As more and more faithful return to Mass, TOGETHER encourages parishioners and catechizes them on the importance of Mass, the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist, the value of Sunday, our obligation to worship and the advantage of being together physically rather than virtually. Over the next 5 weeks we'll be covering this in the homilies and in the bulletin 'Chat with Fr. Matt'.
