It is our desire that everyone is to be able to attend mass; however, the COVID-19 pandemic remains of considerable concern for all of us. We will take and encourage everyone to use reasonable precaution; but we cannot assure that everyone is 100% shielded from this virus. We recognize that our success relies upon everyone participating to help us be successful in maintaining a safe environment.

Sunday Mass will still be available online on Facebook at 11:00 AM in English and 2:00 PM in Spanish for those who wish to attend mass via the internet.

Sunday Masses Twisp and Brewster (Livestream)

Prayer of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You. Amen.

Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of fasting and abstinence for Catholics. In addition, Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence.

For members of the Latin Catholic Church, the norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18 until age 59. When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal, as well as two smaller meals that together are not equal to a full meal. The norms concerning abstinence from meat are binding upon members of the Latin Catholic Church from age 14 onwards.

If possible, the fast on Good Friday is continued until the Easter Vigil (on Holy Saturday night) as the “paschal fast” to honor the suffering and death of the Lord Jesus and to prepare ourselves to share more fully and to celebrate more readily his Resurrection. Information from USCCB’s Fast and Abstinence Resource Page

Bishop Thomas Daly October 10, 2020 – Updated COVID-19 Guidelines

Bishop Thomas Daly has issued new directives for parishes in the diocese of Spokane. Pastors have been given time to review and implement the plans as appropriate for their parishes. Please click on the link below to read the full set of new guidelines. 

Basic Practices (the Three W’s):
Parishes are to develop infection control protocols for their gatherings that incorporate these basic practices:
• “Watching Distance” – Individuals should observe physical distancing by maintaining no less than six feet between people not of their household.
• “Wearing Masks”  – Parishioners are required to wear face coverings whenever they are indoors for Mass, excepting the reception of Holy Communion. A mask is not required if it cannot be worn reliably or if it aggravates breathing difficulty or another health risk. Priests are instructed to wear masks during distribution of Holy Communion.
• “Washing Hands” – Hand washing and the use of hand sanitizer upon entering the church / gathering space is strongly encouraged.

A Message from Catholic Charities of Central Washington

Having a baby and raising a family is an incredible experience, but the journey of parenting is sometimes a struggle and families and moms may need help along the way. Whether you just found out you are pregnant, are a new mom or a new dad, or are juggling the demands of parenthood, all families need a community to support them.

PREPARES is a nurturing response of the Catholic community in Washington state, open to all, to provide meaningful, local and sustainable support to mothers, fathers, and families as they nurture their children through pregnancy and early childhood. Volunteers at the PREPARES program offer support and activities for families from pregnancy to your child’s fifth birthday.
