OLOP Phase 1 Gathering Plan & Frequently Asked Questions

Dear Parishioners of OLOP:

As you know, we have previously announced that Our Lady of Purgatory Church will be reopening for limited public gathering at the Divine Liturgy beginning Saturday, May 30, 2020. In this web posting, please find OLOP Phase 1 Gathering Plan 200525 – Final. This plan sets forth the process and procedures that we will use to create the safest atmosphere we can as we reopen on a limited basis in Phase 1. I would like to thank all of the members of the OLOP Covid-19 Task Force for their counsel and collaboration in drafting this plan.

Over the course of the next three days I will be posting via the web copies of Frequently Asked Questions on various parts of the plan to assist you during Phase 1. In this web posting, please find the first of the FAQ Attending Divine Liturgy During Phase 1 200525 – Final. Please review this plan and these Frequently Asked Questions with the members of your household.

On Tuesday, May 26, 2020, I will be sending two Frequently Asked Question Handouts. The first will explain why it is so important to wear a mask or face covering while attending Divine Liturgy. The second will explain the process for making a reservation to attend one of the weekend Liturgies.

Beginning Wednesday, May 27, 2020 at Noon, we will open up the online reservation process for the May 30 – 31 Weekend Liturgies. You will be able to access the online reservation program by visiting the Parish website at www.ourladyofpurgatory.org .

Pursuant to the Safer At Home Advisory issued by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, if you are 65 or over, or if you have a pre-existing medical condition, or if you cannot wear a mask or face covering due to a medical condition, we strongly encourage you to remain at home and continue to virtually participate in the Liturgy during Phase 1. We will continue to live stream the Divine Liturgy on Zoom, and now also on Facebook Live.

I look forward to the day when we can all once again gather to sing God’s praises at Our Lady of Purgatory Church. In the interim, I want to thank you for your continued understanding and cooperation.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at (508) 996-8934.

In Christ,

Fr. Vince

Update on Public Liturgies

Dear Parishioners of OLOP:

During that past two months, we have faced many challenges in our personal and professional lives caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic. Thankfully, our Parishioners and their extended families have navigated the health impacts of COVID-19, with a few sad exceptions. Although the medical profession is still working on a vaccine (which has resulted in some positive preliminary results), we still do not have a vaccine or cure for COVID-19. As we continue to socially distance, Governor Baker has issued a new Executive Order that allows us to publicly gather once again as a community of faith, but in a limited fashion. As you know, I’ve been meeting with the OLOP COVID-19 Task Force since the State of Emergency was declared, and we have now produced a plan entitled “Welcoming Our Family of Faith Back Home – A Plan to Transition to Public Gatherings at our Liturgical Celebrations.” This is a very comprehensive plan that allows us to comply with all of the requirements necessary for our Church to once again allow public gatherings.

Based on this plan, I am happy to announce that beginning with the 5:00 PM Saturday Evening Liturgy on May 30, 2020, and continuing until further notice, we will be able to allow up to 75 Parishioners to gather at Liturgy.

For the short term, attendance at Liturgy will be a little different than it was before March. Our plan is designed to take every reasonable effort to help protect the health of our Parishioners while allowing our Parishioners to once again gather and receive Holy Communion.

During the coming week, we will be posting our plan on the Parish website, on our Facebook Page, and you will receive a copy by e-mail. We will also be providing important information to you on the steps you will need to follow.

While I would like to welcome everyone back on the 30th ,and continue to pray for the day when we can gather as we have in the past, based on guidelines from the Commonwealth, I must strongly encourage those Parishioners aged 65 or older, or those who have medical conditions, to not join us in person at this time. This is to protect your own health. We will include you in our Intentions at Divine Liturgy and will continue to recite the Prayer of Spiritual Communion as we continue to live stream all liturgical celebrations via Zoom.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact me at (508) 996-8934.

God bless you all.

In Christ,

Fr. Vincent

Passing of David Dickinson on Sunday Morning 5/17/20

Dear Parishioners of OLOP:

It is my sad duty to inform you that David Dickinson passed away early Sunday morning. We now entrust his soul to Almighty God. Our condolences go out to his wife Mae, his son Gregory (Lydie) and their children, and his daughter Laurie Ann and her children. Services will be private and the family has asked for a little time so that they may quietly deal with their loss. A memorial liturgy will be scheduled in the near future. We ask Almighty God to welcome David into His kingdom and may his soul rest in peace. Allah yerhammo.

In Christ,
Fr. Vincent
