We are alternating Sunday Masses of “A and B groups.”  Some parishioners have been re-assigned to the alternate group in an effort to "balance" the Masses. If you are on schedule B and not coming to Mass this Sunday, please call someone on Schedule A and offer your spot to them.

            Things You Need to Know as We Resume Indoor Mass

1.  Current guidelines will remain in place.  Face coverings will still be required, you must be on the list to attend and six foot social distancing will be maintained inside the church. 

2.  We will be using the Cry Room, the narthex and the classroom off the social hall to accommodate everyone.

3.  All eight stained glass windows will be open, along with the side exterior doors in the sanctuary.  You will enter through the exterior double doors where the greeter will check you in before directing you to the ushers.

4.  Restrooms will be available, however, only one occupant at a time.  The Archdiocese requires that the space be sanitized after each use, so please use the wipes located on the counter, to wipe down surfaces you have touched.  Children must be accompanied by an adult.
