FROM THE DESK OF FR. BONA: A happy St. Stephen day to all of you! May he continue to intercede for us. Today I would like to offer a liturgical catechesis related to the distribution of the Eucharist. The use of extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion has always been strictly regulated by the Church. The permission for their use was given in cases when the ordinary ministers are impeded or when the Mass would be unduly prolonged. Unduly means around 30 minutes. Concerning online livestreaming: I am planning also, at times, to have streaming from here (St. Elizabeth Church), but I need to figure out the logistics of it, as I do not have much time between the two Masses. Once I know more, I will update you. God bless! Fr. Bona

CONFESSIONBefore Mass and by appointment.

PLEASE PRAY FOR THE DECEASED: for Stephen Kálmán Hegedeős, and especially for Juhász Erzsébet whose Funeral Mass will be this Thursday, August 27 at 11AM at St. Elizabeth Church.

PLEASE PRAY FOR THE SICK, especially, Jay Kovács, Kathy Szabó and Anna Melega. May our Gracious Healer grant them healing of soul and body.

COVID 19 DIRECTIVES: Since the reopening of the Catholic Churches here in Ohio, some of the directives which we must still adhere to—the faithful are obliged to wear a face mask upon entering the church and during the celebration of Mass except for the brief moment of receiving Holy Communion; Seating is to be such that 6 feet of distancing should be maintained between members of one household and another.  No hand shaking for the sign of peace. Anyone not feeling well or the elderly and vulnerable, should stay home. The obligation to attend Mass on Sunday is still suspended.
