Moving the Tabernacle?
Jesus Christ is the center of our lives, and he instituted the sacraments as the main channel for us to receive his love and mercy. To reflect this reality, Fr. Rick would like the parish to consider moving the tabernacle from the side of the sanctuary back to the center. The tabernacle would be placed directly behind the altar, below the Crucifix.
That said, the faithful have patiently accepted many changes this year: shutdowns, restrictions and countless rules associated with the coronavirus; a newly merged archdiocese, a new archbishop, and a new pastor. Therefore, he will only recommend moving the tabernacle if there is a clear consensus among the parishioners that this would be a welcome change. Please let Fr. Rick know whether you would like the tabernacle to be moved back to the center, or to remain in its current position.
