HOLY TRIDUUM/TRIDUO SAGRADO
SIPH URGING GREATER COMPLIANCE
Southeastern Idaho Public Health has reached out to all faith communities “urging GREATER action within the community to slow the spread of COVID‐19.”
“You should only leave the house to buy groceries one time per week if possible, to seek medical care, to exercise (while maintaining 6ft from others), if you are a caretaker for a loved one, or if you must go to an essential job.”
With only 20 ICU beds to serve over 120,000 residents in multiple counties, it’s imperative we do all we can to prevent community spread. “By restricting the number of people exposed to the virus at any one time, we can spread the number of cases over a longer length of time — hopefully enough time to manage health care staffing and resources better,” said Maggie Mann, Director.
Bishop Peter has urged us to comply with the stay-at-home order and to close our public campuses and buildings to the public. To do otherwise is to act recklessly and to put our larger community at risk. Apart from those who are helping us prepare and present our liturgies, parishioners are not to enter our sanctuaries at any time.
We know this is a painful sacrifice for our parishioners to not enter our houses of worship. But every difficulty has an opportunity to deepen our faith.
1) It can encourage us to create spaces of worship, prayer, and reflection in our homes and hearts,
2) to use this time of separation to deepen our appreciation for the many aspects of our faith, and
3) to pray in solidarity with those who live in places around the world that rarely if ever have had the access to the Sacraments we have enjoyed, or in some cases taken for granted.
In response to this extraordinary circumstance, we are doing our best to stream online liturgies and enriching content to help keep our community connected. We are developing a task force calling ministry to begin reaching out to those who are especially vulnerable in our parish. Please pray for all those who are risking their lives on the frontlines of this pandemic, for those suffering from the virus and their families, and for the souls who have already lost their lives.

PARISH PRAYER OF RENEWAL
On behalf of Father Henry Carmona, our deacon and parish staff, we welcome you to Holy Spirit Catholic Community and invite you to join the life of this vibrant Catholic Community.
Holy Spirit Catholic Community was formed from the merging of three parishes; St. Joseph, St. Anthony and St. Paul's. There is something for everyone here, there are ways to serve, pray and to worship, to learn and to grow in friendship and fellowship.

Connecting Through The Word
Not being able to gather for Mass can produce sadness and feelings of disconnect. In this video, Thomas Smith speaks about how even in these difficult times of separation we can CONNECT through the Word of God. It is one of the spiritual tables that feeds us and has sustained and given solace to the Church for 2,000 years. This video is how individuals, couples, families, and friends can gather around the Bible and pray with it using the practice of Lectio Divina (Sacred Reading). Please click the link above for weekly videos.
A handout with the steps of Lectio is available here:
Additionally, in the absence of the Mass on weekends, you can get the Connect Through the Word handout which has guided reflections on the Sunday Readings for individual reflection or to discuss with others. You can find it here (4th Sunday in Lent): https://drive.google.com/…/13zfCg5huW-YQgcV5ZGGHHAwB9…/view…
This week's readings are powerful and "enlightening" as you will see.
