DIOCESE OF LAS VEGAS TO FOLLOW GUIDANCE OF RESTORATION COUNCIL FOR REOPENING
Las Vegas, NV—Bishop George Leo Thomas, Ph.D., the Bishop of the Diocese of Las Vegas, said today that while he is pleased that houses of worship have been deemed essential services by the federal government, the reopening of the parishes of the Diocese of Las Vegas will be led by its Diocesan Restoration Council.
“I established the Council to ensure the safe and systematic reopening of our parishes in a manner that follows and respects the guidelines and limitations provided by health officials and the State of Nevada. It is essential that we are mindful of necessary precautions and safety recommendations for the health and well-being of all of our people,” Bishop Thomas said.
The Diocese of Las Vegas is currently under a discontinuance order until May 31, 2020.
The Diocesan Restoration Council is chaired by Mr. John Kilduff, President of Bishop Gorman High School and is comprised of representatives from a wide array of disciplines including medical, gaming, education, civic, law enforcement, engineering, logistics and pastoral ministry.
The Council has met several times and is working on an established set of protocols based on guidance and recommendations that have been made available to date. They will be taking this new development and guidance under advisement and will be working to finalize plans for the reopening of parishes.
Further announcements will be made once the plans have been finalized to include timing.
To celebrate Pentecost (Sunday, May 31), the descent of the Holy Spirit on the Church, you can pray the Holy Spirit Novena! The Pentecost novena is the first novena. The disciples waited in unity and prayer for the Holy Spirit for nine days after Jesus’ ASCENSION TO HEAVEN (May 21). Jesus asked them to pray constantly in the upper room until the descent of the Holy Spirit. “They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers.” – Acts 1:14 Click here to find more novenas like this one.
It is a powerful and moving novena based on the fruits of the Holy Spirit that is meant to help us open ourselves up to the third person of the Holy Trinity. We pray this novena as a preparation for the feast of Pentecost on Sunday, May 31.
Pray with great confidence and trust in our God who is all Good and Loving. Please click the icon ABOVE for the Holy Spirit for the Novena.
Happy Mother's Day
Mother's Day Prayer
as a mother gives life and nourishment to her children,
so you watch over your Church.
Bless our mother.
Let the example of her faith and
love shine forth.
Grant that we, her family,
may honor her always
with a spirit of profound respect.
Grant this through Christ our Lord.
PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS
Lord Jesus, Son of the eternal Father and Mary Immaculate, grant those among us who are being called to a vocation to priesthood or religious life, the generosity necessary to follow their call, and the courage required to overcome all obstacles to their vocation. Give parents that faith, love, and spirit of sacrifice which will inspire them to offer their children to God’s service and to rejoice whenever one of their children is called to the priesthood and religious life. Let your example and that of your Blessed Mother and Saint Joseph encourage both young people and parents and let your grace sustain them. Amen.

AN ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION
An Act of Spiritual Communion
I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there
and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.
SCAM Warning: Please be aware that there are already multiple scams being circulated about the coronavirus – including attempts at trying to pitch ‘early government refund payments, hawk bogus vaccines and cures, and soliciting funds from fake religious/religious organizations. Please be on guard about this and let your parishioners know that the Diocesan Bishop, priests, deacons, and parishes and Diocese will never make these types of calls or communications. One parish and one office in the chancery have already received these calls.
