On April 28th, the Catholic bishops of Ohio announced an extension and all publicly celebrated Masses and Liturgies are suspended through Friday, May 29th. We hope to begin once again celebrating public Mass together beginning with the Solemnity of Pentecost the weekend of May 30/31. During the suspension, Catholics unable to tend Sunday Mass can tune in and watch online Mass live-streams from St. Margaret of York or the Cathedral of St. Peter in Chains. Daily Mass is also streamed each morning from the cathedral.
Although we cannot meet together to celebrate the Eucharist which is the "source and summit" our faith, we need to keep in mind the advice of Pope Francis: While “social distancing” may be necessary during this time of pandemic, it needs to be countered by an increase in “spiritual closeness” with Jesus and each other.

Daily Mass (Monday - Saturday)
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is still available at our regular time in the Day Chapel or by appointment. If you are leery about coming into the chapel, we are also perfectly willing to meet you at other times at the new entrance for a drive-through confession. Our new overhang will keep us dry even if it’s raining. Just call ahead to set it up.

We are encouraging everyone to stay home and pray as a family. However, access to the church will remain available for individual private prayer. Key card access may be required to enter. The tabernacle has been moved from the Eucharistic Chapel into the Church to allow adorers to spread out.
