The 7:30 a.m. Sunday Mass will be returning on August 30, 2020.
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 Sunday Masses is 100 people. (As of Addendum 4 from the Archdiocese of Newark, dated June 23, 2020, which states that parishes may have up to 25% capacity or 100 people, whichever number is LOWER.)
b.) A mask MUST be worn and a distance of six feet must be maintained between persons outside individual families.
c.) Registration is REQUIRED. To best protect the safety and wellness of our entire parish, the Archdiocese has mandated a registration system that will allow us to contact trace in the event that anyone becomes ill. You will be able to sign up for Masses in weekly blocks on EVENTBRITE. Go to our main page and click on the times you'd like to attend.
d. 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 50 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. So that’s why we have to register for the Mass we want to go to. We’ll also be adding new greeters to help the ushers find a place for you to be during 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!
ALL OF OUR MASSES WILL CONTINUE TO BE LIVESTREAMED ON:
