As you know this has been a bad flu season. Bishop DiMarzio has decided to take some steps to safeguard the People of God.
The Bishop has mandated that we not distribute the precious Blood to people at Mass. This suspension will be lifted upon conclusion of the flu season.
In addition, all are asked to exchange sign of peace by a bow to each other while saying “Peace be with you”. It is also strongly suggested that if you experience the flu that you not attend Mass until you are well again.
May the lord continue to bless you and grant us all good health!
