sownsoilLast weekend we opened for Saturday and Sunday Masses, and all went very smoothly. Many thanks to everyone who used the Mass registration links and who provided their proof of registration upon arriving for Mass. We were 100% compliant! We will continue to use the main entrance to welcome parishioners. If you need access to the side ramp, please have someone in your party let the greeter know, and the side door will be opened for you. Leaving the church using both doors is perfectly fine. Use of masks and proper social distancing of six feet apart—both while seated and while walking within church—are all standard practice. The church will be cleaned after each Mass (during the week and on weekends).

REMINDER: Masses on Saturday at 4:00 p.m. and Sunday at 9:30 a.m. will require pre-registration using a link on this website or on our Facebook page. Registration is needed to stay within our maximum attendance of 44 parishioners. Once you register, an email confirmation will be sent to you. This confirmation should either be printed or shown via your phone to the greeter at the main entrance who is responsible for keeping the attendance to 44 and communicating the use of masks and social distancing. For those not attending Mass in person, Father Sas will continue offering online Mass accessible on our parish website beginning on Saturday at 4:00 p.m.  For this weekend, Sunday, July 12, the 15th Sunday in Ordinary Time, we thank Gil Thompson and Nancy Aniolek for recording, Will Shoen for reading, and Kathleen Filosa, Carolyn Henderson, and Janice Reska for providing music.
