The obligation to attend Sunday Mass remains dispensed for the time being while we slowly resume the public celebration of Mass. This is recognition of the fact that seating will initially be limited at each celebration of Mass due to the state’s requirements for social distancing and other health mandates. It also recognizes that the elderly, and most vulnerable, should remain sheltered at home for the time being. For this reason, we will continue to live stream the celebration of Mass while public worship slowly resumes.
We are happy to announce that we will be resuming public worship outdoors beginning on Ascension Thursday. From that day forward we will offer three masses each weekend. Masses will be held outdoors on Saturday at 5pm and on Sunday at 10am and 12pm. The 10am Mass will also be livestreamed every Sunday.
State and the Diocesan guidelines clearly state that only 50 people can gather for any public service.
Everyone must bring his/her own lawn chair, or a blanket, to be set up in the driveway, or on the grassy knoll opposite the main entrance to our church.
Social distancing will be strictly enforced, and all must wear facial masks.
Church and bathrooms are to be locked and closed off while the outside mass is going on.
People must observe social distancing,and wear a mask when lining up for communion.
People are strongly encouraged to receive communion in their hand, not on their tongue for obvious reasons. Masks must be worn until it is time to consume the holy eucharist.
There will be a collection basket as you come into mass. Please drop your envelope or your contribution in the collection basket.
Worship aids will not be provided. You may download the Readings and Responsorial Psalm to your smart phone or electronic device ahead of time and bring it to Mass with you if you would like to follow along.
In case of inclement weather outdoor mass will be cancelled
