Annunciation Parish/Archdiocese of Cincinnati Coronavirus Update
In this unsettling time of this Coronavirus pandemic, please note the following regarding Annunciation Parish and School…
After consultation with the governor and health officials, the Bishops of Ohio are convinced of the need to take the following necessary action: Temporary suspension of all public Masses through May 29th in the state of Ohio. More information can also be found here. Read Archbishop Schnurr's March 17 letter to the Faithful here, and his April 2 letter can be found here. The April 28 statement from the Catholic Conference of Ohio can be found here.
Schedule of when Annunciation Parish Church will be open for private prayer… While the Bishops of Ohio have temporarily suspended all public Masses through May 29th in the state of Ohio, Archbishop Schnurr does want churches to be accessible for some time each day for the faithful to come for private prayer. Annunciation Parish Church will be open for private prayer from 8:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. Monday-Friday; 3:00-6:00 p.m. Saturday; and, 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Sunday. As you visit, please, out of charity, follow the current social distancing guidelines: maintaining a distance of 6 feet in all directions from others and no groups larger than 10 persons. Thank you for your cooperation!
Annunciation Catholic School is closed for the remainder of this academic year. There will be no track during this time, either. Our faculty is putting together home learning packets for our students, and engaging is distance learning.
This is a rapidly evolving situation, and we will do our best to keep you informed of any other changes and pertinent information via Mass announcements, email, bulletin/newsletters, website, and Facebook. Please note that we do have parishioners who have no access to internet, so please try to share this information to the best of your ability.
During this time of uncertainty we know one thing for certain…the Lord is with us! Please pray for each other, for all those suffering from this and all other illnesses, for our Parish and School community, our Church, and our world. Remember to be mindful of our neighbors, especially those most vulnerable and alone in these times.
Mary, Help of Christians, pray for us!
