An English Mass will be held at Kita 1 jo Catholic Charch & Obihiro Catholic Church .
Please come and celebrate the great occasion with us

As you are aware the spread of the Corona Virus has begun to disrupt our lives even here in Hokkaido. Wishing to err on the side of caution, in conversation with my consultors I have decided to ask the parishes in Hokkaido Diocese to refrain from having liturgical services for the next two weeks, February 27 (Thursday) to March 14 (Saturday). I would also ask that even Masses with few participants be included in this directive.

Without the Holy Spirit, God is distant,
Christ remains in the past,
the Gospel is a dead letter,
the Church is just an organization,
authority a domination,
mission is propaganda,
worship a ceremonial,
and Christian way of life is a servitude.

But in him: the cosmos is uplifted and groans
in giving birth to the kingdom.
the risen Christ is here,
the Gospel throbs with life
the Church is communion in the Trinity,
authority is a liberating service,
mission a Pentecost,
the liturgy both memorial and anticipation,
and human life is deified.
