Effective immediately, the bishops of Ohio have canceled all public Masses in the state until at least through Easter Sunday (April 12). There are no weekend or weekday Masses until further notice. Weddings, funerals and baptisms may continue with limited attendees.
The Ohio bishops stated: As Catholics, in every Sunday Mass we celebrate the passion, death and resurrection of our Lord. The Holy Eucharist is the source and summit of our faith. In this moment, we are experiencing in a unique way the passion of our Lord as this pandemic prevents us from gathering for the Sunday Eucharist. In this very difficult time, we encourage the faithful to turn to the Church’s treasury of prayer. Sunday remains a holy day, and we encourage the faithful to pray using the rich resources of our faith, including praying as a family or individually the rosary, divine mercy chaplet, the Liturgy of the Hours, stations of the cross, etc. We also urge you to participate in prayer by way of radio broadcast or televised or livestreamed Mass and make a spiritual communion.
All groups and functions of St. Edward Parish are now canceled except the following:
We will continue to monitor developments and make adjustments as necessary.
Most of all, during this time, we need to pray. The following prayer (author unknown) expresses our trust during this time:Our Father, we trustingly pray to you, asking that the Coronavirus may do no more harm, that the epidemic may be swiftly gotten under control, and that you restore the health of those affected and peace to the places where the virus has arrived.
The Friday Fish Fry has been canceled for the remainder of Lent. We apologize for any inconvenience.
