MPB MASSES REMAIN VIRTUAL
Given the latest (5/08/20) clarifications from the Archdiocese of Denver regarding the allowance for very limited public masses, our parish community at Most Precious Blood will be best served by continuing as we have been. That is, we will continue to have an on-line weekend mass live-streamed each Saturday at 4:30 pm and the video of that mass will be available for others to watch by Sunday morning.
Until we have the ability to have substantially more than 10 people (presently allowed and deemed to be safe) attending celebrations of the Eucharist, it doesn’t seem to make sense that such celebrations take place at this time. In addition to safety concerns, we feel it is important that we not allow our wonderful communal celebrations to become an experience and expression of competition, stratification and “who gets to come and who doesn’t.” The Catholic faithful are still released from their Sunday obligation.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Connect with our Homebound during the COVID-19 crisis.
Many of our parishioners are isolated in their homes or nursing facilities at this time. As we know, it’s easy for our vulnerable to feel cut off from family, friends, and community while keeping safe. We invite you to help us stay in touch with our homebound through cards and/or check-in calls. If you and your family would like to participate in this service project, please contact Christine Maschka at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you or someone you know is feeling isolated and in need of support, please contact Christine at the above email address.
