Updated as of 6:00 a.m. on Friday, September 17, 2021


The celebration of the Mass outdoors in the St. Michael’s parish parking lot has resumed as of Saturday, September 11, 2021 at 4:00 p.m. (and will continue on Saturdays at 4:00 for approximately the next two months). There will be no outdoor parking lot Mass celebrated on Sundays at St. Michael’s. This outdoor parking lot Mass is being provided in response to the ongoing covid virus pandemic (especially the delta strain) and in response to the high level of covid-related stress, anxiety, worry, etc. that has become more palpable and more frequently voiced in the community of late. No change has been made to the parish’s schedule/venue of our other Masses. During this approximate two-month time period, the Saturday 4:00 Mass will not be celebrated indoors, although we will welcome Mass-goers who desire to be indoors in the church on Saturday at 4:00 to do so, and we have made arrangements for the outdoor Mass to be simultaneously live-streamed to the “big screen” TV monitor that will be in the Upper Church for this Mass. Those viewing the live-stream of the 4:00 Mass indoors in the Upper Church may receive Holy Communion indoors in the Upper Church at the conclusion of this outdoor Mass. The upcoming Saturday 4:00 Parking Lot Masses will be celebrated in the same manner (including the dignity of the Mass and the utmost respect for the Blessed Sacrament) as they were during the May 2020 to July 2021 time period.

 U.S. Bishops' Statement on Moral Concerns with
Using the Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 Vaccine

The U.S. Conference of Catholice Bishops (USCCB) issued a Statement on Tuesday, March 2, 2021 regarding moral concerns with using the Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine. The Statement may be accessed by clicking below. The Statement says in part, "if one has the ability to choose a vaccine, Pfizer or Moderna’s vaccines should be chosen over Johnson & Johnson’s." The moral concern arises because the Johnson & Johnson vaccine was developed and tested and is produced with abortion-derived cell lines. The USCCB Statement also quotes the judgment of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith at the Vatican that "when ethically irreproachable Covid-19 vaccines are not available... it is morally acceptable to receive Covid19 vaccines that have used cell lines from aborted fetuses in their research and production process."
