Dear Parishoners,

      On behalf of Fr. Mike we continue to  welcome you back to the church. We wish to remind all parishioners of the diocesan COVID-19 protocols. We have a maximum capacity of 44 individuals per ‘Community Mass Group’ and social distancing.
      Mass is celebrated in the parish hall. Ushers and Greeters are on hand to open the hall doors 15 minutes prior to the start of your weekend Mass time. Upon your arrival the Usher / Greeters will ask for your name, and note your attendance on the roster. Only those whose names appearing on the Community Mass Group Attendance Roster will be permitted entry; this will allow for contact tracing within the ‘Community Mass Group’ bubble. No parishioner will be             
         Under normal circumstances the joy of your heavenly voices is appreciated. However, due to the COVID 19 virus, we ask you to refrain from singing – preventing the spread of droplets. There will be a cantor and organist / keyboardist providing music for the Mass celebration.              We kindly ask that you observe the required social distancing 2 meter rule. The timing of Holy Communion is at the end of Mass, leaving the hall, through office doors, thus providing for an orderly and safe exit.
        Following your departure, the Usher / Greeters will sanitize, disinfect the hall and complete the ‘Church Cleaning Log’ in preparation for the next ‘Community Mass Group’. Our janitors will be cleaning and sanitizing / disinfecting all areas on a routine basis.
 
Thank you for your on-going understanding and patience. If you should have any questions, please feel free to contact the parish office.
 
God bless.
Father Mike
