While our church buildings remain closed until further notice, in reality the Church - the People of God, Body of Christ, and Temple of the Holy Spirit - is very much with us, just as Jesus remains with us. In this time of being apart we discover alternative ways to participate in Masses, supporting one another and continuing to be a part of the life of the Church.
