We will be having 2 weekday Masses (one at IC and one at Nativity) starting this week (July 6th). There will be an 8 am Mass on Tuesday at Nativity and an 8 am Mass on Thursday at IC. After July 20th we will hopefully return to a normal weekday Mass schedule.
Churches Open for Prayer
The diocese has approved a plan for opening the Churches for prayer for a limited time period each week. This started the week of June 21st. IC will be open on Tuesday mornings from 8-10 am. Nativity will be open on Thursday evenings from 5-7 pm. Only 10 people will be allowed in the Church at one time. We will be having sign up via the internet or by calling the parish office. We are currently still tweaking this sign up system. Face masks are required when in the Churches.
Live Streaming of Weekend Masses
Even though we are now that we are back in church for weekend Masses, we realize that not everyone will attend as there is still no obligation to attend. Thus, we will be living streaming one Mass from each church during the weekend. This will be viewable on our website and hopefully Facebook. We have purchased some new equipment to make this possible. Hopefully it will go as planned. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
Church Donations – Please!!!
Please continue to financially support the Church. The collections have dropped during the past month. However, our expenses continue to stay at the same level. Thanks for all that you do for the parish and please continue to pray for the parish. The Lord knows that we can always use more prayers, especially during these difficult days.
Weekly Parish Updates on Facebook
I will be giving weekly updates (Fireside Chats) on our parish Facebook page (Mater Dei Parish Facebook). I will be discussing what is new in the parish and how things are moving along. If you are not already following our Facebook page, now is a good time to start.

Advent is a special time for making gifts to the pantry. During this season as we await the birth of Jesus Christ, you may bring your gifts to the altarbefore or after Mass. There will also be a basket at the altar marked for the pantry for monetary gifts. Thank you for sharing your gifts with those in need in our community.
