SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- A message from Father Michael Ward of Immaculate Heart of Mary (IHM) parish in Scotch Plains.
While Mass will not be celebrated publicly, the church will remain open from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. for private prayer. There will be some resources available, i.e. Stations of the Cross booklets, to help you in your prayer. Whether in church or at home I would encourage you to spend some time in prayer each day seeking our Lord's comforting presence.
Mass continues to be live-streamed each morning at 8:30 a.m. (subject to change) on Facebook
and soon on Youtube, and is available later in the day on the IHM website
. On Sunday, Mass will be live-streamed at 10:00 a.m. in the same manner.
The IHM office and adoration chapel will remain closed, but we will be monitoring our voice mail and email. If you need our help, please reach out, and we will contact you as soon as possible.
We will continue to clean the church and sanitize surfaces on a regular basis and will continue to monitor the situation and update you.
