Mass & Confession Times for St. Paul’s Catholic Church & St. Peter’s Mission

WE HAVE MOVED TO OUR NEW HOUSE FOR GOD’S CHURCH!

Mass Times are:
 Saturday Vigil 5:30pm
Sunday  8:00, 10:30am, and 5:30pm
Daily Monday through Saturday 8:00am and 5:30pm

Holy Days as announced

(The Church will open 30 minutes before Mass.) 

St. Peter’s Mission is closed until further notice

We strongly encourage all who worship with us to continue to wear a face covering in order to protect yourself and other. 

If social distancing is not possible, masks will be required.

Holy Communion will be in the form of the Precious Body only and will be received in the hand only.

There is still a dispensation for anyone with underlying health conditions, who is sick or cares for the sick, is pregnant, or is 65 years or older. 


Confessions

Confessions are Saturday from 8:30-10:00am and 4:30-5:15pm. 

Remember that it is currently not required that you come to confession before returning to Mass. Make a Perfect Act of Contrition, come to Mass, and go to confession at a later date. 


PARTICULAR DISPENSATION INFORMATION
FROM THE OFFICE OF BISHOP ESTEVEZ

While the general dispensation is removed, there are specific instances where the dispensation will continue. One does not have an obligation to attend Mass on Sunday in the following circumstances:

  1. You are ill, or your health condition would be significantly compromised if you were to contract an infectious illness

        (i.e., you have underlying conditions or are in a high-risk category).

  1. You exhibit flu-like symptoms.

  2. You have good reason to think you might be asymptomatic of a contagious illness (e.g., you were in recent contact with someone who tested positive for a contagious illness such as COVID or influenza).

  3. You care for the sick, homebound, or infirmed.

  4. You are pregnant.

  5. Those 65 years of age or older (per the CDC’s recommendation of high-risk individuals).

  6. You cannot attend Mass through no fault of your own (e.g., no Mass is offered, you are infirmed, or, while wanting to go, you are prevented for some reason you cannot control (e.g., your ride did not show up, the church was at capacity).

These categories will be reviewed in due course and revised as needed.
Those who do not attend Mass must still observe the Lord’s Day and are encouraged to spend time in prayer on Sunday, meditating on the Lord’s passion, death, and resurrection; an excellent way to do this is through participating in a broadcast/live stream of the Sunday Mass.  


 

Every Thursday evening St. Paul’s celebrates a Holy Hour of Adoration of the Eucharist from 6:00 to 8:00pm  beginning in the new church on September 23, 2021.

“Every Holy Hour we make so pleases the Heart of Jesus that it is recorded in Heaven and retold for all eternity!

Through a partnership with the Archdiocese of Baltimore, the USCCB has temporarily granted free access to the readings and worship aids through myParish App. This includes the daily and weekend readings for Mass.

Since we cannot make the missalettes available, this is an easy way for you to follow the Mass while addressing current health concerns. These worship aids are provided for FREE  when you download MyParish App and select our church.
