Letter From the Rector
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ:
Attached you will see a notice regarding an incident that took place in the narthex of the Church last Sunday during the noon Mass. No one was threatened, no gun was drawn, it was shown to our security man and he was immediately escorted out by a police officer we hired. I want you to know we have all been working tirelessly with the police and other authorities to address this incident. The police do not feel as though he is a continued threat to our church, however, because of the seriousness of this incident, and out of an abundance of prudence and caution, we will have an armed police officer at every Mass. The officer will also be guarding the children as they go to and from faith formation on Sundays. This Wednesday night we will have a police officer present from 6:30 to 9:00. Our staff will be meeting with a safety expert this week to guide us in formulating security protocols. Let us all remain vigilant while we place all our trust in the Lord. Remember the 9-11 adage: If you see something say something!
