Who will be the new pastor and when will the transition take place?
Our new pastor will be Fr. Damien Hils, and our new parochial vicar will be Fr. Augustine Aidoo. Fr. Dan Vogelpohl is retiring, and Fr. Benton Clift is becoming pastor of St. William Parish in Williamstown. The transfer is effective on June 11th. We bid a sad goodbye to Fr. Dan and Fr. Benton. Both will be greatly missed. We warmly welcome Fr. Damien Hils and Fr. Augustine Aidoo.
When will public Masses resume?
Public Masses resume at Blessed Sacrament Church beginning Wednesday, May 20th, with restrictions and protocol defined by the diocese. Our regular Mass schedule will apply. See hours on the website homepage. The dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass for all the faithful of the Diocese of Covington is extended until further notice.
Is Blessed Sacrament Church streaming Masses?
Yes. We are streaming through our Facebook page. Streaming will continue even after public Masses resume.
Is Exposition still available?
No. Without asking individuals to put their own health at risk, there is no way to set up a schedule to make sure that someone is present throughout the hours of exposition. The Blessed Sacrament is still in the tabernacle, and people can still come in for adoration without exposition.
Is Blessed Sacrament Church open for private prayer?
Yes. The church is open between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
Does the parish have a prayer line?
Yes. You can ask to be added to the prayer line by calling the parish office and leaving a message (859-331-4302) or by emailing Sarah Gillum ([email protected]). Sarah can add your prayer intentions to the prayer line and/or add you to the email database she uses to send out prayer requests.
The parish also has a prayer group that you can access through our Facebook Page.
When will the parish celebrate First Holy Communion, Confirmation and the sacraments for RCIA?
Unfortunately, we simply don't know. All involved parties will be contacted as soon as we have definite information to share. We sympathize with those who are disappointed at the delay, and we are keeping all in prayer.
