SERVING OXFORD, LAFAYETTE, AND THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSISSIPPI SINCE 1943

Sunday Bulletin

July 2020

Beginning July 19 (Sunday) there will be only one public Sunday Mass celebrated at 10:00am in English. Facebook Live will be streaming the Mass.

There will be a monthly Spanish Mass and some accommodation to the possible incoming population for the Fall as the COVID-19 situation continues to progress.

Stay-Cation Bible School: 

Due to Coronavirus concerns, our usual Vacation Bible School will be a "Stay"-cation Bible school this year.  Your child (and YOU!) can experience the Mass come to life at home.

There is nothing you have to do to "sign" up this year. Each day, starting next week, you will receive an email with that day's activities, lessons, songs and even snack ideas! 

This year's focus is the Marvelous Mass! This helps deepen your children's understanding of what we do, and why we do it, at their level of understanding and in a fun way. While many of us are still watching the Facebook Live Mass, this is a perfect way for your family to watch the daily Mass together, then dive into the lessons and listen to all of the discussion and questions it may prompt from their hearts. 

If you want to participate, email Jennifer Newsom and get on board! 

First Holy Communion:

There will be a public celebration of Mass for First Holy Communion on July 17 at 5:00pm (Friday). The limit to the congregation is 150 people at this time if we’re following the 25% capacity guideline by the State. For the occasion, children under 7 years old may attend but they will not have access to the Cry Room or nursery. 

 

 

 

Knights of Columbus Parking:

The Knights of Columbus are offering parking for the 2020 Ole Miss Football Homegames. Due to the uncertainty of COVID-19's presence into the Fall and the effect on the University, the Knights have a special offer for parking passes. Call Basil Richmond for more information: 662-816-0252.
