For the Week of November 28, 2021:
IN-PERSON SUNDAY LITURGIES RESUME
All registered parishioners are invited to sign-up each week in order to attend one of the Sunday Liturgies via the weekly parish Flocknote email ([email protected]), double-check your email junk folder in case it doesn’t appear in the usual inbox.
Limited space available per liturgy will mean a first sign-up basis. Mask wearing and physical distancing will continue to be mandatory for all who attend. Please be assured that Fr. Darrin and all of our parish staff have been fully vaccinated for your protection.
WISH TO JOIN US IN SUNDAY LITURGY?
Unfortunately, during this time of gathering limitations due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our Sunday Liturgies are limited to registered parishioners only. If you wish to become a parishioner of St. Gianna’s, please attend our next New Parishioners Information Session by clicking on the sign-up link below.
Weekday liturgies have resumed on Wednesday and Friday mornings at 10:00AM. Since the weekday liturgies usually gather less than our current limit, there is no need to register. Please arrive by 9:50AM as all participants are required to complete the necessary protocols and access to the worship space will be closed once the liturgy begins.
STEWARDSHIP OF TREASURE
Our Stewardship of Treasure Annual Renewal will be held in January 2022. We look forward to a new pastoral year of mission and ministry as together we share in the joy of being a part of something great!
Thank you to all of our parishioners who sacrificially give of their treasure in response to the call to intentional discipleship.
Thank you to all members of our community who have donated to the Christmas Hamper program for the 12 families in need being sponsored by our parish. Please consider donating food items, a gift for a child or if you prefer to donate cash, we will put the funds to good use to purchase fresh food items and turkeys for the families. Please stop by the table in the narthex after Mass. We are asking the children gifts be purchased and donated by December 12th. Thank you in advance for your support of this special initiative to help the less fortunate in our community!
NEWCOMERS INFORMATION SESSION via ZOOM
Many who have joined our livstreamed liturgies this past year or have recently moved into the area, have made the request to join our parish community and to share a life of faith with us. For those seeking to join or learn more about our parish community, our next Newcomers Information Session will take place on:
DATE: To Be Determined
CATECHESIS OF THE GOOD SHEPHERD
Catechesis of the Good Shephered is a unique Catholic faith formation for children that seeks to create a very sacred space for them to fall deeply in love with God. It is rooted in the sacred scriptures, Catholic doctrine, the liturgy of the Church, prayer and the educational principles of Maria Montessori.

Regarding Pastoral Visits with anointing and communion from Fr. Darrin.
During these many months of pandemic, many of our parishioners have experienced health challenges, some resulting in the need for intensive medical interventions. Many continue to struggle to regain full and complete health.
COVID-19 restrictions now allows for home visitation to occur. I have been fully vaccinated and have received my vaccination card. Therefore, any of our parishioners who would appreciate a pastoral visit from me are invited to make a request for a visit.
I am more than pleased to make a pastoral visit and I am eager to reconnect after such a very long time of separation. If you are experiencing a period of illness, please let me know so I can be your pastor for you.
