Response to Governor Walz’s Declaration
As you probably have heard, today (March 13) Governor Tim Walz has declared a peacetime state of emergency in Minnesota. He has recommended cancelling or postponing gatherings with 250 or more people.
What does this mean for Confirmation Mass this Sunday? Bishop LeVoir responded “Parishes are receiving questions about the celebration of Confirmation. Right now (and this could change as the efforts to slow the pandemic develop), I am asking that the Confirmations be held as scheduled, while doing the best that can be done to keep the number of worshippers below 250 as advocated by Governor Walz. I know this is an inconvenience, but Governor Walz has urged us to work together to slow the spread of the virus and this will involve sacrifice, something with which Catholics are very familiar.“
For this weekend’s Masses, we ask you to consider attending a Mass other than the 10am Sunday Mass if you do not have a connection to a Confirmation Candidate. If you are able, we ask you to consider attending Saturday’s 4pm Mass or Sunday’s 8am Mass in Nicollet.Thank you for your consideration of this matter.
