Faithful Citizenship and Voting
We are pleased to announce that Mr. Bob McMorrow will be offering a talk here at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish on the United States Conference of Catholic Bishop’s voting guide entitled Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship. The US bishops have repeatedly stated that abortion is the preeminent moral issue of our time and they have stressed its singular importance in forming Catholic consciences in voting.
When we consider how many issues that Catholic voters must address in discerning how to vote as faithful citizens, it is important to know which issues must take higher priority. Please come join us in Fireweed Hall on Thursday, October 29, at 7:00pm to hear Bob McMorrow offer some clarity on what can be a complex issue. Mr. McMorrow is the long-time Director of Evangelization and Catechesis at St. Benedict’s Parish in Anchorage.

CHURCH NOW OPEN FOR MASS
Our Lady of Perpetual Help is now open for mass at the usual times for daily and Sunday masses. We will offer mass at 4:30PM Saturday and 9:30AM Sunday. We will also offer mass on Monday through Friday at 12:05PM.
Let’s remember that everything is not back to normal. The virus is still active in the area and is infecting people. Let's be sure that we keep each other as safe as possible by doing the following:
- Many of our parishioners are elderly or otherwise at risk. Consequently we will ask that all parishioners wear cloth masks that cover the mouth and nose for the duration of their time in the church.
At the 4:30 PM Saturday mass masks WILL BE REQUIRED of all parishioners. At the 9:30 AM Sunday mass masks WILL BE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED. We have a limited number of face masks available here at the church for those who do not have their own already.
Please observe social distancing by staying six feet away from all people who live in different houses from yourself. The pews are marked with crosses designating six feet distances. Please obey all ushers directing overflow traffic into the parish hall, where you can follow the mass on Facebook live on your phone or device. Please enter only through the front entrance and exit only through the marked side exits.
Communion will be offered at the end of the mass and under the form of the Precious Body only, with no cup. We strongly request that all receive the Blessed Sacrament in the hand. If you wish to receive on the tongue, please wait until after those who receive in the hand have done so.
Thank you for cooperating with our efforts to keep our at-risk populations safe. Welcome back!
