Discerning and Preparing For Your Return to Mass

With the Archbishop’s announcement that his dispensation of the Sunday Obligation will expire on September 14th, you may be seeking information and guidance to prepare for or discern your readiness to return.  To that end, we’ve put together this page.  We hope that the material here will be helpful to you and of course, please reach out to our pastoral staff if we can be of additional assistance.

 
  • The worship aid for this weekend’s liturgies is available here. Please download and print copies for your household as needed, whether for in-person worship or for participation at home; Plan to arrive early.

  • A number of our necessary adaptations will add time to your entry to the facilities, so arriving early will help immensely.  The video above details these adaptations – please take a few moments to view it.

  • Remember to bring your own mask and hand sanitizer for your own safety and the safety of others. We will have extra on hand.

  • We are limited in the number of people who can be present in the Church. For this reason, we will have ample overflow spaces where the liturgy can be viewed and distribution of the Eucharist will take place. Please follow the guidance of our ushers and hospitality ministers who are volunteering their efforts to help make for a safe experience for all.

  • Offertory baskets will not be passed during the liturgy but will be present in the walkways as you enter. We are suspending the use of the “E-giving” card for the time your safety at this time, but deeply appreciate the many households who continue to support the mission and ministries of our parish family in this way.  

  • Bulletins are available at the exits from our ushers, and we continue to publish our bulletin online here.

  • As noted in the video, we will be exiting the church directly into the parking lot through the dark brown doors at the front Northeast wall of church. This will allow for sanitizing to begin and for the orderly entrance of attendees for the next Mass. 

  • Please note that we will need time to clean and sanitize pews between Masses. Thank you for your patience and flexibility!

The 5:00 p.m. Mass on Saturday is being livestreamed (and is then be archived for later viewing). You can access the livestream on our Facebook Page and Website or you can subscribe to our video offerings, including Mass on our Vimeo Page
