Below are details regarding our reopening. Please also visit our Facebook page.

Our new summer Mass schedule beginning June 13 / 14:

Reopening details:

The church will only be opened at a reduced capacity and only certain pews will be used to maintain social distance. We have decided that the church will be filled on a first come, first served basis, and seating will take place from front to back and only down the center aisle. Ushers will be present to assist. Once the capacity is reached, we will not be able to allow any others to enter.

- Masks must be worn by those over the age of 2 until it is your turn to receive communion. You are encouraged to bring your own sanitizer, and sanitizer will be located at all entrances.

- Restroom use should be restricted to emergencies only.

- Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, altar servers, the choir, and deacons will NOT be ministering at this point in time.

-Entrance to the church will be available from the front doors only to restrict the flow of people. The side doors close to the sanctuary will be available for exit only.

- No one should enter the sacristy (other than confessions on Saturday at 3) or choir loft for any reason.

- All hymnals and Mass cards have been removed. The Sign of Peace will not be exchanged.

- Holy Communion will take place after the final blessing. Gloves may not be worn for reception of Holy Communion and your mask should only be removed when it is your time to receive. Reception on the tongue will not be available.

We thank you for your patience and prayers as we adjust and adapt throughout this phased reopening process.
