Our Lady of the Lake Parish Community2385 Commerce Drive Mound MN 55364 | Saturday 5:00 & Sundays @ 8:30 & 10:30
3.29.2020 Mass with Fr. Tony & Fr. Peter
Letter from Archbishop Hebda (click here to read entire letter)
” In light of that advice, after consulting with the Presbyteral Council and College of Consultors, and having learned that an active parish priest in another U.S. diocese has tested positive for the virus – unknowingly putting his parish at risk prior to the manifestation of any symptoms – I have made the difficult decision to suspend all regularly scheduled public celebrations of Mass in the Archdiocese of Saint Paul Minneapolis, effective immediately. Given both the moral impossibility of attending Mass, as well as the dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass that was extended to the faithful of the Archdiocese last week, please rest assured that the missing of Mass in these conditions should not weigh on your conscience.”
Adoration Hours until Tuesday, March 31. Adoration on April 1 and after will be re-evaluated.
Adoration has been temporarily moved to the main Church to allow for CDC guidelines on Social Distancing. Door 8 (PACE center glass doors) will be the only door that will remain open during Adoration and confession hours.
Monday – 8:30am – 3:00pm
Tuesday – 8:30am – 3:00pm
Thursday – 8:30am – 3:00pm
1st Friday – To Be Determined after March 31.
In order to comply with CDC guidelines for social distancing, only the 2 middle sections of pews will be open. We ask all parishioners to respect guidelines staying 6 feet away from other people. At the end of each Adoration hour, our maintenance staff will wipe down the pews and door handles.
Fr. Tony will be available Monday, Tuesday and Thursday at noon in the church library for confessions.
Confessions will also be available on Saturdays at 4 in the church library
