Dear parishioners,

As we reopen our churches for the celebration of the Mass and Sacraments with the People of God present and actively participating, we recognize that we cannot eliminate the very possible risk of infection from the novel coronavirus or COVID-19. However, your parish priests and I are committed to mitigating the risk as much as possible. We reopen because we believe as Church that there are no substitutes for the reception of the sacraments and our first priority is to be the sign of hope and instrument of the salvation of the entire human race.

REOPENING GUIDELINES

While the Church is reopening for Mass, at this time out of being abundantly cautious, Religious Education Classes remain suspended until further notice. Parents are encouraged to continue with “at home learning” with materials provided by the office of Religious Education.

Archbishop Thomas Wenski issued a communication that on Tuesday May 26th, we will resume celebrating daily Masses with congregations. The Sunday Masses will begin on the Vigil of Pentecost, May 30th.

  • Entrance to the Church will be through the front main doors and hand sanitizers will be available there. The side doors will be used to exit only. The Church will be sanitized between services.
  • Worshipers are asked to wear a face mask and to keep it on during Mass, removing it only to receive Holy Communion. (Please wear your face mask out of respect for and charity towards your fellow parishioners.)
  • For those attending Mass, there must be “socially distanced”, 6 feet apart (in all directions). Families living in the same household can sit together. In approaching the altar to receive Holy Communion please maintain proper social distance.
  • No hand holding during the praying of the Lord’s Prayer and there will be no exchange of the Sign of Peace.
  • At this time there will be no other parish activities or meetings, except virtual ones until further notice.
  • We will continue to livestream the Sunday Mass for the benefit of the homebound. If you are homebound and need to receive a Sacrament, please call the Parish Office.
  • The dispensation from the obligation of attending Mass on Sunday continues indefinitely. The sick or those with flu-like symptoms, should stay at home. The frail elderly and those with underlying conditions and their caregivers are encouraged to stay at home. If you are fearful, stay home.

Good judgment and reason should guide your decision as to when you should resume coming to Sunday Mass.
