It is with great joy and excitement that we share with you the news that Bishop Weisenburger has appointed Deacon Enrique Padilla to serve at Our Lady of Grace. Deacon Enrique was ordained as a deacon in 1982 in El Paso, Texas. Deacon Enrique and his wife, Mary Padilla, moved to Maricopa in October from Rio Rancho, New Mexico. They are Certified Spiritual Directors as well as Benedictine Oblates and have served in various ministry for over 40 years in the Diocese of El Paso and the Archdiocese of Sante Fe. We welcome Deacon Enrique and Mary to Our Lady of Grace. We are blessed to have them at our parish.
Why do we have to "Sign-up" for Mass?
Our Lady of Grace has chosen to utilize a website named "Sign-up Genius" to help us comply with our Diocese of Tucson directives on the re-opening of our church. Because we are limited to only 85 people in the church per each Mass during Phase I of our Re-opening, we found that signing up for a Mass will help us with maintaining the compliance of 85 people, but it will also give our parishioners an opportunity to see when a Mass is full so that we do not have to turn anyone away at the door. We understand that this is a very difficult time and frustration levels are very high. We just ask everyone's patience and understanding as this is only temporary as we get through the phases of the re-opening of our church.
Church Cleaning Teams after every Mass
We need people to help clean and sanitize the church after each Mass. If you can spare 15 minutes after the Mass that you attend, please prayerful consider helping us in this ministry. We will supply the gloves and all cleaning supplies.
When you sign up for your Mass on SignupGenius.com, please add the word "cleaning" in the remarks. We greatly appreciate your help in keeping our church safe for all our brothers and sisters during this pandemic.
