COVID-19 Coronavirus Parish Response



Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

As of May 11, 2020, we have resumed public daily Mass in the church sanctuary. Weekend Mass resumed May 16th. In an effort to ensure the safety of all souls in the Diocese of Charleston, we have announced the following measures:
 

1. Please read our Guidelines for Returning to Mass. We encourage seniors to attend the 5:30 p.m. Vigil Mass. Our current Sunday Masses are at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. On September 13th, our new Sunday Mass times will be 8:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. with RCIA and Youth Faith Formation classes at 9:15 - 10:30 a.m. on Sundays. 
 

2. Confession will take place in the confessional in the church; there is ample space to allow for safe distancing and privacy. Please read Bishop Guglielmone's Letter on Resuming Confession. The faithful at home are asked to make an act of contrition and come to confession as soon as possible.
 

3. Eucharistic Adoration hours will be 9:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m., seven days a week, following Mass. Visit virtualadoration.home.blog/ to spend time with Jesus in a virtual Perpetual Adoration Chapel. Select a chapel link to from the page to visit. 
 

4. Funerals and weddings may be permitted, but attendance may be limited. Baptisms should be postponed unless absolutely necessary and should observe the same limitations. Call the office, 843-875-5002, for arrangements and information.
 

5. Our parish Sunday Masses are livestreamed or recorded and available on our YouTube channel. You are encouraged to participate in recorded or livestream Masses and other devotions such as Stations of the Cross, the Rosary, or Divine Mercy.

You can find livestream daily and weekend liturgies from other parishes in the Diocese of Charleston HERE. Be sure to visit cable and internet options such as EWTN, Catholic Faith Network, and CatholicTV. 


6. We encourage you to continue your generous support of our parish. You may make your offering online or mail in your envelopes to the parish office if you are uncomfortable or unable to attend Mass during the coronavirus outbreak. For those attending Mass, there is a general drop-box for envelopes as you enter or exit the sanctuary. For more information about Online Giving, please click here.


 

7. As per the Bishop, priests may continue to administer the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick for those in danger of death. However, if a person is designated as "quarantined or at risk", even at home, priests cannot put their health or the health of others at risk by visiting. Hospitals are not permitting chaplains to enter under these circumstances. Pastoral care over the phone will be available whenever possible.
 

8. Ministry and group meetings in our parish may resume. Social distancing and sanitizing the space after each use will be required of each group. Please contact Kerry at Office@StTheresaChurch.com to schedule meetings and activities. 
 

9. We will communicate with parishioners and offer alternative faith formation opportunities via our website, Flocknote, social media, and our new parish app.

  • To sign-up for Flocknote (parish-wide email and text messaging service), go here.
  • To download our new parish app, download the myParish app from your smartphone’s app store (Apple or Android). Once you’ve downloaded the myParish app, search for and select St. Theresa the Little Flower.
  • For our social media, follow us on Facebook at the page “St. Theresa the Little Flower Catholic Church” or visit here
  • To sign-up for FORMED for great faith content for all ages (pre-K through adult) with our parish’s subscription, go here
     

10. Surface cleaning of pews will take place after each Mass. Please consider assisting us with this process. Thorough regular cleaning practices will be employed for all other parish facilities (including the chapel, parish office and other buildings).
 

These are challenging times for all of us. Let us unite with each other under the protection of our Lord and His Blessed Mother. We will continue to monitor ongoing developments and communicate with you as timely and efficiently as possible.

Thank you, and may God bless you.

Let us pray:

O Mary,
you always shine on our path
as a sign of salvation and of hope. We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, who at the cross took part in Jesus' pain, keeping your faith firm.
You, Salvation of the Roman People, know what we need,
and we are sure you will provide
so that, as in Cana of Galilee,
we may return to joy and to feasting after this time of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love,
to conform to the will of the Father and to do as we are told by Jesus, who has taken upon himself our sufferings and carried our sorrows to lead us, through the cross, to the joy of the resurrection. Amen.

Under your protection, we seek refuge, Holy Mother of God. Do not disdain the entreaties of we who are in trial, but deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen.
