UPDATE FROM DIOCESE 

June 23, 2020

 

To my Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

As we are nearing the end of June, we are enjoying being able to expand the capacity for Mass attendance. We are now able to have as many people in the church as can safely fit (maintaining 6ft distance between households). 

Here are a few important points: 

  • Individuals/households must maintain a six foot distance. (There will be tape marking the pews to provide guidance.) Please keep in mind that we're asked to maintain the 6ft distance before and after Mass as well. 
  • Those who attend Mass are required to wear a mask.  
  • We will no longer be using the online signup sheet. Attendance at all Masses will be on a first come basis. Please keep in mind that Masses may fill up.  We ask for your patience and understanding should you come to Mass and find that it is full.  We have not had issues thus far, but your generosity could come into play should such a situation arise.   
  • During Mass, Father can only offer communion in the hand. However, if you wish to receive on the tongue, you may wait until after Mass has been completed, at which time Father will return to the sanctuary, and those who wish to receive on the tongue can come forward at that time. In order for Father to know if there are people desiring this, he asks that you come forward in the regular communion line, cross your arms for a blessing, and tell him that you will receive after Mass. 

Fr. Phil has also returned to the normal schedule for daily Masses. Tuesday-12:00pm   Wednesday-5:30pm   Thursday-7:30am   Friday-7:30am 

Confessions still must be scheduled with Fr. Phil.  You may call him at 307-871-8247

And finally, the Adoration Chapel is now open! Here too, we must maintain 6ft. distance. Please be considerate of others, knowing this will limit the number of people who can be in the chapel at one time. 

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out!  You remain in my prayers.  Remember to pray for each other.  We will continue to communicate updates with you.

God Bless!  

Fr. Phillip

There are a few new guidelines to follow for receiving Holy Communion:

•Please leave on your mask.  
•Leave a 6 foot distance between your family and the family in front of you.  
•After you have received on your hand, cover Our Lord with a cupped hand and step 10 feet away. 
•Lower your mask with the cupped hand, consume the Eucharist, replace your mask, and return to the pew.  Do not take the host with you to the pew. 
•Gloves can not be worn while receiving the host. 

As we move forward in reopening Masses, we want to be able to communicate the most current information.  We have a new email address for this purpose: saintbarb.info@gmail.com.  Please send your email to this address to be included. 

 

The Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick may also be celebrated in cases of serious illness or pending surgery.  Please call Fr. Phil to set an appointment. 

The Diocese of Cheyenne will continue to monitor the situation and will share updates as they are available.  http://diocesesofcheyenne.org/covid19/

Family Prayers:

Marriage Prayer:

Almighty and Eternal God,
You blessed the union of married couples so that they might reflect the union of Christ with his Church: look with kindness on them. Renew their marriage covenant, increase our love in them, and strengthen their bond of peace so that, with their children, they may always rejoice in the gift of your blessing. We ask this through Christ our Lord. AMEN
~USCCB
 
 

Prayer for peace in family:

Lord, be with my family. Grant us your peace and harmony, an end to conflict and division. Gift us with compassion to better understand each other, wisdom and love to assist each other, and trust and patience to live together. Grant that through the intercession of your mother, Mary and St. Joseph, our family may become a holy family accepting each other working together in unity, selflessly dedicated to one another and to You, Lord. AMEN

Lord, Jesus, you love each of us individually with a unique and personal love. Touch my life with your saving power, heal and restore me to fullness of life. Help me to give wholly of myself in loving service to others. AMEN

Bless Our Marriage:

We thank You, O God, for the love You have implanted in our hearts. May it always inspire us to be kind in our words, considerate of feelings, and concerned for each other's needs and wishes. Help us to be understanding and forgiving of human weakness and failings. Increase our faith and trust in You and may Your prudence guide our life and love. Bless our marriage, O God with peace and happiness, and make our love fruitful for your glory and our joy both here and in eternity.
