We praise and thank God for this opportunity to be together again! This week, we will begin to hold public Masses in the church once again as the Coronavirus shutdown begins to be lifted. We will have our regular Masses on weekdays beginning on Thursday, June 11 with Mass at 9 AM, going forward. On Saturdays, we will still have our regular Mass at 5:15 PM starting this Saturday, June 13.
We will be holding one Mass on Sundays, which will be moved to 10 AM instead of our regular time of 10:45 AM. We will NOT be holding Mass at 8:30 AM.These new times will begin this Sunday, June 14 and extend into the foreseeable future.
There are a few things we would like everybody to keep in mind when entering the church for Mass:
- Masks or face coverings must be worn in the church at all times. Those without face coverings will not be allowed into the church.
- We will have hand sanitizer available for use when entering the church
- Attendance will be limited to 100 people.
- Social distancing must be maintained in the church at all times. Ushers will be seating people as they arrive to ensure proper spacing. Entry will be limited to the main doors of the church. The side doors leading to the parking lots and the rectory will be used for exiting only.
- Communion will be administered at Masses starting on Saturday June 13. This will be done with alterations made to comply with health guidelines from the Diocese and the CDC. Click here for more information regarding the distribution of Holy Communion.
We hope that as a church family, we stay strong together in these trying times, we pray for wisdom for what lies ahead and the Holy Spirit to guide us. We continue to Trust the Lord and His Divine plan.
A quick update on Msgr. Bauhoff: He was admitted to St. Francis Hospital again on Tuesday, June 9, due to anemia causing him to feel lightheaded and shortness of breath. The doctors will run tests in the coming days. Some of you may remember him experiencing a similar issue in 2018. He already reported feeling better after spending some time in the hospital. Please keep him in your prayers.
We are excited to be able to reopen for public Masses, and thank you all for your continued support through this shutdown. We look forward to seeing you this weekend.
