SJN Information Regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Updated: April 1, 2020:

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ...

In light of current directives from the State of Minnesota and the Archdioceses of Saint Paul and Minneapolis here is our operational plan:

• The Church building will remain closed with essential staff covering our pastoral care and liturgical needs either from within the building or at home.  All scheduled public liturgies remain suspended.

• We will continue recording our Masses for online availability and are now live-streaming a Mass every day.  Our weekday Masses on Monday through Friday will be streamed at Noon.  Palm Sunday Masses will be streamed at 5:00 PM on Saturday and 10:00 am on Sunday.

• Our Holy Week streaming schedule will be:  Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday- Mass at Noon; Holy Thursday Liturgy of the Lord’s Supper will be at 7:00 PM; Good Friday Tenebrae Service will be at Noon, Liturgy of the Lord’s Passion will be at 3:00 PM and 7:00 PM; the Easter Vigil will be at 8:30 PM and Easter Sunday Mass will be at 10:00 am.

• Our phones will be actively monitored by staff members working from home on Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 PM.  On Good Friday, they will be monitored until 11 am.  They will not be monitored on the Monday after Easter.

• During this unusual time of “social distancing”, our parking lot, with you in your cars, will become our interim worship space.  During hours of normally scheduled Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, we will have the Monstrance prominently and visibly displayed by one of our windows; you are invited to pray with the visible presence of the Blessed Sacrament while you are in your car.

• I believe that Reconciliation in a confessional is not in compliance with the intent of the Governor’s directives, so, until clearly permissible in compliance with CDC, state, and Archdiocesan recommendations, we will temporarily modify our method for the administration of this Sacrament and continue to make it available during the times when it is normally scheduled.  At 8:40 am on Saturday (except Holy Saturday), 6:30 PM on Tuesday, and 12:00 Noon on Wednesday, we will offer a Penance service over FM radio (Frequency 88.9) in our Parking lot.  On Wednesday of Holy Week, we will be adding an additional 2:00 PM and 5:30 PM parking lot Penance Service. If you wish to attend one of these services, I ask you to please arrive at least five minutes before the service is scheduled to start to avoid additional distraction as we use this unusual and unfamiliar administration of this sacrament.   After arriving before the service starts, plan on remaining in your car for the entire liturgy which will be no longer than 20 minutes with absolution at the end.  Note that the Church building will be closed without access to rest rooms.

Of course, all of this is subject to change. We will strive to keep you up to date via email, as well as through frequent updates to the SJN website and Facebook pages as well as on our YouTube Channel. You can also access our weekly bulletins online.

Lent is a time of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.  We have all given a lot up in this unanticipated health crisis.  Now that our Lenten Fast has also become a Eucharistic Fast, we should pray with gratitude for what we have taken for granted; may we emerge from this crisis as a holier prayerful people recommitted to  the building of God’s Kingdom from the foundation of this world with our love and service to God and each other. 

Finally, the St. John Neumann parish exists because of the generosity of the faithful people who worship here.  Please remember us through this crisis so that we can pick up from where we left off when things begin to normalize.  Please consider donating online, electronically, or by mail.

There is hope, this will pass. Keep the faith. May God bless you all!

Fr. Doug Ebert, Pastor
