Dear All Saints Parishioners,
We seem to be seeing the light at the end of the 2020/COVID 19 tunnel. I hope and pray it is not an oncoming train. I am writing today as your parish nurse. We have been blessed here at All Saints with the dedicated Ambassadors, who have given their time and talents in keeping all of us safe while we are at Mass. There have been a few hurdles making sure we had adequate coverage for each Mass. We always need to have spares in case someone can’t make it due to car troubles, work or last minute emergencies.
At this time we are looking at the Christmas and New Year’s Mass schedules. Our Ambassadors continue to help keep us all safe during this time. In the spirit of love and joy this Christmas I ask you to continue to be vigilante in caring for yourselves and others. Keep the following guidelines in mind when you are choosing how you will be attending Mass this Christmas.
- All Catholics are dispensed from the obligation to attend Mass at this time
- If you have any conditions which make you more susceptible to illnesses please take that into consideration when you are deciding whether or not to attend Mass in person or watch it online or on television
- If you are coming to Mass with your immediate household please sit together to make the best use of the seating space.
- Entrance is through the Grotto and Depot doors only; doors will be opened 30 minutes before Mass and the doors will be closed 5 minutes after Mass begins.
- There is ample handicap parking in front of the Grotto
- Hand sanitizer is at every door for your convenience
- Facemasks are required for everyone and masks must cover your nose and mouth completely
- Please make every effort to maintain a 6 foot social distance from anyone who is not in your group/household. Please note there are “X”s on the pavement outside and the floor inside.
- There will be no reservations; seating will be on a first come, first seated basis.
- An Ambassador will meet you at the door to guide you to your seat, please tell them how many people are in your group and cooperate with their directions
- Bathrooms are for EMERGENCY use only
- If you are experiencing any symptoms of illness: cough, fever, sneezing etc. please join us via Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/TheParishOfAllSaintsMillvilleNJ at 10 AM on Christmas Day
- Church is a place of prayerful silence and reflection, please refrain from conversations and silence your cell phones
- Holy Communion will be distributed after the Final blessing, your Ambassador will come to each pew when it is time to go up for Communion
- Those receiving on the hand will remove and secure their masks, have their hands sanitized by an Ambassador and then stand at a numbered place at the altar rail
- Those receiving on the tongue may stand or kneel at a numbered spot at the altar rail
- Everyone will exit through the Buck Street doors
- Please attempt to maintain a clear pathway, especially in front of the exit doors.
Thank you for your assistance in keeping everyone healthy! Have a Blessed Christmas and a Holy New Year!
What does the CARES Act mean for Charitable Giving?
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act create two temporary changes to the tax treatment of such donations. One is a universal deduction targeted primarily at the 90+% of the standard deduction taxpayers and the other is meant to incentivize the remaining high-income givers and corporations.
$300 Universal Deduction for the Donations up to $300. For the 9 out of 10 people who no longer itemize their charitable giving, the CARES Act will allow these individual taxpayers to deduct donations to charity of up to $300 on their 2020 federal tax return even though they take the standard deduction. Married filing jointly will get an above-the-line deduction of up to $600.
For those donors who are still able to itemize their deductions and therefore directly write off gifts to charity the current deduction cap is 60% of adjusted gross income. Corporations are able to deduct charitable donation up to 10% of taxable income.
The 60% of AGI limit is for giving to 501(c)(3) public charities. The deductibility of gifts to 501(c)(3) private foundations is capped at 30% and was not included in the legislation.
WHAT ABOUT THE IRA QUALIFIED CHARITABLE DISTRIBUTION (QCD)?
The CARES Act did not change the rules around the QCD, which allows individuals over 70 1/2 years old to donate up to $100,000.00 in IRA assets directly to charity annually, without taking the distribution into taxable income.
However, remember that under the CARES Act an individual can elect to deduct 100% of their AGI for cash charitable contributions. This effectively affords individuals over 59 ½ years old the benefits similar to a QCD; they can take a cash distribution from their IRA, contribute the cash to charity and may completely offset tax attributable to the distribution by taking a charitable deduction in an amount up to 100 percent of their AGI for the tax year.
The numbers were all in and the balls were tumbling as we ZOOMED the reverse 50/50.
It wasn't quite the same as the last Reverse Raffle but we did have fun. The Hospitality committee came through with hot dogs and snacks!! As we all sat back (socially distanced) and hoped for our number to be called last. The winners for the day were as follow:
10th prize - Pat & Bud Birmingham
9th prize - Justin Smith
8th prize - Linda Vaughn
7th prize - Ann Cassidy
6th prize - Frank & Peggy Ferrari
5th prize - Diane Nonnemacher
4th prize - Ed Kasuba
3rd prize - Ben Germanio
2nd prize - Phillip & Grace Blandino
1st PRIZE - Barbara Westog
We look forward to a bigger and better Reverse Raffle in 2021! If you want to get in on the next raffle the Santa's Jackpot is coming up soon. They make great stocking stuffers and you have better odds than lottery ticket! Tickets will be on sale at the Parish Office listen for the start date at Mass.
WELCOME HOME TO ALL SAINTS!
Important General Principles in Preparation for Public Mass starting with Saturday vigil Mass on June 13, 2020
- The General dispensation from obligatory Mass attendance continues. You are not obliged to attend. However, you are not dispensed from the Third Commandment, “Keep Holy the Sabbath”. Every Catholic must always keep the Lord’s Day set apart for God. It must be a DAY (not just an hour) given to the Lord in all our activity.
- If you are having any signs of a cold or flu, fever and/or cough, please stay at home and watch Mass on Comcast channel 22 Sunday at 12 Noon or live stream via our Facebook page at the same time, or any other Mass you are able to watch.
- As strange as this may sound, the diocese asks what my parents always insisted on:
“Please make sure you go to the bathroom BEFORE you go to Church.” The reason being, we cannot guarantee the cleanliness (i.e. sanitization) of the restroom between each use. Bathrooms are for emergency use only until further notice.
- Please make sure you wear a mask, scarf, or other appropriate face covering over your nose and mouth. If you are unable or unwilling, you are asked to refrain from attendance until it is no longer required by the bishop. Only children under the age of 2 are exempt by the diocesan guideline. If your health prohibits you, you are probably in a high risk category and it is not recommended that you come anyway.
- Remember charity above all! None of us like this situation. Many have strong feelings about these things. I simply ask that we treat each other and especially our volunteers with charity when you come to Holy Mass, in particular if you are asked to conform to the diocesan guidelines. Charity/love has been a hallmark of the Christian church since the beginning and I have found that to be the case here. Let us consciously make an effort to be extra charitable/loving at this strange time.
We have been preparing for you: Cleaning, measuring, and learning the diocesan norms. In an effort to keep everyone as healthy as possible these are the guidelines we are required to follow:
- Mass times are as follows:
Saturdays – 4 PM and 7 PM Spanish
Sundays - 8 AM, 10AM and 12:15 PM (to allow for cleaning between Masses)
- Enter – through the side doors of the church only (Depot and Grotto sides, North & South entrances)
- All Saints Ambassadors will meet you at each entrance, these volunteers are there to answer questions regarding seating, distancing etc.
- A collection basket will be at each entrance for your offertory, no collection will be taken up during Mass.
- Hand sanitizer will be available for your use at every entrance.
- Pews are taped off to allow for social distancing. We are currently using every 3rd
- In the center aisles if you are by yourself please sit where you are directed, (at either end of the pew or in the middle of the pew which is marked by blue tape, 3 per pew)
- In the side aisle pews one person may sit at each end. (2 per pew)
- People who live in the same household may all be seated in one pew.
- At this present time we are limited to 30% of our church capacity or a max of 167 persons. *(with 6 ft distancing only 70 individuals. The number can go up to 167 depending on the number of households that sit together.)
- People will enter on a first come, first seated bases.
- The sidewalks leading up to the entrance are marked with red Xs 6 feet apart. Please use the Xs to wait for an ambassador to direct you to your seat.
- We have all missed one another, however grouping together before or after Mass is discouraged for your safety.
- Father will enter from the Sacristy and the offertory procession will be omitted for now.
- The sign of peace will be omitted.
- Holy Communion will be distributed after the final blessing at the end of Mass.
- You are not obliged to go up to receive Holy Communion.
- The ambassadors will come to each pew starting from the front center of the church; you may exit the pew via the center aisle. (please lower/ remove your mask at this time)
- If you are not receiving Holy Communion and are leaving the Church please exit through the Buck Street doors (East side).
- If you are proceeding to Holy Communion please note the red Xs on the floor and follow the guidance of the ambassadors.
- You may go back to your pew for private prayer after you receive Our Lord.
- Once the center aisles have gone to Communion, the side aisles will be directed up to Communion.
- We ask that anyone who wishes to receive on the tongue you will be seated on the sides so that you will receive Communion last according to diocesan recommendations.
- Once you have made your thanksgiving after Communion you may exit through the Buck Street doors (East Side) and continue social distancing.
*Once maximum capacity has been reached parishioners may wait in their cars and receive Communion at the end of that Mass or stay for a guaranteed seat at the next Mass.
Update Saint John Bosco
During this winter we finalized an agreement of sale with Hendricks House. Hendricks House made the highest and best offer for the St John Bosco property. The sale is contingent upon several things but most importantly that they obtain zoning approval from the city of Millville and state approval to be able to open their state regulated halfway house use. Hendricks House is based in Vineland and has been in the Halfway House business for 27+ years. Their plan is to use the rectory to house up to 24 recovering women living in a 12 step sober environment. They plan to have their administrative offices in the church building as well as an Intensive Out Patient (IOP) treatment facility. Their program is for treating those people in ours and other communities that want to kick the bonds of addiction. People that live there have been through primary treatment and are trying to get their lives back on track by living in a sober environment. The women living in the house will sleep and eat there. During most days they will be working in local industries. At night most will attend AA and NA meetings to assistant in their recovery. For those that need extra counseling they will meet with councilors in small groups to become more comfortable with the sober life style. If you have any questions about how the facility will work or if you have a family member that needs treatment contact the executive director of the Hendricks House Group, Damaris Pirillo at 856-794-2443 ext 135.
