Masses will again be held at 4:00pm on Saturday, and 8:00am, 10:00am, and 12:00pm on Sunday this week. To ensure everyone's safety, there will be a limited number of spaces available. A signup email will be sent out on Tuesday via Flocknote. Unfortunately, you will not be able to attend without registering in advance to allow for the necessary social distancing. In an effort to allow more parishioners to attend Mass while still allowing for safe social distancing, we will be simulcasting the mass to the Social Hall as needed. The Mass will be broadcast to the new high definition projector and sound system. The signup for the simulcast will be available as the church fills up.
- We will continue to send Mass to you electronically so please do not put yourself at risk. Archbishop Lori has suspended the obligation to attend Mass and it is extremely important that you do not put yourself or others at risk. If not feeling well, please stay at home and pray with us electronically.
- Everyone must wear a mask, which covers the nose and mouth, throughout the entire Mass, except when receiving communion.
- Bathrooms are not available
- Please keep the social distancing requirement of 6 feet away from the closest person; however members of the same household may sit together.
- Holy Communion will be distributed on the hand; please keep 6 feet away from the person in front of you.
On Saturday, drive-through Confessions will be heard from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm. Enter the St Louis parking lot from the Ten Oaks Road entrance and leave by Route 108. *Confessions may be canceled or postponed due to bad weather.
