Bishop Lucia has announced that gatherings of 10 people or less are now permitted for public worship. To help facilitate our move toward pubic celebrations, and to avoid the uncomfortable situation of turning parishioners away at our doors, we are requiring a Registration for each Mass.
EACH individual person attending must submit a separate registration.
NOTE: If you Register for a Mass and later find you are unable to attend, please let the Office know ASAP. This may allow another parishioner the opportunity to celebrate Mass.
Diocese Guidelines for PARISHIONERS
In order to permit the celebration of Mass and the sacraments in a dignified, safe, and healthy manner, each parishioner must do the following
Register in advance for Mass (not to exceed guidelines - currently 10)
Remain home if sick, symptomatic or vulnerable (i.e. 65 and older with an underlying health condition, etc.)
Wear a face mask in church (required) and, if possible, bring personal hand sanitizer
Observe the commands on the posted signage and follow the directives of the ushers
Acknowledge that seating will be different from the “usual” pew
For Reception of Holy Communion
The Precious Blood will not be offered
Reception will be in the HAND ONLY - not on the tongue (as per updated Diocese guidelines).
Receive the Body of Christ in the hand, step aside, remove your mask, consume the Eucharist, return your mask
