Please read the bulletin for all the updates.
We are announcing that all public Masses will be suspended in the Diocese of Jefferson City, beginning on Wednesday, March 18 and until at least April 3.
We will be live streaming 8 am mass Tuesday- Friday and 9:30 am on Sunday. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxQWwuO9iiCUJixo2hBUcKA then hit the "video tab". Our YouTube page is Saint Andrew parish. Due to our internet the stream will be slow.
This is in keeping with the federal directives and other public entities in our area. We offer this decision as part of our effort to help stem the spread of the coronavirus.
This means all Catholics are dispensed from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass in person. Online opportunities are listed at diojeffcity.org/public-health, and some parishes will be able to provide online Masses. Catholics are encouraged to check with their local parish regarding online Masses. St. Andrew is working on having a live stream mass on our Facebook page on Sunday, March 22nd. Please check back as we get closer to Sunday.
In addition, parishes have been instructed to make the following changes, beginning March 18:
- All public gatherings are cancelled or postponed. This includes our fish fry. This includes public weddings. More information on baptisms, funerals and other liturgical protocols please call the parish office and speak with Fr. Roberto or you can be found at https://diojeffcity.org/blog/2020/03/13/liturgical-protocols-for-public-health-safety/
- During this time, churches will remain open as places of prayer and comfort. Priests will be available in the parishes to offer anointing of the sick and other sacraments. You are encouraged to seek the sacrament of anointing of the sick before you go to the hospital, if possible.
- I ask you to be mindful of your responsibility to serve the community, in your time, talent and treasure in this extraordinary hour of need. You may register your volunteer capacity at https://diojeffcity.org/parish-disaster-responders-team-volunteer-form/. Parishes are organizing disaster responder teams to serve those immediately impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. Please continue your tithes to your parishes by postal mail or online, if the parish offers that option.
We sincerely hope that all feel welcome in our faith community.
The people of St. Andrew Parish have given generously of their time and talents over the years to accomplish what we have. We hope all will experience the primary goal we have strived to achieve - a Church alive with the spirit of Christ.
