Holy Thursday



The word “Maundy” is derived from the Latin word “command.” The “Maundy” in “Maundy Thursday” refers to the command Jesus gave to the disciples at the Last Supper, that they should love and serve one another.

But he was pierced for our sins,

crushed for our iniquity.

He bore the punishment that makes us whole,

by his wounds we were healed.

Holy Saturday…in Silence we await.

Easter Vigil is the highest point of the Easter Triduum. This, the longest celebration in Catholic worship, proclaims Jesus’ triumph over the powers of evil and death.

     With all the announcements and cancellations, I want to take this opportunity to assure you that you and your loved ones are in my and Fr. Gary’s prayers. We will be praying a private mass daily for your needs, the needs of the community and the mass intention. Know that even though we cannot visit the sick in the way that we normally would, if anyone is in great need we will do all that we can. 

     We will continue having our 7:30 am Mass on Sunday broadcast on the Radio, WSON, 96.5 FM.  Also, a link below will take you to a recording of Sunday, 7:30 am mass.  Remember it will be a private mass. 

     Let us keep one another in prayer and pray for a swift recovery from this pandemic so that we can celebrate as a community around the table of the Lord.

KHSAA Policy Update - COVID 19


The Kentucky High School Athletic Association (KHSAA), who also governs middle school sports, released a statement today that all inter-scholastic sports in Kentucky are under a "Dead Period" until April 12th. This means there will be no games/practices/team gatherings until April 12th. School facilities may not be used for any athletics nor may athletes and coaches use off-site facilities. For those with high school athletes or 7th & 8th graders conditioning or playing at Kentucky high schools, this will apply to those activities as well.
