Worship at Ss. Columba-Brigid

Worship at

Ss. Columba-Brigid

We the church of Ss. Columba-Brigid are a welcoming, inclusive, multicultural Catholic community inspired by the Holy Spirit to celebrate the Risen Christ in how we worship, love our neighbors, and work for justice in our daily lives.

 
Livestream Announcement

We are having issues with Livestream so until further notice, Masses will NOT be available via Livestream and will instead be available by going to the bottom of this page to the LIVE video section.

Also, until further notice, we will NOT have our bilingual Mass on the last Sunday of the month. We will have our Sunday, 9 am Spanish Mass and our 11 am English Mass.

Update on Re-opening

We are happy to announce that in this phase of Re-opening, we can fill our church to 25% capacity for services.  Our maximum number of attendees at Mass will be 65, with room for 25 more in the church hall. Social distancing will be required.

If you would like to come to Mass this weekend:

1. You will have to wear a mask to enter the church.

2. If you have your own hand sanitizer please bring it and use it. We will have some hand sanitizer in the church, but it would be easier if you use your own.

3. Please sit six feet apart, except for immediate family members. An usher or volunteer will instruct you where to sit.

4. There will be no holding hands, hugging or other contact during the sign of peace, Our Father, or other times.

5. We will not be using hymnals or the missals.

6. Only 65 people can be in the church itself. If more than 65 people arrive, ushers will direct you to choose among these options: sit in the parish hall, which can accommodate 25 people; stay in your car; stand or sit outside, for example in Sister Karen's Garden. Fr. Jud and Deacon Jerry (or a Eucharistic Minister) will come to you to distribute Communion. There will be no Communion on the tongue, and the Precious Blood will not be distributed.

 

If you are currently sick, please do not come to church yet. If because of underlying health conditions you are more susceptible to Covid-19, or if you are uncomfortable to be around other people at this time, please do not come to church yet. Thank you for your understanding and your patience.

Taking Your Temperature

As another way to assure that our church environment will be as safe as possible for all who attend Mass, volunteers will be taking your temperature as you enter the building. If your temperature is above 100.4, you will be asked to not enter the church. Even though a high temperature is not a sure sign that you have Covid-19, we are taking this step to ensure the safety of all. If you have a cough, trouble breathing, or other Covid-19 symptoms, or if you are otherwise not feeling well, please stay at home.

 

Our Masses are still being televised on Livestream at https://livestream.com/accounts/2315534 While in church, please sit only where indicated, and use hand sanitizer when needed. Thank you.

New Community for Lay Women

Sister Colleen O'Toole, who is a Sister of Mercy in Buffalo, and another young sister are starting an intentional community and are looking for laywomen to live with them. They are looking to share their lives with women who are interested in living simply, exploring their spirituality, and living in community. The women do not need to be Catholic. They are trying to be flexible because of the ongoing pandemic, and are open to any and all questions and conversations. For more information or to request an application, please contact Sister Jenny Wilson at jwilson@mercynyppaw.org or (814)969-5327.

An Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, 
I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. 
I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You.

Amen.
