LETTERS FROM THE DESERT NO. 2 PDF Print E-mail

.

By Fr. Peter Precourt, A.A.

Hello! Remember me? In early March I had returned to Massachusetts for a series of meetings. Upon my returned to El Paso on March 20th I encountered the newly mandated “stay at home” decree for the city of El Paso. All the churches, schools and non-essential businesses were closed. I was fortunate to be invited by the Bishop to concelebrate with him at the daily televised Mass at the seminary. Living directly across the street from the seminary made it very easy to attend. Monday through Friday, Mass is live-streamed for the diocese from this location. On Saturdays I join the Bishop at the cathedral for the Sunday vigil Mass at 4 pm. This Mass is live-streamed for the diocese and offered again on Sunday mornings by a local television station at 11 am. Often times at the celebration of the Mass, the Bishop introduces me to the people. There are many in the diocese who now know me even though I have not met them.

I remain here alone most of the time. I go out weekly for my groceries and daily for my 4-mile walk. Generally, I also take a brief walk in the evening around sunset. When I returned in March, spring had already begun in El Paso. I will include some pictures at the end of this letter.
