Holy Week and Easter Sunday
Please see the attached documents in regards to the canceling of Holy Week and Easter public Masses.
A spiritual communion is uniting oneself to the Sacrifice of the Mass through prayer and can be made whether one is able to receive Communion or not.
St. Michael and St. Peter parishes have been planning and taking the necessary precautions regarding the potential impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in our communities. the safety and well-being of our parishioners is of utmost importance. It is understandable that some of you may be concerned about attending Mass. This is especially true of the elderly who health officials suggest are at a greater risk for contracting coronavirus. Archbishop Charles Thompson has stated that those who do not feel well or have health concerns should stay home. Missing Mass to safeguard your health is not sinful.
Coronavirus has now been designated a global pandemic and as such, it may impact the weekend celebration of Mass. In Italy, for example, Masses have been suspended through April 3. Our parishes rely on the weekly generosity of our members to financially support our operational expenses. When Mass attendance declines or Mass is canceled altogether we still have financial commitments that must be met. Please help us during these uncertain times by continuing to financially support our parishes even if you cannot make it to Mass. there are several options:
- You can mail in your weekly tithing envelope or drop it off in the parish office,
- You can increase the amount you tithe next week,
- You can make an online donation by visiting smsbrookville.weshareonline.org
- St. Michael parishioners ONLY can sign up for ACH automatic withdrawals from your bank account (complete this form, Automatic Debit Authorization Form, and turn it into the parish office).
Please continue to pray for those who have been affected by the coronavirus and the flu.

Funeral Mass Pre-Arrangements
For the Christian death is not an end, but a beginning. In death, the faithful follower truly lives with our Lord in eternal and blessed union.
At the time of mourning, it can be a great comfort to your family and friends to know that the readings, songs and other arrangements that are made for the celebration of Holy Mass and Christian Burial were specifically chosen by you.
The link above will let you print off the Funeral Mass Pre-Arrangement Book that you can use to help you plan your funeral Mass. File in pages 20-21 of this document and keep them in a place that is known to your immediate family.
Remember, it is the grace of being baptized Christian that upon death the Sacred Rite of Christian Burial should be celebrated. This is the desire of the Church.
