• Baptism: Shall not be celebrated while the health pandemic continues, unless it is a matter of possible death of the infant/person.


  • Confessions: Are not being offered during this time. The faithful are encouraged to follow the directives of the Holy See regarding perfect contrition. See page 6 of the upcoming bulletin.


  • Anointing of the Sick: Will be administered only in the most extreme circumstances with due prudence of the pastor and proper safety gear provided and all CDC regulations followed.


  • First Confession and First Holy Communion and Confirmation: will be rescheduled once we return to normal operations.

  • First Friday and Visits to Homes, Nursing Homes, and Hospitals:


Visits will resume when we get the “all-clear.” We do not want
to put anyone in danger of getting sick. Sr. Jane and Father will be happy to speak to anyone over the telephone during this time. Please call the rectory and follow the prompts to reach either of them.


  • Marriages: All weddings scheduled in the Diocese of Scranton are to be postponed until further notice. While churches may “hold open” the date of a scheduled wedding, whether the sacrament can be celebrated on that date will depend entirely on whether the restrictions have been lifted.


  • Funeral Masses: No funeral Masses or services, inclusive of those at funeral homes, are to be conducted. Graveside services may be allowed if all of the recommendations of the CDC are followed for a very limited number of attendees.
