March 22, 2020

Dear parishioners and friends,

Our journey has taken yet another turn. The governor has given us more directives – effective Tuesday, March 24, 2020, we are ordered to stay home. I encourage you to check the news and see the conditions of this order and the list of activities that are still open.

As for our parish, the parish office is closed to the public, but the staff can still be reached by phone or email at (302) 731-2200 and aahar@holyangels.net.  We will continue to stream masses, and other prayer services as Fr Carlos, Brennan and I will put them together. For now, we are using Facebook as a streaming platform. We are also looking for alternatives so that even those who do not have a Facebook account can watch it. Please be patient; we never foresaw this would be the only way we could share with you the Eucharist.  Please visit our website regularly for the most up to date parish information, links and other helpful resources. www.stjohn-holyangels.com.

We are going to make this part of the journey as a family together. Let’s make an effort to remain in touch with each other; please, make it part of your routine to call, text, social media, especially those who live alone. We will make it through by helping each other.

I urge you to comply with the directions given to us. It is the will of God for us at this particular time of history. We stay inside as a way to love others and God. We will be able to find new ways to discover God’s love for us.

I am praying for all of you, and I remember you at mass.

Fr Stanislao
