6th Sunday of Easter
Sixth Sunday of Easter
Who would have thought, back on March 13th, that the world as we knew it would literally stop? And how many of us would have ever believed that we would still be in this same situation two months later? Well, it did and here we are – still at home and for many, getting ready to celebrate the end of E-Learning for this semester.
We want to commend and thank each parent who has assumed the roles of homework monitor, disciplinarian, and activities director, just to name a few. All this while still trying to perform your own job remotely. We want to commend and thank each person who has had their world turned upside down yet continued to look out for and take care of others. We want to commend and thank all those who are on the front lines caring for the sick and the dying as well as protecting us from the spread of the virus. We want to commend and thank each person who is considered an essential worker and continued to work to keep our communities functioning. We want to commend and thank
for all you have done and continue to do to help during this global pandemic.
When this all started, the Parish Leadership team made the decision to make every effort to continue to pay all of our employees during the stay-at-home directives. This was not a decision that was taken lightly. We knew that the only way we were going to be successful was to rely on all of you.
It is with much happiness and gratitude that we are able to say – we asked and, oh my, did you deliver! To those of you who made the conscious decision to enroll in Faith Direct, we say a huge THANK YOU!! To those of you who have taken the time, each week, to send in your checks and envelopes, a giant THANK YOU to you as well!!
Because of your continued generosity, the parish has been able to meet our bi-weekly payroll obligations and other operating expenses. We could not have done any of this without each of you.
As the stay-at-home orders begin to be relaxed, we will be excited to greet you again as the opportunities present themselves…of course, while observing social distancing.
Thank you for your continued support of the St. Simon family.

An Act of Spiritual Communion
I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love you above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,
Come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace you as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.
