Pray for the repose of the soul of Fr. Kieran
Please pray for the repose of the soul of Fr. Kieran Kleczewski, who passed away September 30th at 9:00 am in his home in Verrado. Fr. Kieran was released from the hospital and taken to his own home Monday afternoon so that he could be surrounded by family and friends who prayed for him and helped make him comfortable.
Fr. Kieran was born July 28, 1950 in Green Bay, Wisconsin, and Ordained to the Priesthood for St. Meinrad Archabbey in Indiana, on April 30, 1978. He incardinated into the Diocese of Phoenix in 1997.
Fr. Kieran served at St. Joseph Parish in Phoenix, Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish in Scottsdale, Holy Trinity Newman Center in Flagstaff, San Francisco de Asis Parish in Flagstaff, All Saints Parish in Mesa, St. Thomas Aquinas Parish in Litchfield Park, St. Michael Parish in Gila Bend, and here at St. John Vianney Parish in Sedona. Fr. Kieran also generously served as the Director of the Office of Worship from 2004-2020.
The funeral services have not been arranged at this time. When they do take place there will be restrictions due to COVID regulations. Thank you for your understanding.
May God grant Fr. Kieran a place in his Kingdom. Our Lady Queen of the Angels pray for him. St. John Vianney, pray for him, Venerable Padre Kino, pray for him.
May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
Schedule for October 12 & 13, 2020
Our Mass times are Saturday at 5:00 pm and on Sunday at 8:00 am & 10:00 am (Bilingual-English/Spanish) . Masses will be about 30 minutes long to minimize the amount of time we congregate together. Many of our parishioners are in a high-risk category so you are asked to follow these guidelines of you are planning to attend the Mass:
You must wear a mask
Please wash your hands before coming to church. There is also hand sanitizer at each of the entrances.
Sit in pews that are open (that is, not blocked off with purple tape)
You may sit together as a family but social distance between your group and the next family/person.
If the seating in the church seems to close for you then please go to the Social Hall where you will find additional seating. With the upgrade to the sound system you are able to hear clearly and view the Mass through the TV’s.
Also, Terrie Backes, our Music Minister, will be printing song sheets for us to use during Mass. It is very important that you take these with you when you leave church. You may place them in the receptacles by the exit. We do not want to reuse papers & books that others have used during this time of pandemic.
Follow the instructions of the Hospitality Ministers/Ushers for Communion procession and exiting the Church.
The collection basket will not be passed during the Mass. You may leave your weekly donation in the basket as you leave the Church.
If you are not feeling well, not comfortable congregating in larger groups, have an existing health issue please stay at home and watch the Mass on your TV or computer.
Drive through Communion: After viewing the Mass Communion will be offered in the parking lot of St. John Vianney from 9:00 – 9:30 am on Sunday, June 14. EM’s will be there to meet you in your car and offer Communion to you.
