If you choose to attend Mass, please:

  • We strongly encourage you to wear a face covering and sit at least 6 feet apart from people not in your household.

  • Enter only from the main entrance in the front of the church and sit by household groups.  Sit 6 feet apart from other households. Ushers are available to assist.
  • During distribution of Holy Communion, only one household at a time should approach the Communion rail.
    • This will help maintain safe distancing and give the ministers time to sanitize their hands between households
  • You may choose to attend Mass outside under the Portico, please bring your own seating. Communion will be distributed in the church entrance  to accommodate.
  • Refrain from congregational singing.
  • Kindly visit outside the church before and after Mass and refrain from congregating in the narthex or church entrance.

  • Hand sanitizer stations are available in the narthex.
