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.
Bishop Schlert has reinstated several safety precautions, due to the spread of the Coronavirus Delta Variant:
All priests, deacons and extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion will be wearing masks while distributing Holy Communion regardless of their vaccination status.
Ushers will be wearing masks when greeting parishioners and while taking up the collection regardless of their vaccination status.
All ministers of Holy Communion will be required to use sanitizing stations.
The distribution of the Precious Blood and the exchange of the Sign of Peace remain suspended. Please know Sacred Heart Parish is doing its absolute best to welcome our parishioners back into a safe environment.
Currently you are not required to wear a facemask while attending Mass. Those who wish to continue to wear one are free to do so.
Hand Sanitizers will be available throughout the Church. Common sense precautions should continue.
Thank you for your continued support during this time 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
