Dear St. Stephen, Martyr Parishioners:
I was notified today that an individual who most recently visited the parish on Sunday, November 22, 2020 and attended the 11:30am Mass, has tested positive for COVID-19. The individual is receiving the appropriate medical attention. Following government and diocesan protocols, I immediately notified local health officials and our diocesan officials to make them aware of the situation. Per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and diocesan guidelines, the spaces occupied by this individual was closed for an airing out and was thoroughly cleaned and disinfected.
Out of care and concern for every staff member and parishioner, I urge you to contact your primary health care provider immediately if you feel ill.
Please join me in praying for this individual and all who are affected by COVID-19 at this time.
In the Trinity, Fr. Brian
