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
Please print off a worship aid and bring it with you. A limited number will be available at Mass.
The font will remain drained
Pews and surfaces will be sanitized between Masses
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.
The max capacity per Mass will be 200 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 and a small number will be available at each indoor Mass
Information Regarding the Parish Center
- 8:00 am to 8:00 pm Monday – Wednesday
- 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Thursday & Friday
- The building will only be open on Saturday and Sunday if there is a scheduled event
- Even though we are “open for business,” all exterior doors will remain locked as well as office entrance doors
- Meetings in the Parish Center and School Building are allowed, but they must adhere to the State Covid 19 rules for gathering indoors.
- We are also implementing participant sign in and hand sanitizing protocols. Upon entering either building participants will need to sanitize their hands and fill out a sign-in sheet for that meeting. Meeting sheets will be maintained to be used in tracing efforts in the event of a possible COVID-19 exposure.
Each group is making accommodations for virtual participation. We are now livestreaming 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.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
