A few things to keep in mind for attending Mass… 

    • You will be required to wear a mask during Mass. We would ask that you bring one with you. If you are at all uncomfortable with attending Mass in public, then please feel free to stay home. The Cardinal is keeping the requirement to attend Mass lifted.
    • The doors to the church will open 30 minutes before Mass begins. There can be no gathering before or after Mass; please wait in your car if you arrive early.
    • You will be allowed into only one entrance of the Church. Assistants will direct you and greet you there.
    • We will now check off your name as you enter our Churches. If you have not signed up via SignUpGenius, we will ask you to register, if there is room. You will be seated as safe distancing capacity allows.
    • Our churches have been marked for safe social distancing. Please sit in the locations that we have indicated. Immediate family members may sit together.
    • There will be no Missalettes or Hymnals in the pews. Please feel free to bring your own personal Magnificat or something similar, that you will take home with you.
    • There will be very limited singing during the Mass.
    • There will be no holding of hands during the Lord’s Prayer. There will be no exchange of Peace.
    • There will be no collection taken at Mass. Please continue to contribute electronically or via mail. At each Mass, there will be a collection basket at the front doors of the church for those who want to bring their donations, but envelopes will NOT be available.
    • During communion, you will be instructed on how to approach the altar. Please follow the guidelines.
    • When Mass has ended you will be instructed on how to leave the church.  Please follow the guidelines for a safe and orderly departure.
