COVID-19 Guidelines
May  12, 2020

Dear Parishioners,

 

The following is a list of guidelines we will follow as we continue to celebrate Mass in-person during the pandemic.

  1. If you have a cough and/or fever, or if you feel ill, please stay home.

  2. As of this moment, Bishop Konderla has extended dispensation for the Sunday Mass Obligation until further notice.  Please do join us for Mass, as we are taking many precautions for everyone's safety.

  3. We will be using the HANDICAPPED and the LOWER WEST DOORS ONLY!!!  There is hand sanitizer and extra masks just inside the door.  Please sanitize your hands upon entering and before leaving the church.

  4. When entering the church, the Ushers will be taking your temperature with a THERMAL THERMOMETER. If your temperature is 100.0 or above we will ask that you please go home so as to keep those in attendance safe.

  5. The Cry Room will not be available for use at this time.

  6. We will social distance in every other pew and ask you to sit 6 feet apart.  Families may sit together.

  7. There will be limited LECTORS, SERVERS, GREETERS, OR GIFT BEARERS until further notice.

  8. There will be NO ROSARY before Mass.

  9. There will be Collection Baskets in the back that you my drop your contribution in either before or after Mass.  Now may be a good time to sign up for the online option - call the office for more information. Thank you for your continued support.

  10. It is strongly recommended for everyone to wear a mask - they are available at the entrances.

  11. Please receive Communion in the hand.

  12. There will be NO Sign of the Peace.

  13. At the end we ask that you refrain from gathering in the Church, if you would like to talk, please go outside.

  14. If you are over 65 years of age, or if you have underlying conditions that make you vulnerable, you might consider attending the Vulnerable Population Mass at St. John - noon on Thursday.  Only those of the Vulnerable Population and their transportation are requested to attend this Mass.  We have lots of space for extra social distancing.

 

 

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.  We pray together for an end of the pandemic and for the safety of all.

In humble gratitude,

Fr. John and Fr. Carlos
