Click on “Sunday June 21” and scroll down this page to see the live stream for today’s Mass.
This Sunday we will open St. Sebastian Church for Mass for the first time in almost three months! Two Masses will be available, at 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Please check the website for details about attendance logistics. The Archbishop has extended dispensation to August 2, so if you don’t feel well or can’t attend, staying at home is a good option.
We will observe the Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time – the time we celebrate the public ministry of Jesus. We learn what it means to follow in his footsteps. It is the longest season of the liturgical year.
The lesson for Sunday, June 21, is to not fear man, but to fear God. Fear has many opportunities to creep into our lives. There is fear of the coronavirus that can cause anxiety, frustration, heartbreak and sickness. Then we have fear of social unrest brought on by protests for racial equity. There is uncertainty all around us. But Jesus says, “Fear no one.” Check out the resources staff has prepared to help us address our concerns.
