Effective May 15, Toby Barker, the mayor of Hattiesburg, has lifted the mask mandate in Hattiesburg. Masks will no longer be required in church, so you have options. If you still feel more comfortable wearing a mask, please do so, and if you are comfortable not wearing a mask, that is your option. We do ask, however, that you still be respectful of social distancing and try to keep at least 3’ apart from those sitting near you. We also will continue to sanitize the pews, so please continue to use the Lysol spray, and give your seating area a very light spray. Thank you for your co-operation. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, and we are moving toward some bit of “normalcy”, whatever that may be in the future.
Prayer to St. Thomas
Grant me, O Lord My God, a mind to know you, A heart to seek you, wisdom to find you, Conduct pleasing to you, Faithful perseverance in waiting for you And a hope of finally embracing you. Amen.
