Please note the following letter from the Bishop:
The public suspension of liturgies must remain in place through Holy Week and Easter. This includes the celebrations associated with the Triduum.
Saturday, March 21, 2020
Once again I want to communicate with you and tell you what the parish is doing, in light of the suspension of Masses and parish gatherings. Because things are changing day by day I want you to have the most up-dated information. Please send this information onto those in your ministry group and help me “get the word out.”
Attached is a parish Press Release that I sent to the local media in Idaho Falls, as well as the most recent documents from Bishop Peter. In the most recent document from the Bishop, dated March 19, Bishop Peter is calling us to day of Prayer and Fasting, Friday, March 27, 2020. Also, the copy of the Press Release contains some of the ways our parish is responding to the global pandemic.
Attached is a Helpful Neighbor form. If you would like to help your neighbor, please copy this form on a bright colored paper and fill it out. Place the form in the mailbox or doorway of a neighbor that you think may need some assistance. Let them call you, if they need help. This is one way we can help.
Finally, I want you to know that Fr. Hippo will be offering a video Mass tonight, Saturday, at 5pm in English, and I will offer a Sunday morning video Mass at 10am. Fr. German will offer a Sunday Mass at 10am in Spanish. Daily Masses at 8:15am in English and 7pm in Spanish will also be offered. Also we invite you to pray the Rosary with us on Thursday evening at 6pm. You can access these Masses and prayer times via our Facebook page: Saint John Paul II Parish – Parroquia San Juan Pablo II.
Blessing to you all.
St. John Paul II, pray for us.
