Healthy at Worship – Archdiocese of Louisville
Public Masses and other Liturgical Celebrations During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Worship Update May 2021 by Father Mike Tobin Pastor

St. Rita and St. Luke will remove the red tape floor signs and encourage use of all pews effective Saturday, May 15 at Masses.  The guidance from Archbishop still requires “at least three feet of distance between family groups.”  “In order that Masses may continue to be accessible to everyone, even vaccinated persons are asked to continue wearing Masks at Mass.”  To facilitate the collection, “baskets on handles may be passed by hospitality ministers.”  “Parishes may resume the practice of bringing forward the gifts of bread and wine at the preparation of the gifts, so long as those presenting and receiving the gifts sanitize their hands immediately before and after this ritual.”   “Hymnals may be returned to pews if desired.”  Please do sanitize your hands when entering church if you plan to hold the hymnals.  The prohibition on exchanging a sign of peace and the distribution of the Precious Blood remain in effect.  These changes were announced on April 30 by Archbishop Kurtz with permission to implement as soon as May 3 at the discretion of the pastor.  Many thanks to parish leaders for their assistance in organizing these changes. 

In general I ask us to arrive early for Mass. Arriving while the priest is speaking the opening greeting and prayer is not appropriate. It distracts from the priest and the people trying to worship in faith. Let us strive to maintain a sense of reverence in church avoiding talking once we move from the narthex into the church. After all we are in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament in the Tabernacle. To ignore the Lord Jesus and strike up a conversation with your neighbor in the pew is not appropriate. Please keep conversations to the narthex. We can be both welcoming and reverent, each in the place best suited, for welcoming and conversation in the narthex. and reverence in the church.

Thank you.
Fr. Mike

John Paul II spent several years propagating a teaching that has become known as the 'Theology of the Body'. These began in Spetember 1979 and continued for several years. Our youth director is recreating each message as JPII delivered them via video. Check it out here

St Luke is a small Catholic community in southern Jefferson County, KY. We are affiliated and share staff and pastor with St Rita in Okolona. We have a lot of different things going on in our community. If you're interested in assisting in any of the functions or activities of the parish, please don't be shy and introduce yourself.

Our youth participate in a two parish group and collectively are referred to as the Circle of Life Youth. Just this past year, the kids have traveled to Washington, DC to participate in the annual Walk for Life held in January. Several of our young adults traveled to Panama to participate in World Youth Day. The final Mass was attended by over 700,000 people. Each year, the youth produce a series of short plays featuring different saints and present this presentation to the three parishes. This event has been picked up as a workshop presentation this year at the annual National Catholic Youth Conference.

We have an amazing bunch of cooks in our family. St Luke hosts a great feedbag 10 times a year with an all you can eat chicken dinner held after the 10AM Mass on the second Sundays. There's always need for help setting up, tearing down or lending a hand in the kitchen. Oh, of course, there's a need to help eat all that great chicken too.

Each first Wednesday, there is an hour of Adoration and Night prayer held in the small chapel at 7PM. This is an excellent quiet time of reflection and closing with night prayer. Please check our calendar page to ensure this is happening. Occasional conflicts cause us to reschedule. Currently suspended, until COVID is contained.

We also have an excellent lending library of Catholic reading for all ages. Check out some of St Pope John Paul II's writings or more contemporary Catholic writers like Scott Hahn. Good videos and books for the wee folk too.

Physical amenities of the parish allow for large gatherings in the gym or smaller gatherings in the education space. Both are available for rental at fair prices. We also have access to a very good DJ.

The parish also hosts a thespian troupe, the Wilderness Trail Players. This group began over 25 years ago and has provided the parish with stage productions of many plays over the years. The troupe also travels to other venues in the metro area. So if you have an actors heart, check out the WTP.

Come visit and see what the St Luke community can offer your family and what you can offer the St Luke family.
