St. Mary of Lourdes Parish Family by now you should have received Fr.Todds pastoral letter. The outside of the pastoral letter
you will see a sticker that states that palms will be available at the doors of the Churches. The diocese has asked us not to leave
them at the doors, as there is the concern of people gathering and the covid-19 virus possibly being spread through the gathering
and numerous people touching the palms. Thus, they won't be at the door as a precaution. Please let others know this. Thank you and
