Our Parish Mission Statement:
To Live and Preach the Gospel through the Example of our Lives

Archived Announcements: 5/15/2020 - 6/4/2020


Posted 6/4/2020

Dear Parishioners and friends:
The pandemic has had a serious effect on all of us. Our Bishop is anxious to allow us to resume our normal worship schedule, but he is also most concerned with the health and safety of us all.
Therefore beginning the weekend of June 6 and 7 public Mass will be offered according to our regular Mass schedule
However, to protect us from the virus, only every other pew will be available for seating. You are asked to keep six feet from your neighbor in the pew except for family members. There will be no missalettes to avoid germs and no sign of peace will be exchanged. You are asked to please wear a mask in the church. Father and Deacon and Eucharistic ministers will wear masks when distributing Communion. You are asked to stay six feet from the person in front of you in the Communion line, and the Precious blood will not be shared. There will be no greeting after Masses.
You are asked to please put your kneeler down before you leave so that your area may be sanitized. We are in need of volunteers to help sanitize the churches after each Mass
Our 10:30 AM Mass on Sunday will be televised on our Facebook page for anyone who prefers to watch the Mass at home. Holy Communion will still be distributed at 11:15 AM following the Mass at St Catherine's church

From All Saints Page on Facebook:

Our Sunday Mass is televised on our new Facebook page at 10:30 AM
I [Father John] will be in St Catherine's church to distribute Holy Communion beginning at 11:15 AM. All who enter the Church must keep a distance of six feet from each other. Everyone entering the Church must wear a mask except when receiving the Blessed Sacrament. All must enter by the front doors and exit by the handicapped ramp. Handicapped people must wait for Father to bring Holy Communion out to them. There will be no Precious Blood available. One or two Eucharistic ministers could help to distribute the sacred Hosts. Father will be in the center and he and the ministers will stand 6 feet apart. Hand sanitizer will be available and used by every person before and after distributing Holy Communion

From Father John:

Beginning this Sunday, May 24 Holy Communion will be distributed to all who are properly disposed beginning at 11:15 AM until 11:45 AM in St Catherine's Church Charlestown NH. As you know our Sunday Mass is televised on our parish Facebook page at 10:30 AM on Sunday. Father John is available to hear confessions if you call to request the Sacrament. Holy Communion is not allowed to be brought to the sick at this time.
Please know that we are praying for you and your loved ones each day.
Father John Loughnane
