Coronavirus Updates

Dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass:

“While no member of the Faithful is bound to attend Mass where impossibility arises, West Virginia borders a number of dioceses in which Masses are still being publicly celebrated, and many of our Faithful are easily able to attend those Masses.  Owing to the grave nature of the current public health crisis, and not wishing that any of our flock be compelled to place themselves unnecessarily at risk, I hereby dispense all those who reside within the territory of the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston from their obligation to attend Mass.  The intention of this dispensation, along with the suspension of public liturgies in the Diocese, is to encourage the Faithful to practice ‘social distancing’ and ‘self-quarantine’ to the extent that their state of life permits, by which we hope to contribute to the containment and end of the current pandemic.”

—Most Rev. Mark Brennan

Dear Parishioners in Christ,

Beginning March 18, 2020, the Parish Office will be opened for a limited time every day to collect mail, check email, voicemail and to pay the bills.

The Secretary and the Bookkeeper will work online at home.

Father Jojan Joseph and Sister Stella Cronauer will be available for Spiritual Assistance and will be celebrating Holy Mass for you daily.

If you are in any need of Pastoral Care call:  Fr. Jojan Joseph or Sr. Stella Cronauer.

Any elderly or homebound in need of groceries or medications may call Father or Sister and they will arrange for assistance.

During this time of great challenge, we need to insure that our parish fixed operation expenses and the care and support of our community may continue.  Please consider using the Online Giving resource or mailing your envelope contributions to the Church Office.

Let us pray for all our Brothers and Sisters who are affected by this pandemic, for medical personnel and for an end to the Corona Virus worldwide.


Yours faithfully,

Fr. Jojan Joseph
