Dear friends, 

 

Due to tropical storm Hannah which is forecasted to be a minimal hurricane sometime tomorrow just before landfall, we will not be having the Saturday Vigil Mass. There’s some uncertainty as to exactly where and when it will hit our coast, so out of an abundance of caution, we will NOT be offering the Vigil Mass just for this Saturday.

We WILL be offering the Holy Mass Sunday at 8 AM, 10:30 and 12:30pm; however, I encourage you not to risk going through high water on the way to Church.  If it’s unsafe, please turn back and be safe.  God bless you and keep you in His peace and protection.  

With love and prayers,

Fr. Bob 

Dear friends, 
By now, most every one of us knows someone who has been affected by the COVID-19 virus. We are living in a very sad and difficult time.  Our hearts are torn and our eyes watery, as we pour out our hearts to God. As we thank God for the gift of faith which will carry us through this perilous time, let us keep begging Him for more faith as we endure this pandemic together.  

One of the treacherous things about this invisible virus is that it has led too many people to believe that the threat is not real, however by now, I think we all know just how serious of a threat it is to our community.  

Starting tomorrow, the adoration chapel will be locked until further notice.  We will continue to celebrate weekday masses Monday through Friday at 12:15 PM.  Additionally, we will continue to celebrate the 4:30 PM Saturday Vigil and the Sunday 8 AM, 10:30 AM and 12:30 PM Masses.  Don’t forget to bring your facemask to ensure that all worshippers may be protected from the virus.  

Your brother in Christ, 
Fr. Bob

Dear friends, 
I urge all of us to not move about anymore than is completely necessary as the COVID-19 is a silent but dangerous threat.  The more we move about the more the virus spreads.

Due to the alarming and critical increase of COVID-19 in our community we will be doing confessions only by appointment.

The Friday evening and Saturday morning scheduled confession times are now canceled till the COVID-19 cases begin to decline substantially.

If you want to make an appointment for confession, please call the office and the answering service will contact Father RJ or me.  

For those who do make an appointment to celebrate the sacrament of confession it is necessary that you wear a face mask.

Your brother in Christ, 
Fr. Bob 

From Bishop Mulvey:

Yesterday, Governor Greg Abbott issued a statement concerning the wearing of face coverings in the State of Texas.  In counties where there are more than twenty COVID-19 positive cases, people are to wear face coverings in public places.  He highly encourages that face coverings be worn in worship settings.  I want to remind everyone of the importance of wearing face coverings at Mass for the safety of all who attend.  By doing this, we will greatly contribute to slowing the spread of the virus.  I am grateful to you for complying with this request and thank you for this expression of charity!
I pray for you and ask you to pray for me.

+Wm. Michael Mulvey
Bishop of Corpus Christi

My dear friends we must pray for our doctors, nurses and caregivers as they are inundated with an alarming increase of COVID 19  cases.  For all who have been infected and their families, let us pray that God’s strength and grace surround them.   For those who choose to attend Mass, the Bishop along with the Governor highly encourages all participants to wear a face covering not only to protect yourself but in charity to protect those around you.  

I know of many brother priests who have underlying health issues, so please consider wearing a face mask for them.  Remember you are NOT obligated to attend mass all the way through the end of August; however, the priests ARE obligated to celebrate Sunday Masses, so please wear a face mask for them also.

As we cooperate together during this very serious health threat to our beloved community, we will make a difference and we will stand strong against this unseen adversary.  

We are a community of believers, and as such we should practice prudence over panic and faith over fear. We can do our part to flatten the curve by wearing a face covering, social distancing and washing hands. God never abandons us therefore we are a people of hope.

Your brother in Christ,
Fr. Bob

Baptism Classes and Baptisms are CANCELLED due to the alarming increase of Covid-19 in our community. 

Please remember you are dispensed from attending Mass through August 31st.

Also, please join Fr. Bob in prayer for the 25 persons that have Covid-19.  

God bless you and your family during this Pandemic.  Stay safe and vigilant.

Dear Friends,

A SIMPLE ACT OF KINDNESS:  Wear a Mask

I choose to wear the mask so that I don’t spread my germs to you and hopefully you wear a mask so that you do not spread your germs to me.

“It is not healthy to wear a mask” says some people.

If it is unhealthy to wear a mask how do doctors, nurses and all kinds of health caregivers work 12 and 14 hours a day trying to save people during this coronavirus pandemic survive wearing a mask all day?

“I don’t like wearing a mask.”  

Offer up this tiny inconvenience as a small act of kindness for the doctors, nurses and all the many health caregivers to prevent them from having to work 14 to hours 18 hours a day because of an overload of coronavirus patients.  

Love always entails sacrifice.   Perhaps we can offer up the small inconvenience of wearing a mask for those who have died from the Covid virus, those who have had it and who are presently infected.

Too many of our leaders would rather someone die than hurt someone’s feelings by telling them that they have to wear a mask.  I’m not one of them.

Again, it is a simple gesture of kindness to wear a mask in order that we alleviate human suffering and possible death.

I leave you with this one a text I received from a dear friend:

‘If you hate wearing a mask, you’re really not going to like the ventilator.”

Let’s all practice a SIMPLE ACT OF KINDNESS by wearing a mask. 

Peace in Christ, 

Fr. Bob
