                                                                                                                   5th Week of Lent 

                                                                                                              My dear brothers and sisters in Christ,                                                                                                                                                             When I wrote to a former professor of mine in seminary to inform him of my transfer, he wrote back assuring me of his prayers for me and for the people I serve. Then, he wrote, "It will be a Lent like no other".                                                                                                                                                                                                            Indeed, it has proven to be a most unusual Lent. This time has been challenging for us all. For me as a priest, it raises a number of questions for me as it does for you. How do I minister effectively to you the people whom I serve? How do I do this, especially given all the various guidelines I must now comply with? These guidelines seem at times designed to prevent me from serving the people entrusted to my care.                                                                                                                                                                                      Though we do not have publicly celebrated Masses, I still celebrate Mass every day. The Mass intentions you gave donations for are still being honoured. I pray that all the people entrusted to my charge may be spared getting this virus. I remember each of you daily in my prayers.                                                                                                                                                                                                          I am still offering the Sacrament of Penance, though it is now in the sacristy of St. Joseph's and not in the church. If any of you do wish to go to confession outside the scheduled time, please either call the office and leave a message or call the rectory. If I am not in, please leave a message. I do check for messages frequently especially in the rectory. If someone needs anointing, please contact the office or my rectory. Please be aware that the hospital is not likely to let me in unless the person who needs anointing is dying. However, please do not hesitate to call.                                                                                                                                                                                             I do want to thank all those who have continued to give to our parishes during the time when we are not having public Masses.Thank you for your generosity. I ask that you continue to help support the Church.                                                                                                                                                                                    This Sunday's Gospel features Lazarus, the man whom Jesus raised from the dead. As Christians, even in the midst of times like these, we can look with hope. The Crucifix ought to be for each of us a profound sign of hope. Our hope is firmly planted on Christ who died to free us from our sins and rose again so that we might have new life with him. We believe he is faithful to his promises. Even in these times of uncertainty, we can look to Christ and to his cross with hope.                                                                                                                                                                                                Please know that just as soon as we resume our normal schedule of Masses, we will communicate this to you as quickly as possible. If you have access to the Internet, I strongly encourage that you visit This link will take you to the daily Masses offered either at the Bishop's private chapel or in the cathedral. These Masses are celebrated by the Bishop or by one of the priests of the cathedral.                                                                                                                May God bless you all and know that I pray daily for your health and welfare.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            In Christ,                                                                                               Rev. Robert Badger
