Dear friends,

The State of Oregon has lifted the indoor mask requirement, effective March 12, 2022. In conjunction with this ruling, masks will no longer be required of visitors and guests at Mount Angel, although we recognize and respect that some may choose to continue to mask. All are welcome.

We also recognize that the suffering, illness, and grief caused by the pandemic remains for many, in our own country and around the world. For that reason, we monks plan to continue to sing the Stella Caeli each evening after Compline, asking Our Lady to intercede for us and end this plague of our time. We pray for the faithful departed and those whose lives continue to be disrupted by this illness, especially healthcare workers.

Many of you have tuned in and followed us in prayer these past two years on our livestream liturgy channel. We will continue to livestream our daily Mass and the Divine Office for the time being, and we are grateful to know that so many are following us in prayer in this way.

Please know that all of us at Mount Angel are grateful for your prayers and friendship during this time.

Peace to you,
Abbot Jeremy Driscoll, O.S.B.

Pray for us, loving mother.Holy Virgin of Guadalupe, Queen of the Angels and Mother of the Americas. We fly to you today as your beloved children. We ask you to intercede for us with your Son, as you did at the wedding in Cana.

Pray for us, loving Mother, and gain for our nation and world, and for all our families and loved ones, the protection of your holy angels, that we may be spared the worst of this illness.

For those already afflicted, we ask you to obtain the grace of healing and deliverance. Hear the cries of those who are vulnerable and fearful, wipe away their tears and help them to trust.

In this time of trial and testing, teach all of us in the Church to love one another and to be patient and kind. Help us to bring the peace of Jesus to our land and to our hearts.

We come to you with confidence, knowing that you truly are our compassionate mother, health of the sick and cause of our joy.

Shelter us under the mantle of your protection, keep us in the embrace of your arms, help us always to know the love of your Son, Jesus. Amen.

Please send us your prayer intentions during this very difficult time for our nation and the world.
