Streaming Holy Week Liturgies The priests of the Marshfield Deanery will be celebrating the liturgies of Holy Week together and will stream them LIVE on the website of Our Lady of Peace Parish, olpmarshfield.com. All are invited to join them via the internet to observe Holy Week. While the faithful are unable to gather in person this year, they can mark these events through the miracle of electronic media. The schedule is as follows: Palm Sunday Mass, April 5, 10:30 a.m.; Holy Thursday Mass, April 9, 6:00 p.m.; Good Friday Service, April 10, 12:30 p.m.; and the Holy Saturday Easter Vigil Mass, April 11, 8:00 p.m. To watch any of the LIVE streams, simply visit olpmarshfield.com at the appropriate time and click the LIVE Holy Week Liturgies link in the menu at the top of the Homepage.
Palm Pick Up Blessed palms have always been a popular sacramental that Catholics have used to remind themselves of our Lord’s Passion, not only on Palm Sunday but throughout the year. From 8:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. on Palm Sunday, April 5, blessed palms will be available in front of the church for you to take and use in your home.
Prayer and Activities If you click on Prayer and Activities at the top right corner of this page you will be taken to the second page of this website which contains ideas and resources for prayer and activities for the remainder of Lent and Holy Week. While it is important to keep everyone safe during this time of pandemic, it is even more important for us to pray and mark these holy days as best we can in our current circumstance.
New Mail Box There is a new secure locking mailbox at the front of the Rectory. You may use this mail box to drop off your stewardship envelopes.
Continuing Contributions The reality of our current situation of not being able to gather for Holy Mass is indeed a spiritual hardship. But it creates another hardship for our parish community that is of a more practical concern—the inability for parishioners to make their weekly contributions to the Sunday collection. This does not present a problem for parishioners who contribute via our Parish Online Giving Program. If you do not utilize this program, you could sign up for online giving now via the secure website accessed by clicking the On-line Contributions button to the left; if you do not what to sign up for online giving, you can make individual donations by clicking the Quick Give link at the bottom of the page and following the directions.
Anointing and Viaticum Please know that the Sacrament of Anointing for those who are seriously ill and Holy Communion for those who are dying will continue to be available for any of the faithful throughout this time of pandemic. Please call Father Robertson at the rectory should you require either.
