For the Spanish Community

We are continuing to see a high volume of Spanish speaking COVID patients, some waiting to long before seeking treatment..The language barrier is creating some misunderstanding of information related to the virus. Please help share to any of your connections or friends that may benefit from the video. We are here to help and the more education that reaches these communities the more luck we may have with flattening the curve in our county and surrounding areas.  https://www.facebook.com/ChooseNanticoke/videos/2651253795111328/

 

Mensaje Urgente para la Comunidad Hispana

Se han comunicado con la parroquia personal que trabaja en los hospitales y están combatiendo el Coronavirus o COVID-19. Hay una preocupación muy grande por la comunidad hispana ya que nos han informado que los número de casos de contagio esta subiendo entre la comunidad hispana y la mayorías de los casos en el hospital son hispanos. Si nos fijamos en el mapa de Delaware en el condado de Sussex los pueblos más afectados son Milford y Georgetown.

Ahora sabemos que hay un debate de cerrar completamente ciertas compañías pero también la Comunidad Hispana aporta con seguir presentándose a trabajar en áreas donde hay alto contagio del virus y/o no están siguiendo los protocoles de seguridad como lavarse las manos, usar un tapa bocas o mascarillas, seguir los 6 pies de distancia entre personas, NO PRESENTARSE O SALIR DE CASA SI ESTA PADECIENDO SIMTOMAS DE ESTAR ENFERMO, etc.

Seamos realistas en este país, nadie se va morir de hambre ya que somos bendecidos con bancos de comidas y escuelas públicos que están regalando comida. Muchos de las compañías de billes o utilidades están  ofreciendo un plan económico si no pueden pagar ciertas facturas. El gobernador ha declarado que nadie puede ser desalojado de su vivienda por falta de pago o perder servicios por falta de pago. Así que la opción de quedarte en casa para proteger no solo tu salud si no de tu familia y de las demás personas es posible. Por favor hagamos conciencia!

También nos han informado que hay personas que pueden tener el virus sin saberlo, pero pueden contagiar. Es por eso que recomiendan el uso de mascarillas o tapa bocas cuando salimos. Personas que están padeciendo síntomas tiene  que aislarse completamente hasta 14 días para prevenir contagio. Esto incluye aislarse de su propia familia en su casa.

TENER FE IMPLICA OBEDECER Y SER HUMILDES NO EGOISTAS.

LETTER FROM FR COINE updated 5.22.2020

In May, we honor Mary and all mothers on the Eastern Shore

Dear Friends of BirthRight,

I have decided, with the approval of the board, to cancel this year’s Mother’s Day Rose Sale because of the pandemic that is ravaging our country and the rest of the world. It was very difficult to make this decision but it was necessary because of the many hours of planning and preparation that are needed for the Rose Sale to be successful. 
 
It is my sincere hope that churches and individuals will still be able to make a contribution or donation to Birthright in lieu of the Rose Sale so we can continue our Mission and Vision saving mothers and their precious Babies. 
 
Given the uncertainty of when parishes will be open, if you are able to make a donation in May, we would be most grateful.  However, if you are not able to make it in May, any donation you can afford will be graciously accepted throughout the year." 
 
You can write the checks out to Birthright of Delaware and in the memo section please write “Roses and your Parish affiliation”! Our mailing address is 1311 North Scott Street Wilmington DE 19806.  It will all be documented as normal.
 
Thank you for your continued generosity in helping Birthright achieve our mission.  We are most grateful for any amount you can contribute.  I ask our Lord and Savior to bless you and protect you during these next coming weeks. 
 
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at any time 302-656-7080 or 302-660-1087(c). 

 
Peace, 
Tinisha Brown

Responding to Coronavirus

 

In order to keep the Catholic community of Delaware and Maryland’s Eastern Shore up-to-date regarding our efforts to respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Diocese of Wilmington has set up this webpage (cdow.org/coronavirus).

At the advice of government officials, and after consultation with medical professionals, Bishop Francis Malooly has canceled all public Masses, weddings, baptisms, funerals, prayer services, confessions, etc., in the Diocese of Wilmington until further notice. The only sacraments that will be administered by priests will be when someone is in the danger of death.  This effort is designed to help safeguard the public and prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

“We do not take this action lightly and without prayerful consideration,” Bishop Malooly said. “We must put the health and well-being of our parishioners first. I invite the faithful to stay connected to their parish community electronically, and to participate in Mass via television and the Internet, during this challenging time.”

Additionally, all diocesan and parish Catholic schools and religious education programs, in Delaware and Maryland’s Eastern Shore, will be closed or canceled until May 18, 2020. The CYM  Spring Sports season has been canceled.

Keep up-to-date on local, national and international news during this challenging time. Visit www.TheDialog.org and sign-up for weekly and breaking news delivered to your inbox with The Angelus.

Bishop Malooly: Public Catholic Masses canceled in Delaware and Maryland’s Eastern Shore to help limit spread of coronavirus

Announced March 15, 2020...

At the advice of government officials, and after consultation with medical professionals, the bishop made the decision that goes in effect immediately and until further notice to help safeguard the public and prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

“We do not take this action lightly and without prayerful consideration,” Bishop Malooly said in a statement released by the diocese. “We must put the health and well-being of our parishioners first. I invite the faithful to stay connected to their parish community electronically, and to participate in Mass via television and the Internet, during this challenging time.”

The Diocese of Wilmington has set up a website – cdow.org/coronavirus – with information for Catholics in Delaware and Maryland’s Eastern Shore, including a viewable Sunday Mass recorded March 14 at Wilmington’s Cathedral of Saint Peter.

On March 13, the bishop dispensed of the Sunday obligation to attend Mass in the effort to limit the spread of the disease.

Regulations limiting large gatherings have been adopted in both states and the dispensation was intended to conform to those guidelines.

“Additionally, all diocesan and parish Catholic schools and religious education programs, in Delaware and Maryland’s Eastern Shore, will be closed or canceled for two weeks beginning Monday, March 16, 2020,” according to the statement March 13 from the diocese. “As of now, schools are scheduled to reopen on Monday, March 30, 2020. All CYM sports events have been cancelled until further notice.”

Schools superintendent Louis De Angelo alerted school communities of the decision March 13.

The Catholic Diocese of Wilmington was established in 1868 and comprises 56 parishes, 18 missions and 36 schools serving the State of Delaware and the nine counties of Maryland’s Eastern Shore.

Welcome
