Dispensation from the Obligation to Attend Holy Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation is lifted

bishop letterheader 500

March 18, 2021                                                                                                                             
Feast of Saint Joseph
 
My Dear Friends in Christ,
 
Since March of 2020, the Church and the entire world has been on a road that no one has wanted to travel, yet travel we did! Along the way, we learned to navigate a pandemic. Along the Way, we learned how to Zoom, Live-stream, social distance, and wear a mask. Along the way, we had to change our normal routines and learn to adapt, re-discovering the importance of the little things such as spending time with family, reaching out through a phone call, or sharing a meal at home!
 
… The parking lots of local sports complexes are full. Restaurants are open. People are traveling for spring break. Now is the time to return to Mass!
 
… Therefore, the Dispensation from the Obligation to Attend Holy Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation is lifted as of Palm Sunday, beginning with the Vigil Mass, on March 327, 2021, with an exception for those with pre0existing conditions, those who are care-givers to the homebound, or those with serious concerns, will have a Particular Dispensation.
Father Samson's Second Sunday of Easter Homily

Today is the second Sunday of Easter and the Church invites us to celebrate the Sunday of Divine Mercy. One week ago, we celebrated the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. We have seen that Easter is a passage from death to life and to know that death is not the end of our journey. The readings for this Sunday are about God’s mercy, the necessity for trusting faith, and our need for the forgiveness of our sins. The opening prayer addresses the Father as “God of everlasting Mercy”. We keep trying to understand this mystery to live in the light of God’s mercy.

We would like to again thank those who continue to support the parish through ongoing contributions. Many of you are using our online Faith Direct, attending Mass and dropping your donation envelope in the basket at the door or mailing them to the Parish Office, 203 Vaughn Drive, Branson, MO 65616.

This is a blessing to the parish.

We have added PayPal and Venmo for direct scanning. All three sites are highly secure.

Mass Intentions are available

Mass Intention Online scheduling is open.

Your sponsor support of the flowers in the Gathering Space is greatly appreciated.

If you would like to reserve a Mass Intention or sponsor flowers we have a NEW Mass Intention Online scheduling or contact Sam at the Parish Office 417-334-2928 or stop by the Parish Office to make arrangements.

We find not only the origins of this practice dating to the early Church but we also clearly recognize its importance. When we face the death of someone, even a person who is not Catholic, to have a Mass offered for the repose of his soul and to offer our prayers are more beneficial and comforting than any other sympathy card or bouquet of flowers. To have a Mass offered on the occasion of a birthday, anniversary or special need is appropriate, beneficial and appreciated
