HOLY WEEK - March 27 - April 4, 2021
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
(Please read announcements at the bottom)
We are both joyful and grateful for the continued option to celebrate Mass indoors this weekend.
To give those at greater risk of contracting COVID-19 the possibility to fully participate in Mass without worry,
all attending masses should wear masks at all times inside the church building
. During communion, lower your face-covering to consume the Eucharist and reposition it immediately thereafter.
AS A REMINDER: The Sunday Mass dispensation still holds, for those who are high risk, uncomfortable or unable to attend Mass right now.
Our capacity under physical distancing guidelines is at 580 individuals. Please read the below carefully for instructions on Phase 2.5 guidelines and Mass times.
Maintain 6' of distance between you and others outside of your immediate family/members with whom you co-habitate.
Wearing a face-covering or mask is mandatory for all masses.
Communion will be brought to the pews. PLEASE DO NOT MOVE FROM YOUR SEAT. Communion will only be distributed in the Species of the Body. We recommend that everyone receive by hand for the general safety of all our parishioners, including the high risk and elderly. Those seating on the chairs are asked to stand or kneel to recieve Holy Communion.
The Sign of the Peace should only be exchanged within households.
Refrain from singing to minimize the potential for high viral load into the atmosphere.
After Mass, please exit through the nearest door as sanitizing procedures will be conducted between Mass times.
