In these challenging times, I want to thank everyone -- our priests, deacons, Religious, lay leaders, and faithful for your trust in the Lord, understanding of this unique situation in the life of the Church, your fidelity to prayer, and loving perseverance in the face of adversity.

I am very grateful for everyone who continues to be generous in their support of our diocese and parishes.

As you can imagine, parish donations have dropped off significantly since the health restrictions have begun.

Parishioners who donate through envelopes or cash in the offertory at Mass can no longer do so in the same way.
