"In the sight of angels I will sing your praises, Lord" (Psalm 138)

Hello, Guardian Angels Family,

  1.  Even with the Governor’s “Stay In Place Order”, churches are still allowed to be open. So don’t be afraid to
come to church and glorify God. You can take the proper precautions to wash your hands after you enter and
stay at least six feet away from anyone. The church is extremely safe.
  At this time of unusual circumstances, the church is open from 9 a.m. – noon Monday through Thursday. If you
have concerns about church hours, please feel free to call the parish office. You can come in and pray and just
sit with our Lord. Then the church is open for the afternoon prayer time, 3 – 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.
Extra Adoration (and Confession) is available this week:
     -Saturday, March 28. Eucharistic Adoration and Confession available, 3:30 – 5:30 p.m.
     -Sunday, March 29. Eucharistic Adoration and Confession available, 8 – 10 a.m.
     -Tuesday to Friday, March 31 – April 3. Eucharistic Adoration and Confession available, 3 – 6 p.m.
(We will begin the Exposition at 2:55 p.m. and then pray a Divine Mercy Chaplet at 3.)
Again, please pray with your family each day at home. Hopefully you will pray daily a Divine Mercy Chaplet
for those who are dying who do not know Christ or who have rejected Him; and at least two decades of the
Rosary for your family, relatives, and friends. Use time as a gift from God. Increase prayer and spiritual
reading; decrease media.
   2.  I continue to offer Mass daily for the intentions of our church. I think about you when I pray my daily
Rosary and two Chaplets of Divine Mercy.
Be sure to watch Mass with your family on Sunday to keep holy the Sabbath. We will stream our Mass at
10:30 a.m. on Facebook, or you can get a zoom link through email later that day. See the Flocknote from
last Friday on how to make a proper spiritual Communion.
   3.  The men’s challenge! We are calling on the men in the parish to use this time as an opportunity to
consecrate themselves to St. Joseph by beginning to read Consecration to Joseph: The Wonders of Our
Spiritual Father on Monday, March 30. (Consecration day is May 1, the Memorial of St. Joseph the
Worker). Come to the office immediately to get a copy, which are available this weekend during Adoration
hours. Feel free to make a donation at the office.
The women’s challenge! Come to the office soon to pick up a copy of the book The Anti-Mary Exposed:
Rescuing the Culture from Toxic Femininity. It would be great if we can do a book study on this book in
May. Feel free to make a donation at the office.
   4.  Hang in there, everyone. Four “killers” of the soul: fear, worry, doubt, and control. Turn every
temptation into a prayer. Surrender all your worries and agitations to God, and then re-consecrate yourself
to Him through Our Lady. Priests have a saying: “Priest of Jesus Christ, celebrate this Holy Mass as if it
were your first Mass, your last Mass, your only Mass.” Now apply this to yourself: “Prince/Princess of
God, live this day as if it were your first day, your last day, your only day.” If you live one day at a time
and glorify God and build up His Kingdom, you will become “one happy camper.” Be thankful and
faithful.

Peace of Christ,
Fr. Michael
