Father Andrzej & Staff
The chapel will be open and available for individual prayer Monday—Friday 7:00 a.m.—noon. The church will be open on Sundays from 8:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.
Father Andrzej will be hearing confessions in the main church. Monday April 6th—Wednesday April 8th 6:00-7:30pm Holy Thursday April 9th 10:00am-12:00pm Please continue to practice hand washing & social distancing.
From March 14th until April 13th, we will be spending our Lent in private prayer as a response to the coronavirus pandemic. Our Bishop has announced a general dispensation from the Sunday obligation to attend Mass. Moreover, all Masses are cancelled, as well as all the other public devotions and times for prayer, such as scheduled Confessions, Adoration, and the Stations of the Cross, and all other Church gatherings. Although this may seem an aggressive measure, this is done with the best interest not only of our faithful but also of the wider community in which we live and work.
Still, the Lord is with us and we are accompanying Him through His fasting with our Lent, now the most barren we can imagine. As your pastor, I will be offering Holy Mass every day, even though it is not open to the public, for you and for all, for an end to this crisis, and for healing. The daily mass chapel will be open from 7:00 a.m. until Noon. The main church will be open on Sundays. You can come and pray but you must not congregate. Also, I will be available for private confessions, Anointing of the Sick, and Viaticum (Last Rites). Our offices will remain partially open and you can reach me by calling 801- 295-3621 or email the office at either Jennifer@stolafut.org or Heather@stolafut.org
During this time, I encourage you to:
* Find Mass, especially Sunday Mass, online or on TV.
* Read the daily readings, available from the USCCB website, http://www.usccb.org
* Prayerfully read our daily Lenten reflection from Word among Us we have provided earlier
* Read Scripture
' Pray the Rosary
' Pray Psalm 91 (has some powerful words for the time of pestilence)
* Heartily engage the three Lenten practices of Prayer, Fasting, and Almsgiving.
Although we might not be together for worship, we can still share many things—especially news of our time to return to the altar of God in worship.
Remember, you are not alone! Let us pray together and be ready to reach out with help to those most vulnerable among us. Ask, if your elderly neighbor needs anything crucial at this time.
Let us pray to God through the intercession of our Blessed Mother and the saints for a speedy return to our life together in the worship and love of Almighty God and his people.
Saint Olaf parish is a Catholic community committed in faith to witness the good news of Christ in our daily lives.
In order to build the kingdom of God on earth, we gather to worship, educate, serve and grow in God’s love.
We pray for healing for the members of our community, especially:
Prayer Requests: To add a name to the prayer list, please stop by or call the Parish Office.These names will be printed for four weeks but you are welcome to call and extend the time if you wish. We ask that our faith community keep these persons and families in their prayers.
If your loved one is suffering from a serious or life-threatening illness, please request a Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick. Father Andrzej will gladly minister the sacrament and pray for God’s healing.

April 8, 2020~38th Anniversary of Ordination
So grateful you accepted the Lord’s call...Pray for our Priests!
O Jesus, I pray for your faithful and fervent priests; for your unfaithful and tepid priests; for your priests laboring at home or abroad in distant mission fields; for your tempted priests; for your lonely and desolate priests; for your young priests; for your dying priests; for the souls of your priests in purgatory. But above all, I recommend to you the priests dearest to me: the priest who baptized me; the priests who absolved me from my sins; the priests at whose Masses I assisted and who gave me your Body and Blood in Holy Communion; the priests who taught and instructed me; all the priests to whom I am indebted in any other way (especially …). O Jesus, keep them all close to your heart, and bless them abundantly in time and in eternity. Amen
