A note from Fr. Bob June 25, 2020

Well, COVID has finally hit home.  At this writing (June 25), 3 teachers and one parent in our pre-school have tested positive and are sick from the virus.  The school is closed at least until MISD re-opens in August.

We’d only been open a week.  We followed all of the state requirements, and then some. 
We did everything right.  Yet, the virus found a way in.  These 4 folks may have been positive prior to our opening.  They didn’t have any symptoms.  But now all of our children and staff are at risk.

A little story:  I know a little bit about fixing cars.  I’ve read articles.  I’ve googled questions.  But, when my car started acting weird, I went to a certified mechanic.  The last time I tried to be my own expert, it cost me hundreds of dollars to fix what I repaired.

If your dentist tells you that you need a crown, you may ask another dentist for confirmation, but ultimately you get the crown.  Nobody wants a crown, but if the expert tells us we need one, we get it. The CDC, NIH and almost every reputable medical professional recommends wearing a mask in public, maintaining physical distancing, avoiding venues and events where people are not practicing safe behaviors.  Yet, bars are full, protests (as right as the cause is) have people shoulder to shoulder, beaches are packed, and over half the people I see in stores are not wearing masks. And we wonder why the numbers are rising.

Folks, listen to the experts.  This isn’t a political statement.  This isn’t just a commonsense statement.  This is a moral statement.

If any of our kids get sick, it won’t be their fault.  I’m not pointing at anyone in particular, but it certainly isn’t the kids’.   Jesus tells us that the greatest commandments are to love God and to love our neighbor as ourselves.  There’s the question, “am I my brother’s keeper?”  Yeah, we are.  And our sister’s, and the grumpy old guy down the street, and the stranger in Home Depot.  Listen to the experts.  Wear a mask.  Stay home as much as possible.  Avoid crowds.  Wash your hands.  If not for our own safety, then do it for the kids.  Fr. Bob

 

Re-gathering for Worship            

Due to the continued rise in infection and hospitalization rates in Midland, we will not have in-person worship at least a couple more weeks.   In fact, even the virtual worship is   being cut back to protect the   participants.  There will be less music and the total number of participants will be cut from 8 to 5.
