Bishop Schlert announces: “As life returns to Normal, it is time to resume our normal lives as faithful Catholics.” Effective August 15 all Catholics in the Diocese of Allentown will once again be obligated to attend Mass on weekends and on holy days of obligation.
All liturgical restrictions are lifted with the exception of the distribution of the Precious Blood and the exchange of the Sign of Peace. Please know Sacred Heart Parish is doing its absolute best to welcome our parishioners back into a safe environment.
No one is required to wear a facemask on diocesan property. Those who wish to continue to wear one are free to do so as well. Sanitizers will still be available throughout the Church for your use.
Bishop Schlert states: “I recognize that the pandemic is not completely over. I understand that a new variant of the virus is causing concern, primarily in other states and countries and primarily among those who have not been vaccinated. I know, too, that there still can be much anxiety associated with the Coronavirus pandemic, including uncertainty about the future.
If you have not yet returned to Mass, now is the time to come home to your parish and be present at the Altar of Sacrifice.”
Thank you for your support during these past sixteen months of the pandemic. The Diocese will continue to update us on matters of this nature as information is available.
Father Bill has been praying through the intercession of Fr. Ciszek (whose Cause is being processed in Rome for Canonization but is in need of a verifiable miracle) since the beginning of the Coronavirus. Would it not be a gift–a needed miracle to find a cure and stop the Coronavirus. If you wish to add your prayer of intercession along with Father Campion, please say this prayer often and just maybe it will be the miracle we need.
PRAYER FOR A FAVOR THROUGH THE INTERCESSION OF FATHER WALTER CISZEK, S.J.
Almighty God, we love, adore and praise You as our Creator and Loving Father. Look with compassion and mercy upon us. Hear our prayer in this time of special need and through the intercession of Father Walter Ciszek, grant the following favor if it is Your Holy Will.
(Mention the Request)
Most loving God, accept our gratitude for hearing this prayer. May the knowledge of the virtues and holiness of Father Walter be recognized and known to provide a lasting example to draw sinners to reconciliation and to lead souls to sanctity.
For You are our God and we are Your people and we glorify You, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and ever and forever. Amen
