Pastor’s Weekly Message 3-15-20

Dear Friend of Carmel Mission,

In light of current increasing concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic around the world and in the United States, we are taking steps to ensure the health and safety of our parish family and our visitors.

We will be continuing to offer all scheduled masses, liturgies and prayer opportunities including the Recitation of the Rosary, Taizé Prayer around the Cross, and Stations of the Cross. The Mission remains open to welcome all our visitors and pilgrims at this time.

For the time being we are going to suspend all social activities in Crespi Hall, including Sunday Coffee and Doughnuts.

The Knights of Columbus St. Patrick’s Day Dinner on Saturday, March 14 is cancelled.

This information is available on the website at, and updates will be posted as new information becomes available.

We are closely monitoring new developments regarding COVID-19. The health and safety of our parishioners and pilgrims is of the utmost importance to us. We will keep you informed of further actions that may become necessary to safeguard our community.

We ask for your continued prayers for all those affected by COVID-19 and those medical professionals who are caring for them, as well as for all who are fearful in this turbulent time.

We are called at this time to come together in prayer as a community of faith, trusting in God’s love and compassion.

May our loving God continue to bless, protect, guide, and heal us.

Wishing you and your family peace and good health,

Fr. Paul P. Murphy
