COVID-19 STATUS

Last updated June 3, 2020
 
  • For this weekend (June 6-7), we are re-opened for Mass!The Saturday 5 PM and Sunday 9 AM Masses will be held in the Church and live-streamed. The Sunday 11:15 AM Mass will be held in Corrigan Hall (no live-stream available from the Hall but a recorded Mass will be re-broadcast at 11:15 AM). The reason for the different location is to allow for sanitizing the areas before they are used again.
 
  • We are utilizing the ticketing system Eventbrite as a means to comply with building capacity limits and to avoid having to turn away people seeking to attend Mass.  Please sign up for a Mass and time with the number in your group. You will be asked by an usher to show your ticket by either bringing a print out confirmation or showing the usher your ticket on your mobile device.
 
  • Enter through the front doors of the Church for the 5 PM & 9 AM Mass and through the Corrigan Hall outer doors for the 11:15 AM Mass.  Follow the ushers instruction for exiting.  The doors closest to the parish office will be locked before, during, and after all Masses. 
 
  • Masks must be worn at all times. Please read and comply with all signs and observe floor markings and physical distancing in the building. Ushers will assist you and to ensure the guidelines are followed.  For a list of safety and physical distance requirements while visiting the parish CLICK HERE. People are asked to take their temperature before leaving for Mass. If you are experiencing any symptoms, including fever, cough, and/or shortness of breath, do not come to the parish until you are healthy.
 
  • Archbishop Lori extended his dispensation of the faithful from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass through the entirety of Phase II.  Parishioners who are still uncomfortable gathering for Mass, whether due to age, medical conditions, or just general uneasiness should refrain from coming to the parish. We will continue to live-stream the Mass to ensure these faithful may maintain a spiritual connection with their local church. Please refer to the Live-Stream page for schedule.  
 
  • Under Phase II, we will resume Weekday Masses the week of June 15, 2020.
 
  •  The Sacrament of Reconciliation is available on Saturdays from 3:30-4:30 PM in the Pastoral Suite.
    Enter/Exit through Parish Office Doors only.
