IMPORTANT NOTICE: ** MARCH 18 SCWC MEETING CANCELLED**


Dear Ladies,


Due to concerns about coronavirus and the Archdiocese's decision to close the school and suspend church activities (see Notice below), the Board has decided to cancel the upcoming March 18th SCWC General Meeting.



Archdiocese Notice:


MEDIA ALERT


Archdiocese of Miami to celebrate the Lord’s Day but will be guided by prudence and best counsel of civil authorities and medical professionals in the coming days.


Miami.. . (March 13, 2020) Our parishes will celebrate the Lord’s Day this weekend and during the week for those who do wish to participate in the Eucharistic celebration, the source and summit of our Christian life. We pray that we will be able to continue to do so; but we will be guided by prudence and the best counsel of our civil authorities and medical professionals. If circumstances dictate in coming days that Masses be suspended the Archdiocese will make a timely announcement to that effect.


Archdiocese parochial schools and high schools will close on Tuesday, March 17th. (In order to provide parents the opportunity to arrange childcare and personal schedules, Catholic schools will be open on Monday, March 16.) Religious education programs (CCD) are also suspended. Retreats and other parish activities will be cancelled or postponed in an effort to increase “social distancing” in order to mitigate exposure.


“I continue to urge prudence. Those who are sick or are tending to the sick should not come to Mass this weekend. Those who have anxiety, or are caregivers to the elderly or young children, may decide not to attend Mass. Given these extraordinary circumstances, I dispense the faithful of the Archdiocese of Miami from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass,” Archbishop Thomas Wenski said.


As we prepare to celebrate the Third Sunday of our Lenten Season, our nation – and, indeed, our world – is facing unprecedented threat because of the Coronavirus Pandemic. We hold in prayer all those infected with the virus, their families and loved ones. We pray for the repose of the souls of those who have died. As a people of faith, we trust in the power of prayer and in the providence of our loving God; as a people of hope, we know that God will never abandon us in our need; and as a people of charity, we, despite our own fears and anxieties, stand in solidarity with all of our brothers and sisters infected or affected by this pandemic.


Let nothing disturb you, let nothing frighten you, he who has God nothing lacks: God alone suffices. (St. Teresa of Avila)

As far as other upcoming events in April, obviously your safety is of utmost importance and we will abide by whatever the Archdiocese indicates we should do. We are hoping that things will be back to normal by then, but since we don't know for sure at this time, we will keep you informed as things develop... In the meantime we are praying that you are all healthy and well....


Blessings,


Cris Reeder
