Covid-19 Update: Mask Requirement at Public Masses
ALL MASSES LIVESTREAMED
Please take care of yourselves, and be safe! We care about you! As per the Archbishop's directives, the dispensation of the Sunday obligation will continue for the foreseeable future. Because we care about both your physical and spiritual health, we are livestreaming all daily and weekend Masses going forward. Click the Streamspot picture to the right or see the "Watch Mass Live" link below to view Mass live. You can also watch later in the day by clicking on the "Archives" link
- The church is open for daily Mass Monday thru Friday. (9:00 AM M, W, Th, F; 6PM T). If you wish to use the church for personal prayer while it's closed, please come to the Parish Office, and we'll be happy to let you in!
Continue to check our website and social media for any adaptations we make as we gauge the effectiveness of the changes we've made.
May God, the Great Healer, be with us all, and may the Holy Spirit bless all us with good health and sustain us in faith, hope and love during this time of uncertainty.
Green means Go! We've marked off the pews to create social distancing at public Masses. Please sit in pews with the green tape to your back, and make sure to sit 6ft from anyone who does not live in your household. Thanks!
To help you decide whether or not you're ready to return to public Masses, we're publishing the attendance at each weekend Mass. Church capacity is normally 800, but with social distancing, we are closer to 200, including the simulcast in the Witzman Center.
Attendance for the Weekend of September 19/20: 5:00PM - 161, 8:30AM - 143, 11:00AM - 188
