St. Kevin’s liturgies return to normal

On October 10, we restored our Masses to their original format with continued and ongoing concerns for parishioner safety.  We fully understand–as does God–that for those who cannot yet come back to church and must stay at home there are options in place for worship with Mass offered on television and in many formats online. [See below for more information.]

For those who may be returning to Mass after an absence, the wearing of masks is strongly suggested and social distancing markings are in place in the church.  If you are receiving Holy Communion by mouth, please go to the end of a priest’s or deacon’s line only

Many thanks to all for your cooperation and patience these past few months with the many changes and adjustments that we have made to our parish liturgies and events.  These have been interesting and historic days and together we have kept everyone safe, healthy, and holy.

Parish Giving is a safe, secure, and easy way to support St. Kevin and St. Benedict parishes by making your weekly budget donations online. Due to the social distancing guidelines requiring the temporary cancellation of weekend Masses, budget collections have dropped significantly even though the operating costs for our parishes have remained fairly level.  Registering for a personal and secure online Parish Giving  account is an easy way to continue to support our parishes during these confusing times.  Find more information at Parish Giving.  [Print New Account Set-Up Instructions] (pdf)
