DISTRIBUTION OF HOLY COMMUNION AND PUBLIC CELEBRATION OF MASS
The Distribution of Holy Communion and public Celebration of Mass will begin June 13, at 4:00 PM, and June 14, at 8:00 AM.
The number of persons permitted to attend Mass in a church or other approved indoor location is not determined by a set number recommended by public health personnel. It is determined by the number of persons who can be accommodated within that space according to the plan for safe physical distances in each church. We are using the standard of 6 feet between those not from the same household. Therefore, the calculation of this number of persons will take into account couples or families who reside together in the same dwelling and may sit together.
If the weather permits, these two Masses will be celebrated outside near the statue of St. Joseph. We will use a ‘bring your own lawn chair’ policy for a while. People who do not fit into the designated area may remain in their Cars during Mass and we will bring communion to the parking lot areas. All are reminded that the Christian faithful are not obliged to participate at Mass on Sunday due to the circumstance of the Coronavirus pandemic. This remains in effect until further notice.
Everyone is still strongly urged to view the celebration of Sunday Mass on TV, or via the internet.
BEGINNING JUNE 13 and 14, Sr. Linda will be available in front of the Church for distribution of Holy Communion on Saturdays at 5:30 PM, and Sundays at 9:30 AM and 11:00 AM. You are free to remain in your cars or to come to the outside entrance near the chapel.
Again, please remember to wear your Mask.
