Flu Stuff

H1N1 seems to be sweeping through here in the area of Saint Middle School. Several of our youngsters now have it, and some schools are reporting between 25-50% of the students and staff are out with flu-like illness. The local hospital had 100 cases last weekend, and all the staff are gloved, masked and gowned.

We are moving into modified liturgical/pastoral procedures (no physical contact at the Peace, I will intinct the bread and give it to each person at the rail rather than having a common cup, urging those who are sick to stay home and request home communion visits).

Saying a prayer that all of our folks get through this. One death is too many.
