A Friendly Reminder to Our Community
Please remember that the most effective way to prevent the spread of disease are things you do yourself.
  • wash your hands often with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • sneeze and cough into your sleeve
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
  • avoid contact with people who are sick
  • stay home if you are sick.

May we be united in prayers and support one another during this public health crisis. May we pray for protection of our Church, ministries, families, healthcare workers; the recovery of the sick; the souls of the departed and those who have lost loved ones. St. Roch, pray for us!

Lenten Peace,
Paul Yeung
