DIRECTIVES FROM THE DIOCESE OF PROVIDENCE IN RESPONSE TO THE CORONAVIRUS CRISIS
Please click HERE to read a reflection by Bishop Tobin dated April 20, 2020
Please see the following message from Bishop Tobin:
"In light of the growing coronavirus crisis in Rhode Island, in response to the request of public officials, and upon the recommendation of health experts, I hereby direct that the celebration of all public Masses and other liturgical services be suspended in the Diocese of Providence effective Tuesday, March 17, 2020 and continuing until further notice.
The celebration of funerals and weddings may continue, but must be celebrated without Mass using approved liturgical forms. Every effort should be made to limit the size of the congregation to necessary participants only and the health precautions previously announced by the Diocese of Providence and the State of Rhode Island should be carefully followed.
To the extent possible, churches should remain open during the day for personal prayer, devotions and visits to the Blessed Sacrament. Individual confessions may also be heard during this time.
This is an exceedingly difficult and painful decision, but it is necessitated by our commitment to promote the health and well-being of our brothers and sisters, especially the frail and the elderly. That is a moral priority we should all share. May we continue to pray for and support one another in these very trying times, and through the intercession of Saint Patrick, Saint Joseph and Our Lady of Providence, may God be with us."
--Please know the church will remain open during the day for private prayer. Individual confessions are available by request. Mass will be said privately each day for the intentions booked for that day. May God Bless all of us and keep us safe! -Father Varghese and Father Eric

First Saturday Devotions
First Saturday Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Beginning on Saturday morning November 2nd from 8:00 to 10:30 a.m, and every First Saturday thereafter, St. Luke’s will host a devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. In 1917, during her miraculous appearance to three children in Fatima, Our Lady announced that “… God wishes to establish in the world a devotion to My Immaculate Heart …” To honor God’s wishes, Our Blessed Mother asked us to devote every First Saturday in reparation to offenses and blasphemies against the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The devotion includes Mass, Adoration, Rosary, Confession, and a special 15 minute meditation “… to keep me company …” Furthermore, if a devotee attends five consecutive months, Our Lady promises “… to assist at the hour of death, with the graces necessary for salvation …” Please join us in honoring this special request from Our Mother Mary. The day will begin with Mass at 8:00 am. Refreshments will be served following the devotion.
