Due to the current and ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and out of an abundance of concern for the elderly members of our community, the Helias Foundation and Helias Catholic High School have with heavy hearts together decided to cancel our annual Thanksgiving Day Mass and luncheon this year. Please understand that we did not come to this decision lightly or without significant consideration to everyone it affects. However due to the very nature of the event, the age and risk factors shared by the vast majority of attendees, and with no feasible method of hosting and accomodating a properly socially distanced event of this scale, both the school and the Foundation have mutually and wholeheartedly agreed that the lives, health and well-being of our community members are far too valuable to put any of them at risk by holding such an event at this time.
We sincerely apologize for any let down this announcement may cause. We promise we're just as disappointed as anyone.
