Wherever you are on your faith journey, the communities of Clyman, Elba, and Reeseville welcome you to our 3 parishes. We are 3 small parishes who rely mostly on volunteer work to accomplish ministry and maintenance work. Our parishes missions are to have a movement of growing disciples of Jesus Christ committed to loving God, loving others, and making disciples. Orthodox in our Roman Catholic faith, we seek to creatively serve the New Evangelizaation, by bringing the unchurched in our community to Christ.

Plans for Resuming Sunday Mass for the Tri-parishes
1. When: starting Pentecost Weekend May 30 and 31.
St. Columbkille at 5:00 p.m. Saturday, 65 Person Capacity
Holy Family Parish at 8:00 a.m. Sunday, 50 Person Capacity
St. John the Baptist Parish at 10:00 a.m. Sunday, 65 Person Capacity
2. What: a simple form of the mass of the day.
3. Who: we ask that we keep this to current or potential members of the
triparishes. If you are sick in any way please stay home or if you have a
health condition that makes you susceptible to such a serious respiratory
The Archbishop asks us to limit attendance to 25% of the church’s capacity
(see above); if we have too many people at any mass we will need volunteers
to leave and be assured a spot at the next mass.
Both Ss. John and Columbkille have hearing only seating in the lower levels.
4. Where: We will use every other pew and start filling from opposite
ends (right/left) to maximize distance between people.
5. Cleaning: the plan is to close doors after mass and space will be free
of possible virus in 4 days. If we need the space more frequently for a
funeral or adoration, we will clean as necessary with dawn dish soap water.
6. For communion distribution we will release one pew at a time with
6 feet of room between each family.
7. There will be no choir. We are allowed one keyboard player and one
cantor per mass with minimal congregational singing.
Archbishop Listecki has outlined a 3 phase approach to resuming all operations in the parishes. To view the complete document go: https://www.archmil.org/Our-Faith/CoVID-19-Updates.htm
