Mass looks a little different than you are used to. It is REQUIRED for people to register all household members who would like to attend Mass. We have registration for all weekend Masses and Christmas Masses as well. For daily Masses we ask only that you sign in with your name and contact information. Masses can accommodate 120 attendees. Even though we are offering public Masses, we will continue to have Mass available for online viewing every week. Archbishop Etienne has also extended the dispensation for attending Sunday Mass and we encourage vulnerable people to participate in the weekly Masses from our website. Contact Anne Frederick for any questions.
In order to register, you must provide your name and a phone number or email. This will sign you up for Flocknotes, our communication system. If you are not a member of our parish, contact the office when you wish to be removed from parish communications; at this point you will only be contacted if there is an announcement specific to the Masses. All people attending Mass must wear a mask and must self-screen for symptoms of illness: fever, cough, loss of smell or taste, gastro-intestinal upset. When you arrive, please find seating that most closely matches the size of your group. If you are single, for example, please do not sit alone in a group of four chairs, but if all single seating is taken, you may take the smallest available grouping.
- Registration closes each weekend on Saturdays at 1 pm, except for weekday masses. Signups for all Holy Week Masses will close Wednesday, March 31st at noon. While it is possible to sign-in on the day of Mass, it is easier for everyone if you pre-register, and you risk being turned away as more people are able to come.
- Please cancel your registration if you find you are unable to attend, if possible before Saturday at 1 pm before that Mass. If you have a fever of 100.4 degrees or higher, a cough, or other symptoms of illness, we ask you not to attend Mass even if you registered.
- We expect that you will minimize your risk of contracting Covid19 by sitting only with members of your household. We understand that you may have social "bubbles" and may be coming with people outside your immediate household. We may ask you to break up your group. If you absolutely must sit together, understand that you do so at your own risk.
- After Mass, please do not congregate in groups. We all miss social interactions! but we need to maintain our distance from one another for several more months yet.
