COVID-19 Updates

Updated: July 1, 12:00pm
Dear Blessed Sacrament Parish Community,
Our church is open for public Masses. We are still in the midst of a pandemic, so Mass will look and feel different than the last time we gathered in March. Below you will find the guidelines for Mass at Blessed Sacrament.

Mass Times

Saturday at 4:00pm
Sunday at 10:00am (outdoors weather permitting, see information below)

Seating

  • Certain sections and pews will be roped off
  • Each person/family should maintain 6ft of social distance between the next person or household in the pews and at all times while in the building and on the grounds
  • Please follow the instructions of the ushers for seating and recognize you may not be seated where you usually sit

To Combat the Spread of COVID-19

  • Everyone is required to wear a face mask while in the church
  • Hand sanitizer will be available at the entrance, please use it to sanitize your hands before coming in
  • There will be no worship aids or hymnals, you are asked to sing softly or hum along
  • The font will remain drained
  • Pews and surfaces will be sanitized between Masses
  • Communion will be distributed at the end of Mass and you will leave the church immediately after you receive

Outdoor Mass

You may bring a chair or remain in your car. There will be a specific section for chairs. If you bring your own chair, please park near the playground, so those remaining in their cars can be closer to the altar.

Other notes

  • The max capacity per Mass will be 125 people
  • Doors will open 30 minutes before Mass begins
  • The chapel will be roped off and votive candles will not be available at this time
  • The church building will remain closed in order to ensure clean and sanitized surfaces for Mass
  • Bulletins will continue to be available electronically only
The Sunday obligation has been dispensed until August 30, 2020. We will continue to record Mass and make it available on our YouTube page. If you are at risk, immunocompromised, or feeling unwell in any capacity, please stay home. By stopping the spread of COVID-19, we will be able to worship together as a whole community sooner.

The Parish Center is open from 10:00am to 2:00pm by appointment only.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Dear Blessed Sacrament Parish Community,

Although we are not able to gather together physically for Mass, we hope that you will join us in prayer as we live-stream Evening Prayer on Wednesdays at 7:00pm and Mass on Sundays at 9:00m. You can find them here.

Ansley Dauenhauer will be putting together Children’s Liturgy of the Word services for kids as well. Watch them here.

We have not received word on an official day that we will be able to offer public Masses, but please know you are in our prayers always!
