    May 29th/30th
    May 29th/30th

    This weekend we celebrate Trinity Sunday and Memorial Day Weekend.  Possibly, in terms of the Trinity and in terms of those who gave their lives for our country, for us, and for our freedom’s sake:  we can call it Relationship Sunday.  It is about persons, relationships, and developing relationships.
    Let us start with the Sign of the Cross.  In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.  Amen.

    The Sign of the Cross is a very simple prayer, but it reflects two truths that Jesus died for our sins on the Cross and that God is a Trinity of Divine Persons.

    In Today’s Gospel, Jesus specifically commanded His disciples to baptize in the name of the Trinity.  That’s because Baptism is not just about committing ourselves to Jesus or having our sins washed away.  When we were baptized we were plunged into the life of the Trinity.  Each of us became an “adoptive son” or “adoptive daughter” of the Father, a member of Christ, and a temple of the Holy Spirit.

    We can remember our baptism each time we make the sign of the Cross.  But unfortunately, it is such familiar prayer that it might become rote or automatic.  Don’t let that happen.

    In the name of the Father:  Remember the Father who loves you.  He sees you not as a slave to order around but as a child to be loved.  He wants you to know that everything that separates you from Him has been forgiven.

    And of the Son:  Remember the Son who redeemed you.  Sent by the Father in love, He made the ultimate sacrifice so that you could join His family.  He wants you to understand that you are an essential part of his body, the Church.

    And of the Holy Spirit:  Remember the Holy Spirit who gives you life.  Gift of the Father and the Son, He actually dwells in you.  He wants you to experience even now the wisdom and power and presence of God within you.

    What a powerful and profound little prayer:  Today on Trinity Sunday, let the sign of the Cross remind you of everything you received at your baptism  You are an adopted child of God.  You are a member of the body of Christ.  You are a temple of the Holy Spirit.
     

    That Sign of the Cross refers to the ultimate sacrifice of Christ who gave his life to set us free.  As we celebrate Memorial Day weekend, let us remember the brave men and women in military service who also made the ultimate sacrifice.  They gave their lives for our country, ourselves and for freedom’s sake.

    We also remember and thank all our veterans and we pray for all those who died in military service and for all our loved ones who have died we pray:
    Eternal Rest Grant Unto Them O Lord and May Perpetual Light sign upon them.   May they rest in peace.

    Amen

    May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God rest in peace.

    Amen.

  • Memo From Fr. Jasany

    Dear Parishioners;

    We have been informed that the obligation to attend Sunday Mass has been reinstated by the Bishops of Ohio.  The Sunday Mass Obligation is in effect beginning June 5th and 6th, 2021.  It is the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Our Lord.  It would be wonderful to see a large Mass attendance at our weekend liturgies.

    Mass Schedule:  For the time being and at least through the summer months, we will maintain the present Mass schedule.  Masses will continue to be Saturday evening at 4:00 p.m. and Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m.  We will reevaluate the schedule at the end of the summer months.  We will continue to livestream our 10:00 a.m. Mass for those who are shut-ins, ill, or who have serious, legitimate reasons for not coming to Mass.

    Our church seats 315 people.  Right now, we only have 40 – 50 people coming to any one Mass.

    The following are some guidelines which we received from Bishop Malesic that we will implement on the weekend of June 5th and June 6th
     

    1. Face Masks are no longer required, but are strongly suggested for those who have not received the COVID-19 vaccine or who are otherwise vulnerable.  The Bishop states that “we should presume good will for everyone in this regard.”  Please do not inquire if someone has or has not received the vaccine.  There may be reasons why someone might still choose to wear a mask, even if they are vaccinated.  We are a community, and must respect everyone’s individual decision in this matter.
     
    1. Social Distancing is no longer required.  The use of all pews/seating areas is permitted.
     
    1. Holy Water in the Holy Water Fonts is now permitted.
     
    1. Liturgical Processions at the beginning and conclusion of the liturgy as well as offertory processions are permitted.
     
    1. The Offertory Collection by ushers passing the collection basket is now permitted at Mass.  Therefore ushers can now take up the collection as they did before, during the Mass.  The collection baskets on the steps will no longer be used.
     
    1. The Sign of Peace among the faithful is permitted.  It should be exchanged without physical contact between persons who are not of the same household or family.
     
    1. Liturgical Ministers (Altar servers, lectors, ushers, musicians, cantors, choirs, Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion) are permitted.  We hope to begin scheduling servers, ushers and one Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion for our weekend liturgies.
     
    1. Holy Communion The distribution of the Precious Blood remains suspended until further notice.  This explains why we will only schedule one Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion to assist the priest with the distribution of the hosts for Holy Communion.  That Minister will also go up to the choir loft (when applicable) to distribute the hosts to our choir.
     
    1. Greeting of the Faithful Clergy can now greet people after Mass.
     
    1. Hymnals and Other Books may now be returned to the pews.  For us this would include Today’s Missal, the Music Issue, and the Glory and Praise books.
     
    1. Cleaning of the Church A general cleaning of the church should take place on a regular basis.  The rigorous sanitization protocols are no longer in effect.  We thank Tony DiGeronimo for supplying us with the Chem Safe and the sprayer throughout the pandemic.  We thank Anthony Laboy, Jim Armbruster and George Weiss who sanitized our church after every Mass.  We are indeed grateful to all of them.
     
    1. Hand Sanitizers will still be available at our church exits.


    On another matter, you will see scaffolding go up in our church during the final days of May.  Last year, West Side Roofing repaired leaks in the church roof due to issues with flashing.  We filed an insurance claim with Diocesan Insurance.  Diocesan Insurance will pay to repair and to repaint the interior damage to the plaster and the paint in the various areas of the church.  Paul Davis Restoration will do the work.  It is my understanding that the total cost of this job is $50,942.11.  We will pay our $1000.00 deductible.  Diocesan Insurance will pay $49,942.11.

    As we see the interior restoration on our church building go into effect, possibly we can have the thought that all of us are called to build church together.  We do this through prayer, fellowship and sharing our time, treasure, and talent.  Please consider coming to our weekend liturgies and I thank you in advance for your continued financial support.  You can drop your envelopes in the collection basket at Mass, mail them to the rectory, or drop them off at the rectory.  If no one is available, please drop them off in the outside mailbox.  For those who wish, you can give online.  Visit our parish website for information on this option.  Our parish website is www.st-john-nepomucene.org.

    I am grateful to God for all of you.  Let us build church together.

    Sincerely,


    Father Jasany
