Letter from Fr. Juan regarding COVID-19 Closure – March 13, 2020

Letter from Fr. Juan regarding COVID-19 Closure – March 13, 2020

My Dear People,    This morning as I was celebrating mass with our school children I spoke to them about not having fear. Fear is not from God. Fear should not be the driving force behind our decisions at this time.  Caring for others and ourselves is the main focus of this time. In this spirit, I invite you to read the following changes Bishop Taylor has mandated throughout the Diocese of Little Rock. After listing his changes, I will mention a few items relevant to Christ the King specifically. Effectively immediately, Sunday Mass obligation is dispensed for all Catholics. Hence, beginning immediately Catholics are not required to attend Sunday Mass through the end of April. Nonetheless, we will have regularly scheduled Masses this weekend (March 14-15) so I can address this unprecedented protocol with our parish family. You are not obligated to attend Masses this weekend, and anyone who is elderly or has health issues or a compromised immune system should stay home. Anyone who cares for the sick or elderly should also not attend. Still, perhaps now more than ever we need the strength, comfort and grace of the Eucharist. Churches will be kept open for private prayer and Eucharist Adoration during daylight hours as an alternative to Sunday Mass. Christ the King Church will be open from 8 AM to 6 PM Monday through Friday.  We will continue to do the same; we will, however, cancel daily Masses (English and Spanish) beginning Monday, March 16. Hence, no Mass on Monday, March 16....

FSCS COVID-19 Closure

FSCS COVID-19 Closure

Dear FSCS Families, In an effort to do what we can to minimize the spread of COVID-19, especially to the most vulnerable among us, the Catholic Schools Office, with approval from Bishop Taylor, has decided to close all the Catholic schools beginning March 16th until March 30, 2020. In response to COVID-19, we are trying to be proactive rather than reactive. Accordingly, certain measures must be put in place and the closure of school will be one of these actions. We will be implementing AMI (Alternative Method of Instruction/Cyber Days) all next week. We will still observe Spring Break and no instruction will take place March 23-27, 2020. We will not be conducting face to face parent teacher conferences next week, but your child’s teacher will be contacting you to do the conferences by phone or by email in the coming days. We will be at the school from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Monday, March 16, 2020 for you to come by and pick up any items your student will need during the closure. If you are unable to come during this time, please contact your principal to schedule a time that works for you. All teachers will be available during regular school hours by email to help your student or you with any questions you may have. If you have questions or concerns, please contact us by email any time. These are unprecedented times and we ask your family to pray for God’s guidance and healing. Our love and commitment to our Catholic school community is why we are choosing to move to distance learning. Sharon Blentlinger,...
