SCHEDULE CHANGE IN DAILY MASSES FOR WEEK OF JANUARY 17-22:
*Fr. Sam will be recovering from a medical procedure this week so there will only be one morning Mass celebrated Jan. 17–22 at 8:45 am. Intentions for the 7:30 am Masses have been moved to the 8:45 am Mass for this week.
The Rectory will be open:
Monday- Friday 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Saturday 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
a.) The maximum number of people who can be present for Masses is 150 people.
b.) A mask MUST be worn and a distance of six feet must be maintained between persons outside individual families.
c.) When Mass is over, please leave promptly so that we can immediately begin sanitizing the Church.
The Church will remain open for private prayer at the following times:
a. Monday-Friday: 9:30 – 10:30 a.m.; 12:00 – 1:00 p.m.
b. Saturday & Sunday: 12:00 – 2:00 p.
Baptisms, weddings, and funerals can be resumed with all cautionary social-distancing measures in place, with a maximum of 150 people present.
Please be aware that there still will be a risk for anyone who attends a Mass. Even with the best health practices and strict social distancing, anyone who enters a public space should recognize there is a risk of contracting the coronavirus.
We want to make every effort to ensure that these health practices will be followed by us. So, we all need to cooperate with each other. We’re limited by the state and diocese to have no more than 100 attendees per Mass. After any service, we will sanitize the church and bathrooms. I’m sure that if we follow these protocols, we can reduce the risks.
We want to thank you all for your patience and understanding. We realize that these precautions are inconvenient and cumbersome. However, our greatest priority is to help us all to worship in a setting where we all feel safe and secure. Thank you! We look forward to seeing your faces again!
MASSES WILL CONTINUE TO BE LIVESTREAMED ON:
