THE WOODLANDS, TX -- As we continue to be good citizens in our global, national, and local community, I would like to update you on further developments regarding COVID-19 interruptions for our parish. Please keep in mind many of these changes are to protect the many parishioners, volunteers, and staff who fall into the 'most vulnerable' category according to the CDC.

All of the ministry/group cancellations and postponements I sent last week will remain in effect until further notice. Additionally:

Eucharistic Adoration is reposed immediately until further notice.
Stations of the Cross will be streamed online only at 7PM on Fridays.
Our smaller Day Chapel is closed until further notice.
Lenten Fish Frys are cancelled for the remainder of Lent 2020.
Parish Staff will work remotely. Please contact them via email with questions.
Under current circumstances off-campus meetings & retreats are not sanctioned by the parish until further notice.

Our Daily Mass Schedule will be adjusted to the following:
Monday - Friday @ 9AM (Live Stream Available)
Wednesdays @ 6AM (No Live Stream)
Saturdays @ 10AM (Live Stream Available)
Tues & Thursday @ 6:45PM (Cancelled Until Further Notice)
At this time Sunday Masses remain unchanged with Live Stream available. Stay tuned for further updates as they are coming very quickly.

While all of this may seem overwhelming and/or disappointing, I want to remind everyone that we have a very real opportunity to 'Rebuild the Domestic Church' in our homes.

As Catholics we also have a very real obligation to PRAY for our world in this trying time - my staff is working hard to prepare prayer resources that you will receive digitally in the coming weeks. Please join us in prayer as we ask for the Divine Mercy of Jesus Christ to reign in our hearts and over our world!
