As we continue to live through the effects of this pandemic, we want to inform you of the recent confirmed case of COVID-19 at our parish. Fr. Cloutier has tested positive and is receiving care for his symptoms. We are working directly with the Archdiocese and the Minnesota Department of Health to report the case and working with their teams to make sure appropriate steps are taken.
Deacon Dennis will lead a Communion Service at 8 am Thursday April 22nd and Friday April 23rd. There will not be morning Mass at Holy Childhood Thursday or Friday mornings.
There will be no Communion Service at Maternity of Mary on Saturday April 24th, you're encouraged to attend 7:45 am morning Mass at Holy Childhood.
Please check back for updates on the daily Mass schedule as we are scheduling dependent on priest availability.
Thank you for your patience and prayers for the health of Fr. Cloutier and all those affected by Covid-19. Let us together trust in Jesus, who throughout the ages in times of uncertainty and trial, never fails us.
Our Lady, Comfort of the Sick, pray for us!

Your Safety at Mass

As a reminder, those 65 years of age or older, especially if you have an underlying health condition, are strongly encouraged not to attend and view Mass view LiveStream.
Seating in the pews should be limited to groupings of the same family, and one pew between non-related groups. Pews are marked accordingly.
Personal face masks must be worn, you should provide your own if you have them. There will be disposable masks at door #2 if you need them.
Hand sanitizer will be available at the entrances to the church, doors #2 and #3, but you are encouraged to bring your own.
Communion will be distributed during Mass, please follow the directional floor markings when coming up to receive and returning to your pew.
Once Mass is finished, please do not socialize inside. If you wish to, please do so outside and at an appropriate distance from each other. This will also allow the timely sanitizing of indoor surfaces before the following Mass.
