Homily Fr. Nate Harburg 17th Sunday OT Year B 2021



From Bishop Gruss:

To all:

Following the latest CDC the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services recommendation, the Diocese of Saginaw is adjusting its COVID-19 protocols.

Effective immediately, the wearing of masks in liturgical celebrations will be optional for those people who have been vaccinated and are 14 days beyond their last shot.  People who have not been vaccinated should continue to wear masks. There will be a more complete update on Diocesan COVID protocols provided next week.

We should remember we have not yet fully emerged from the pandemic and the need for vigilance still exists. Other mitigation practices such as washing hands, staying home when sick, and social distancing when appropriate remain important.

Let us all – whether vaccinated or not – show consideration and charity for each other, so that all members of the Body of Christ feel welcome at the Mass and all parish events.

Thank you.
