Mass and Reconciliation
The obligation to attend Sunday and Holy Day Mass is restored in our Diocese. There will always be cases where individuals are excused or dispensed for serious reasons These reasons would include, but are not limited to, personal illness, known or suspected exposure to COVID-19, or if you are a caretaker of a member of the vulnerable population and your participation in Mass would expose him or her to a significant risk of contracting COVID-19. If you are unsure of your situation, please consult with Fr. Andrew who can assist you in your discernment.
We’ve returned to a Communion line. If you wish to receive on the tongue, please be in Fr. Andrew’s line (he sanitizes after each). Social distancing is still expected to be practiced to the extent possible. Extra seating remains in the social hall for those who prefer to sit there.
Those who have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 10 days, or have been exposed to the virus (considered 15 minutes within 6 feet of known or suspected COVID-19 case), or shown symptoms at any time in the previous 10 days are to stay home.

More elements of our tradition are included, for example at certain times the priest faces the same way as the people, incense, inclusion of some Latin. A potluck meal, catechesis, and/or fellowship will follow. Please contact Fr. Andrew if you plan to attend the meal let him know what you might be able to bring.
