A Message from Fr. Eric

This week we celebrate the Feast of the Ascension of the Lord. The Feast of the Ascension commemorates Jesus' Ascension into heaven 40 days after His Resurrection. Ascension Day falls 40 days after Easter, on the 6th Thursday of Easter, but in some parts of the world, the solemnity is celebrated on the Sunday after the traditional date, as it is in the Diocese of Covington.

Forty Days after the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Acts of the Apostles records Jesus' Ascension into heaven. The Ascension is an important Christian feast attesting and celebrating the reality of the God-Man Jesus Christ's returning to the Father and promise to return again in the future Parousia. The Ascension is the final component of the paschal mystery, which consists also of Jesus' Passion, Crucifixion, Death, Burial, Descent Among the Dead, and Resurrection. Along with the Resurrection, the Ascension functioned as a proof of Jesus' claim that he was the Messiah. Finally, the Ascension was also the "final blow," so-to-speak, against Satan's power, and thus the lion (Jesus) conquering the dragon (Satan) is a symbol of the Ascension. Early Christian art and iconography portrayed the Ascension frequently, showing its importance to the early Church.

The Catholic Catechism summarizes three important theological aspects (with which most Christian churches agree) of the Ascension concisely:

• Christ's Ascension marks the definitive entrance of Jesus' humanity into God's heavenly domain, whence he will come again (cf. Acts 1:11).

• Jesus Christ, the head of the Church, precedes us into the Father's glorious kingdom so that we, the members of His Body, may live in the hope of one day being with Him forever.

• Jesus Christ, having entered the sanctuary of Heaven once and for all, intercedes constantly for us as the Mediator who assures us of the permanent outpouring of the Holy Spirit (665-667).

COVID-19 Protocols

May 13, 2021 - Protocols for Fully Vaccinated People

In an Executive Order, May 13, Gov. Andy Beshear lifted the mask and social distancing mandates for fully vaccinated persons. According to the Centers for Disease Control people are considered fully vaccinated:

1) two weeks after their second dose in a two-dose series such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or

2) a week after the single dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.

Anyone not meeting these requirements, regardless of age, are NOT fully vaccinated, according to the CDC.

After reviewing Gov. Beshear’s executive order, the following diocesan protocols have been updated and will take effect immediately:

— Fully vaccinated persons may attend Mass and other liturgical services without wearing a mask.

— In accordance with this new order, each pastor may determine how best to accommodate seating so that as many parishioners can safely return to the celebration of Mass.

Anyone wishing to continue to wear a mask for his or her own safety or peace of mind is certainly welcome to do so.

Persons who are not fully vaccinated — including priests, deacons and other ministers at the altar — must continue to wear a mask and social distance.

“Due to the sacrifices and courage of so many people to follow safety protocols and to be vaccinated as soon as the opportunity was available to them, it now seems like the day we have long hoped and prayed — the end of the pandemic — is nearing in the Diocese of Covington,” said Bishop Roger Foys. “I encourage those who are reluctant to be vaccinated to prayerfully consider doing so. I also ask everyone, at the direction of Pope Francis, to during this month of May continue praying the rosary every day for an end to the global pandemic.”

All other “Safety at Mass” protocols remain in effect.
