Fall Back to Church!
If you're part of our Parish family, but you haven't been to Mass recently, we are excited to have you come back. It's safe, and we miss you!
Or - if you desire a caring, loving community to share your life with, please join us!
We cordially invite you to join us for the celebration of Mass! As of October 1, 2020, the Mass schedule is as follows:
Guidelines for Attending Mass...
Prior to attending Mass, check your temperature and if you are not feeling well, remain at home.
Plan to arrive no earlier than 30 minutes before Mass begins.
Masks must be worn at all times inside the building and a 6-foot physical distance must be maintained between those not in your family.
Be prepared to follow entrance and exit directions.
Follow instructions given by the ushers for entering, seating, Communion, and exiting.
Guidelines prohibit singing at this time and the exchange of peace will be a simple bow.
For reception of Communion, wait for the ushers to direct you with your mask in place until you approach the Priest or Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion, remove your mask to place Communion in your mouth, and then replace your mask.
Please place all financial offerings in the baskets located at the entrances/exits.
After the final blessing, remain in your seat until the ushers dismiss you and proceed directly to your vehicle without socializing.
