Safety Guidelines

We will be following very strict social distancing protocol in order to protect the safety of all in our community. Please take a careful look at the guidelines below and help us resume the public celebration of Mass by following them:

1. Every person age 2 or older must be wearing a protective face mask at all times.

2. Social distancing must be observed at all times, please stay 6 feet away from others when on Church property.

3. We will be opening the doors approximately 30 minutes before the start of each Mass. Please respect these times as we need to thoroughly sanitize the Church between each Mass.

4. Every other pew will be used in order to maintain the 6-foot distance.

5. One household will be seated at each end of the pew.

6. Once we have reached the current required capacity, people are welcome to stand or sit outside on the various patios. If you would like to sit, we ask that you bring your own lawn chairs. Please maintain the appropriate 6 foot distance outside.

7. Communion will take place at the end of Mass. Immediately after receiving Communion please exit the Church reverently and proceed straight to the parking lot without gathering in the courtyard. Communion will be the consecrated bread only and must be received in the hand.

In order to maintain appropriate social distancing and operate in a manner that is both safe and reverent, it is extremely important that you follow the guidance of ushers at Mass. The ushers are being specially trained to help us modify our seating arrangement and liturgy. Your cooperation is vital in order to continue the public celebration of Mass.

Those who are ill or vulnerable are asked to remain at home. We will continue to livestream the 9am Mass (note the new time).

All Catholics are still dispensed from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass or holy day Masses until further notice.

Those who are considered vulnerable due to age or health are encouraged to attend weekday Masses (rather than Sunday Masses). Our weekday Mass schedule will be posted soon.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and consideration for the wellbeing of all. It is with great joy that we look forward to celebrating Mass together as a community of faith!
