Message from Rev. Christopher Micale

(updated 5/22/20)

Dear Parishioners, 

On Friday Governor Scott announced that churches may open with up to 25% capacity this weekend.  Although this is wonderful news, the Diocese of Burlington is remaining committed to opening up for public Masses beginning June 1st for daily Masses and June 6/7 for Sunday Masses.  This decision remains the policy of the Diocese because more time is needed to provide parish staff with the protocols to be followed to re-open.  Therefore we will not begin any public celebration of Masses until June 1st.

Bishop Coyne thanks you for your patience in this matter and we ask that you watch for an email notice containing protocols for being able to re-open by the end of May.  The office will be closed on Monday for the holiday, but don't hesitate to call with questions during normal business office hours, Tuesday - Thursday 9-4 at 899-4632. 

Stay well and God bless,
Rev. Christopher Micale

Effective Friday, March 20, all regularly scheduled public celebrations of the Catholic Mass, sacraments and devotions are suspended until further notice. Priests of the Diocese of Burlington will continue to celebrate Mass privately for the intentions of their community and the Church.  Baptisms, funerals and weddings may take place but will be strictly limited in attendance to immediate family members.

In addition, all Religious Education classes, council meetings, Bible Studies, and Holy Week Liturgies are canceled until further notice.

Spiritual Communion Prayer

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the
Most Holy Sacrament.
I love you above all things and I desire to receive you
in my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally,
Come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace you as if you were already there
And unite myself wholly to you.
Never permit me to be separated from you.

The Parish Office will be closed beginning Thursday, March 26. If you need help, please call Fr. Micale during his office hours above.   We encourage you to check our website for any updated information as well as to read Father's weekly homily.

If you wish to continue to make your weekly donations you may do so through the mail. Our mailing address is PO Box 3, Underhill Center, VT 05490.  If you would like to give online, please call the office or visit the Online Giving website.

Plans are moving forward to “live-stream” a local celebration of the Mass daily beginning with this Sunday, March 22 at 10 AM. Please check the Diocesan website at https://www.vermontcatholic.org/covid-19/ for all TV Mass options, resources to keep Sunday Holy and the latest updates.

We ask that you pray daily the Pope’s prayer to the Virgin Mary (below) for protection from this pandemic.
