant in our area, the reception of Holy Communion on the tongue is reinstated with immediate effect. We ask, that if you choose to receive Holy Communion on the tongue, if you can, please try to come at the end of the Holy Communion line, as has been done in many other parishes. We know that the decision to temporarily restrict the reception of Holy Communion to the hand only has been difficult for some of you. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding and look forward to the end of this pandemic. Thank you.


Effective Saturday, June 5th, 2021 – we will be LIVESTREAMING only 1 MASS on the weekends to our parish facebook page.   It will be Saturdays at 4pm.   This video will remain on our Facebook page throughout the weekend   

There will be NO live-streams for Sunday Masses. We WILL NOT be distributing Holy Communion after 4pm Mass or Sunday 12pm Mass by the elevator.  If you watch online and are homebound – please call the Parish Office to schedule an Eucharistic Minister to come and give you communion at your home.

We encourage those watching our live-streams to return to Mass as it is very safe. After each Mass the Church is thoroughly sanitized, seating is socially distanced and masks are to be worn by those in the building. We encourage you to return to our house of worship.

 


Notice from the Diocese:

Cremation and Proper Handling of Cremated Remain

Your Choices Don’t Stop With Cremation

Sadly, some of us have experienced the death of a loved one during this COVID-19 pandemic.  Many have chosen to have their loved one’s remains cremated, whether by choice or necessity.  Keep in mind, the Church’s teaching recommends cremated remains be given the same respect and reverence as the full body, as cremated remains are the body of the deceased in a changed form and should be given the same respect.  Cremated remains should be buried or inurned on sacred grounds.  With the pandemic affecting so many, you may not have been able to bury your loved one’s remains.  It’s never too late to bury cremated remains.  The staff at South Jersey Catholic Cemeteries is here to help and guide you.

When choosing cremation, there are many choices available including:

Ground Burial ,Granite or Glass Niches ,Crypts,Addition to Family Lot or Crypt in Cremation Garden

Visit SouthJerseyCatholicCemeteries.org to learn more or call us at 855-MyPrePlan (855-697-7375) and a member of our staff will gladly assist you.
