We’re announcing with regret that until further notice, non-residents of St. Charles Center in Carthagena, Ohio, are asked not to attend Mass in the infirmary chapels. It is hoped this will help reduce exposure to the coronavirus for our residents. Also, the Sunday 6:15 a.m. and 10 a.m. Spanish-language Mass in the St. Joseph’s Chapel is cancelled for the time being. “We are also asking people with symptoms or exposure not to enter the building,” said Amy Day, St. Charles building manager.

Please pray for all those most affected by the situation: the sick, certainly; but also healthcare workers; students and educators whose schools are closing; businesses and workers who are suffering economic losses. Lord, please grant us wisdom, serenity and assurance of your mercy.
