See change in mass schedule beginning last week of May
Our Bishop has mandated that as of May 4th parishes can begin public masses as long as strict guidelines are maintained.
However, the faithful continue to be dispensed from the Sunday mass obligation through June 30, 2020. Those who are at risk because of underlying health issues or who are over 60 are strongly encouraged to avoid the risk of attending public masses. You may view the week end mass HERE.
For your convenience and so that everyone may be accommodated the Sunday liturgy will be celebrated at 5:30 on Thursday evening, 4:00 on Saturday evening and 8:00 am on Sunday morning. You are asked to call and register for a particular mass to avoid having to turn people away should a particular mass be filled because of restrictions.
GUIDELINES FOR ATTENDING A PUBLIC MASS:
1. Anyone who is symptomatic or who has been exposed to another with the virus within 14 days are not permitted to attend.
2. Everyone over two years of age must wear a mask and maintain distancing from other individuals or families when entering the church.
