  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

    Poll: Does your parish serve kneeling vespers after the feast of Pentecost? If you don't mind sharing, I'd like to know your jurisdiction also.
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Yes, GoArch.

    They used to be served later AS vespers, but few folks returned to Church. Many such services have been moved around in our parish to help more people be able to attend.
