It’s not easy keeping Sundays special in quarantine. Here are some suggestions:

Be up to speed on Perfect Contrition & Spiritual Communion:

Know your options if you are unable to go to Confession or receive Holy Communion because of the coronavirus.  CLICK HERE  for an excellent summary from the Archdiocese of Seattle. 

Tune-in to an online Mass:

St. Thomas Aquinas:  8:30am Sunday Mass with Fr. Raja will be live-streamed on Facebook and recorded for viewing later via Facebook or the parish’s YouTube channel:
