A LETTER TO THE PEOPLE OF ST. EDWARD PARISH FROM FATHER ANTONY
On Monday, March 16, 2020, Archbishop Listecki issued a Letter to the Faithful of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. The letter states, in part:
Effective Wednesday, March 18, I am suspending the public celebration of Masses throughout the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, through Friday, April 3. This includes weekday and Sunday Masses...
Liturgy for weddings, funerals and baptisms should still be celebrated, but you should work with families to try and limit attendance at these events. The 12 hours of Reconciliation across the archdiocese on April 1, will continue as scheduled...
All non-essential Parish gatherings should be postponed, including fish fries. Schools are discontinuing face-to-face instruction this week and Religious Education programs should also stop for the time being. All of these measures will be re-evaluated on April 1, with additional communication at that time.
In accordance with the Archbishop's letter, St. Edward Parish will have no public celebration of the Mass between Monday, March 16th and Friday, April 3rd.
All non-essential parish gatherings between Monday, March 16th and Friday, April 3rd , will be postponed. This includes the ACTS fish Fries, Stations of the Cross and other parish-related performances and meetings of parish groups.
The parish office will remain open for its usual hours. But we ask that persons who are ill NOT to come to the office. If you are ill, but need to contact the office, please call 636-8040.
We close with the words of Archbishop Listecki:
Lastly, let us hold each other in prayer during this time of concern, asking Mary Help of Christians to intercede on our behalf. Together we can pray this Spiritual Act of Communion;
An Act of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
