Father Gregory , as soon as possible, got permission to hold Masses outdoors. Three services a weekend and the rain has stayed away. There is a 250 people limit and we have come close at times.

He also has been holding Night Prayers on Facebook Live when he "has internet connection." The number of connections varies but he has had more than fifty families connected at times.

He promoted the Relevant Radio Mass in the bulletin as an option for those who could not get out to live Mass.

He is on KYES (Relevant Radio) on Fridays talking about being a rural pastor and relating to people by telling stories of rural life. He also prays the rosary on another radio station each week.

He has great sermons and his independent singing is beautiful.
