The Bishops of the State of Ohio have released all Catholics from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass for the weekends of March 15, March 22, and March 29.
The Stations of the Cross will be prayed at 7:00 PM on Lenten Fridays, as scheduled. Of course, there will not be Stations with the school students until school is back in session.
Saint Matthew School will be closed beginning Monday, March 16th at dismissal time. All school-related activities are cancelled as well.
All CYO sports activities, including practices are cancelled, by directive of the CYO Office of the Diocese.
The status of other non-parish activities held at the parish will be determined by their own leadership. We recommend contacting those leaders directly.
During this time of crisis, we pray for deliverance from the spreading virus, and pray especially for those who have been infected, as well as those most susceptible to infection. Let us pray!
