Bishop Warfel Mandates Masks at Mass

Mask or face covering use required for ages five and older. Following Governor Bullock’s order regarding wearing masks, Bishop Warfel issued the following statement, Thursday, 7/16:  All parishioners attending Mass are to wear facial masks and are only to remove them when receiving Holy Communion. Exceptions to this rule are children under the age of two should not  wear a face mask; those providing communication to the hearing impaired, those serving as readers and cantors or other speaking roles at Mass, and priests who preside at sacramental services, especially the Mass. Those distributing Holy Communion should wear masks. These exceptions indicate that the requirement for six feet of separation remains in force.

Need Volunteers for Cleaning Church between Masses

Adding a second Mass back on Sunday will require two things: FIRST, we need time to clean without the use of harsh chemicals, so 90 minutes in between the services is needed, and SECOND many volunteers are needed after the earlier Mass to sanitize for 10-15 minutes on a rotating schedule so that the later Mass is possible. If you want to see the return of a second Mass on Sunday, consider volunteering to help with the cleaning/sanitizing after the proposed 8:30am Mass on Sunday; please contact Nick by email or phone, 656-2522, in the parish office to sign up.”

Nursery Closed

Due to COVID-19 we are keeping the Parish Nursery closed.  We hope to open it as soon as is deemed safe to do so.  We apologize for any inconvenience, but trust you understand.  We continue to pray for all in this pandemic. God bless you all!
