Mount Calvary and COVID-19 Precautions

For the most up-to-date information regarding the parish, please sign up for our weekly emails by clicking here.

We are now worshipping indoors at 50% capacity, but we will no longer have a signup unless it becomes more apparent that it's necessary to do so. Until Labor Day we will only have the 10am Sung Mass. Per city regulations, distancing and face coverings are required (at least for adults and older children).

MASS OBLIGATION REMAINS COMMUTED

The Sunday Obligation for members of the Ordinariate or Mount Calvary is fulfilled in one of two ways. Either by: (1) Prayerful reflection upon the Sunday Scripture readings, concluding that time by the recitation of the Prayer of Humble Access or the Anima Christi; Or by: (2) The recitation of the Rosary as a family. The first option is satisfied by participating in Mass online.

LIVESTREAM UPDATES

We have been working hard to improve our livestream capabilities. We will be posting our livestream Masses on the Parish's Youtube channel here so make sure you subscribe, hit the bell to be notified, and check it regularly.

Podcast and Pastor's Blog

In addition to our YouTube page you can also check out the homily podcast and blog of Fr Scharbach. In addition to homilies we've also had other talks recorded and posted on the podcast including a talk on St Albert the Great by Dr. Lipscomb

PRAYER AND SACRAMENTS CONTINUE THROUGHOUT THE WEEK

The parish remains a critical role in continuing the flow of prayer and sacraments, which continue to be offered on behalf of all the faithful. Accordingly, I continue to celebrate weekday Masses, though without a congregation.

Let's take to heart these words of Fr. Ousley from our Ordinariate parish in Philadelphia:

"Remember also that while the grace of the Holy Communion is the ordinary way God nourishes us, He is not bound by any limitations. These are extraordinary times, and He will care for us in extraordinary ways."

When you are staying home, you can always make an Act of Spiritual Communion

EVENING PRAYER

You can access our form of evening prayer online at this site created by John Covert. This is a good way to become more familiar with how to say Evening Prayer alone or with your family--and a good opportunity to gather in community while being closed in.

Online Giving is critical for the parish at this time

Please keep up support of our parish here. We're grateful for those who have been consistent in supporting the parish during these uncertain times. We give in response to God's command, but we primarily give in gratitude for God's generosity to us.

A Prayer of St. Chrysostom.

ALMIGHTY God, who hast given us grace at this time with one accord to make our common supplications unto thee; and dost promise that when two or three are gathered together in thy Name thou wilt grant their requests; Fulfil now, O Lord, the desires and petitions of thy servants, as may be most expedient for them; granting us in this world knowledge of thy truth, and in the world to come life everlasting. Amen.

In Christ,

Fr. Scharbach
