Sunday Mass Changes - starting May 24!

Daily Mass is now "back to normal!" 

Well following proper social distancing at all times anyway! What does that mean?  It means please use common sense!  If you are ill, please remain at home.  If you wish to wear a mask, do so.  If you do not wish to wear a mask, then don't.   

All persons must maintain a social distance of 6 ft at all times.  Small children MUST remain with their parent(s) at all times - they must not be allowed to roam around the church, and they must be accompanied if they need to use the restroom.  No exceptions!

Father will be holding Daily Mass in the church (not the chapel) as follows:

Monday through Friday at 8:30 am.

Maximum attendance at Daily Mass is limited to 50 persons.

The good news is that our weekend Masses will be "back to normal" starting on May 24!  Well, social distancing Mass - which means that there will be some restrictions on the number of people who can attend each Mass.

50 persons will be allowed to attend each of the Masses - and this includes the Priest, Deacon, Altar Server, Lectors and Ushers.

To maintain social distancing, the pews are marked with blue tape -  once all of the available spaces are taken, no one else will be allowed to attend.

Saturday 5 pm

Sunday 7:30 am (English)

Sunday 9:30 am (English)

Sunday 11:30 am (Spanish)

There will not be a homily at the Masses, and there will be no music at any of the Masses.

Communion will be distributed AFTER Mass has concluded.

There will be volunteers to help you figure out the process - please remember that everyone is doing this for the "first time" and your patience is truly appreciated!

If you have questions about this process, please contact Father Fred at 928-642-4398.

A couple of very important things to take note of:

(1) IF YOU ARE SICK PLEASE STAY HOME!!  We ask that you contact the office and we can make an appointment to bring Communion to you.

(2) the restrooms will not be available on Sunday during the distribution of Communion. 

(3) If you have difficulty walking, please park in the handicap spaces and a minister will bring Communion to you.

This is the beginning of our return to regular public Masses on Sundays.  There will be adjustments as time progresses.  We ask for your patience, understanding and prayers as we move forward.  

We look forward to the day when we can once again join together at Mass and worship our Lord.  May you all remain healthy and blessed through this trying time.

If you are unable to participate in our new Sunday Communion process, you may also watch Mass on several sources:

Television - both Daily and Sunday Masses are available from many sources including:

Confessions will remain on Thursdays from 11 am to 12 noon

Those wishing to go to Confession are asked to enter the main church doors, and sit in the BACK of the church - maintaining the 6 foot "social distance" recommended by the CDC.  Father will open the door to the chapel and the person who is next in line will enter the chapel for Confession.  All persons will leave the chapel through the chapel door - not returning to the church. 

We ask that no one enters the chapel through the outside door on Thursdays from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm to allow privacy for Confessions.  Please note that the end of Confessions will be "fluid" as Father will make sure that everyone who comes during the posted times for Confession, will have the opportunity to make their Confession.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

We, the community of St. Catherine Labouré, empowered by the Holy Spirit, will strive to serve the Gospel message in reaching out as the Body of Christ to serve our brothers and sisters.

Most Reverend Eduardo A. Nevares, auxiliary bishop of the Diocese of Phoenix celebrated Mass at St. Catherine's on September 2, 2012, where he formally acknowledged our new status as a parish and installed Rev. Fred LeClaire, CMF as our pastor.  May we continue to grow in the love and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ!

 

Novena Prayer to St. Anthony Mary Claret

St. Anthony Mary Claret, during your life on earth you often comforted the afflicted and showed such tender love and compassion for the sick and sinful.  Intercede for me now that you rejoice in the reward of your virtues in heavenly glory.  Look with pity on me [or on the person afflicted with illness or whose conversion is desired] and grant my prayer, if such be the will of God.  Make my troubles your own.  Speak a word for me to the Immaculate Heart of Mary to obtain by her powerful intercession the grace I yearn for so ardently, and a blessing to strengthen me during life, assist me at the hour of death, and lead me to a happy eternity.  Amen.
