Update from Fr. George April 30, 2020

Dear Friends:

I hope that you and your loved ones are safe and doing well. I don’t think that we can measure how much our lives have changed in the past few months since the deadly virus began spreading amongst us. We pray for all those who have lost their lives and those who have suffered in any way because of the COVID-19 virus. As you know during the month of May, the Church takes time to reflect on the role of the Blessed Mother in our Faith Tradition. It is a wonderful time to meditate on the impact Mary has in our own journey of Faith and how she helps us conform our lives to the life of her Son.
During this pandemic we have turned to the Blessed Mother and sought her intercession for help with this public health crisis.

On Friday May 1st, Archbishop Gomez of
Los Angeles, The Chairman of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops will lead the Church in A Renewal of the Consecration of the United States to the Blessed Virgin Mary. Attached you will find the Order of Service. Archbishop Lori will lead the prayers here in Baltimore. It will be streamed live at 3:00pm on Friday on the Archdiocese of Baltimore’s Facebook page. More information is on the Archdiocesan website at www.archbalt.org. Please join our nation in asking the Blessed Mother to intercede with her Son in this most stressful time.

Fr. George
