    First of all, let me commend all of you for your patience and understanding in this challenging time. Know also that I sympathize with those of you who are finding this situation and the restrictions placed upon us difficult to understand and accept. I can only speak for myself, but I would think that no one- from the Holy Father and the President to the Bishop and the Governor are happy that these have to be in place.

    Now what does the "Yellow Phase" mean for us:

    Parish office - will remain closed to the public through the yellow phase- business to be conducted by

    phone, 570-745-3301 or internet, icsloffice@comcast.net.

    Parish events - Mission trip to West Virginia- cancelled

    Graduating Senior Liturgy and Brunch- TBD

    Altar servers’ trip to Knoebels- cancelled

    SL Spaghetti Dinner- Sunday, June 28 (Still scheduled)


    Sacrament of Reconciliation - Beginning Saturday, June 6 we will use a special schedule:

    St. Luke- Saturday 1:00pm - 1:30pm in the Cry Room

    Immaculate Conception- Saturday 2:00pm - 2:30pm in the Reconciliation Room.


    Sacramental Liturgies - First Eucharist, Confirmation and R.C.I.A. will be celebrated on the weekends of

    May 23/24, May 30/31, June 6/7. These Liturgies will be private for the candidates and immediate family.


    Eucharistic Liturgies - Public weekend Masses will not begin until mid-June at the earliest. We will return to public weekday Masses on Monday, May 25 and reinstate the normal weekday schedule. We will follow the restrictions and guidelines of the diocese- 25 maximum attendance, social distancing, wearing of face masks, washing of hands before entering the main body of the church.

    We will use a reservation system to provide a safe and fair means of determining the attendance at these Masses. Beginning Monday, May 18 reservations can be made by phone to the parish office or by email. We will ask for names and phone numbers with the request. Individuals will be called to confirm their reservation which will be checked at the door of the church on the day of the Mass.

    We will continue to stream the Sunday Eucharist and Sunday obligation is still suspended at this time.

    Please understand that this procedure may take time to implement so I ask your patience and understanding yet again. Know that you are in my prayers and I ask for your prayers as well for myself and for those whose lives have been affected by this pandemic.

    Yours in Christ,

    Fr. Kozen
