The Priest Personnel Director, Fr. David Endres, of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati informed us on June 15th that Fr. Prasanth Kumar Bandanadham from India, one of the parochial vicars assigned to our Family of Parishes, will not be arriving by July 1st. At this time, it is not known when he will arrive in the United States but work continues to complete the Visa process.
After much thought, prayer, and discussion, we will retain the current weekend Mass schedule and continue to obtain as much help as possible from the retired priests. However, there might be instances when a Mass at a particular time at a particular parish will have to be canceled because of not being able to secure a priest. Communication on this will be made as far in advance as possible so you can attend Mass in another parish in our Family.
Unfortunately, the current weekday Mass schedule is unworkable with having only two priests. Factoring in that Fr. John’s day off is Monday and Fr. Rob’s day off is Thursday, we will implement the following daily Mass schedule July 5th, on a temporary basis (until Fr. Prasanth arrives and gets acclimated).
|Immaculate Conception||7:30 AM||7:30 AM||7:30 AM / 9:00 AM|
|Holy Rosary||8:00 am /8:15AM||12:05 PM||8:00 AM||9:00 am First Saturdays only|
|St Patrick||8:00 AM|
|Our Lady of Guadalupe||7:00 PM|
We thank you for the warm welcome that many have already extended to us and look forward to working with you as we continue building the kingdom of God in our little part of the world that is known as God’s Country.
