Because of the Coronavirus pandemic, the Catholic Bishops of Ohio have ordered that no public Masses be celebrated through Easter. (Your webmaster adds – unofficially – that this may be extended as the situation requires.)

An Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, 
I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. 
I love You above all things, 
and I desire to receive You into my soul. 
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, 
come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You.


Saturday, 10:00 am
Holy Rosary Church

To reduce the risk of contagion as much as possible, the following directives from Bishop Monforton are obligatory:

  1. There must be a distance of at least six (6) feet between the confessor and the penitent. How you will arrange this depends on the configuration of your confessionals.
  2. If there is a screen available, it must be utilized
  3. The penitent is to stand, not kneel, to reduce the risk of spreading illness by touching surfaces
  4. Confessions are to be heard as quickly as possible
  5. People awaiting confession are to spread throughout the church, maintaining distances of at least six (6) feet from each other.
