My Dear Friends in Jesus Christ,

You have already heard from our Bishop Parkes that, effective Monday, May 11, 2020 we are going to gather again for the public celebration of daily Masses (Monday through Saturday morning). We were all waiting for this joyful news. I know how much we miss the Holy Eucharist and how much we miss each another. 

We are getting so many phone calls asking us how are we all to gather for the Mass and also about other safety measures.  When we come together, we should be very careful; everything is not yet normal. 

Our Bishop asks us to be cautious: “As you know, entering public spaces carries a greater risk during this pandemic. That is why those who are ill, elderly or have underlying health conditions are urged to stay home. However, if you are able to attend daily Mass, you will notice many precautions in place to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 in our churches.

For example, social distancing;  the use of face masks; no physical contact, such as exchanging the sign of peace and holding hands during the Our Father, and elimination of the use of hymnals ... For this moment in history, this is what we are called to do, as we honor each life given to us by God and show charity for the well-being of our neighbors.”

  So dear friends, let us continue praying for one another. Let us keep in our prayers ‘the Healthcare Professionals, the Essential Workers and First Responders’ who keep us safe. Always trust in God. He will take care of everything.

My love and God’s blessings,

Father Sebastian 

Mis queridos amigos en Jesucristo:

Ya ha escuchado de nuestro obispo Parkes que, a partir del lunes 11 de mayo de 2020, nos reuniremos nuevamente para la celebración pública de la Misa diaria (de lunes a sábado por la mañana a las  8:30am). Todos estábamos esperando esta alegre noticia. Sé cuánto extrañamos la Sagrada Eucaristía y cuánto nos extrañamos. Recibimos muchas  llamadas preguntando cuando nos íbamos a reunir para la Santa Misa y también sobre otras medidas de seguridad.  Cuando nos reunamos, debemos tener mucho cuidado; y seguir las recomendaciones que nos están dando. Todo aún no es normal.

Nuestro obispo nos pide que seamos cautelosos: “Como saben, entrar en espacios públicos conlleva un mayor riesgo durante esta pandemia. Es por eso que aquellos que están enfermos, ancianos o que tienen condiciones de salud subyacentes deben permanecer en casa. Sin embargo, si puede asistir a la Misa diaria, notará muchas precauciones para reducir el riesgo de propagar COVID-19 en nuestras iglesias.

Por ejemplo, distanciamiento social; el uso de mascarillas faciales; sin contacto físico, como intercambiar el signo de la paz y tomarse de las manos durante el Padre Nuestro, y eliminar el uso de himnos .  Para este momento en la historia, esto es lo que estamos  llamados a hacer, ya que honramos cada vida dada por Dios y mostrar caridad por el bienestar de cada uno de nosotros”.

Entonces, queridos amigos, sigamos orando los unos por los otros. Mantengamos nuestras oraciones "los profesionales de la salud, los trabajadores esenciales y los socorristas" que nos mantienen seguros. Siempre confía en Dios. Él se encargará de todo.

Mi amor y la bendición de Dios
Padre Sebastian

A Welcome Message from our Pastor, Father Sebastian

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Jesus Christ, 

We warmly welcome all of you to the first Catholic church in West Pasco County. Together with “Our Blessed Mother” we gather at the Table of her Son, Jesus to get nourished and to proclaim His message of love in words and deeds.

We invite you to be a part of our loving Community being present at our Eucharistic celebrations and other events. Every First Friday at 5.00 p.m. is our Family Dinner Time in the Parish Hall. We gather to know one another and to build up new friendships. The third Sunday of the month is the St. Lorenzo 5 Star Breakfast Buffet.  Dates are published in the bulletin.  You must try it as it is the "best in town".

Please visit this magnificent Church adorned with colorful stained glass entrance doors, windows, Carillon Tower, Stations of the Cross and the Doves of Peace; stay here in solitude to get blessings upon you and your family through the intercession of Our Blessed Mother.

We look forward to seeing you!  May God bless you.
