  • Who shouldn’t come—The elderly, those with pre-existing conditions, those who are fearful or anxious, and those who are taking care of a sick or home bound person need not be concerned if they miss Mass as the dispensation from the Sunday obligation has now been extended.
  • What to Bring—Unless exempt, those attend Mass are required to wear masks or face coverings and are asked to bring hand sanitizer for use during the liturgy.
  • Social Distancing—Those attending Mass are required to keep proper social distancing while in the church. This will require everyone to remain 6 feet apart from anyone who is not a member of their household.

Important notice for Parishioners

DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS:

While Sunday Masses will resume during the weekend of July 4 & 5, the dispensation from the Sunday obligation previously granted to all Catholics of the Archdiocese by the Archbishop will continue to extend through Sunday, September 6, 2020.  The elderly, the sick, and those who care for anyone who is vulnerable remain encouraged not to attend at this time.

 The decision regarding whether to attend Mass in person is left to the individual.

  • If you or someone in your household is ill, especially with fever or flu-like symptoms or conjunctivitis, please do not enter the Church.

If you decide to attend Mass, please be charitable by protecting others and yourself.

 At all times, including entering and exiting the church, practice Social Distancing by staying at least 6 feet from people who do not live in your household.

  • You must wear a face mask or cloth face covering.
  • Do not shake hands with others.
  • Use hand sanitizers.
  • Do not congregate to socialize before or after Mass.

As we welcome you back and resume public liturgies together, please take precautions to stay safe.
