  • COVID-19 is still extremely contagious, especially indoors or in closed settings
  • Live-streamed Mass will continue @ 11:00am
  • Anyone who is sick or at risk should NOT come to church; that is NOT punitive but, rather, common sense and an act of charity toward your neighbor
  • Masks must be worn (no exceptions), physical contact of any kind must be avoided, social distancing must be practiced, proper sanitation must be observed at all public, in church Masses.

Those who do choose to come will see many necessary changes:

  • All missals, hymnals, printed materials & pamphlets have been removed from the churches
  • Holy Water fonts or receptacles have been emptied
  • Congregational singing is discouraged
  • Choirs are not to be used
  • The presentation of offertory gifts is prohibited
  • Physical contact of any kind at the sign of peace is prohibited
  • A single file, socially distant communion line will form
  • Communion in the hand is strongly preferred
  • An orderly exit from the church must occur, dismissal pew by pew
  • Only clergy will be permitted in the sanctuary
  • No public gatherings or greetings before or after Mass
  • Group devotional observances, and parish social gatherings are suspended until further notice
