Effective immediately, the bishops of all Ohio dioceses have suspended all public Masses and liturgies at least through Holy Week and Easter in consideration of the grave health risk involved in public gatherings. There will be no evening Mass tonight (March 16) and going forward for the time being at St. Francis Xavier.
Please use this sacrifice as an opportunity to grow in faith and reverence for the Eucharist by praying as a family or individually the rosary, Divine Mercy chaplet, the Liturgy of the Hours, stations of the cross and other prayers. We will be researching the best ways to make a video broadcast of Mass at St. Francis Xavier available to you so you can make a spiritual communion during this time. God bless you.
