    • Parishioners are encouraged to wear masks when entering the church.   Hand sanitizer will be available at the entrance of the church and should be utilized.  The ushers will be required to wear masks.  The mask will be removed when receiving Communion.
    • Our parishes will be practicing social distancing protocols; therefore, will be allowing only 50% of the mandated fire code seating capacity  people.  The ushers will be making sure our churches do not exceed these attendance limitations and the parishioners are following social distancing protocols.  Parishioners will be seated in every other pew on both sides of the church with six feet distancing protocols.  Families in the same household can be seated together.
    • The pews will be sanitized after each Mass as well as the bathrooms.
    • Missalettes and hymnals will be removed and will not be utilized during the Mass and other celebrations.
    • Liturgical ministers will be limited in number—no altar servers and one lector.
    • Offertory collection—parishioners should not touch the basket when placing the envelope or cash in the basket.
    • The offertory procession will be discontinued at this time.  Usher will be taking the offertory collection basket to the front of the altar.

    • The distribution of Communion will be only under one species and should be only received in the hand.  The priest and Eucharistic minister will wear masks during distribution. The parishioner should practice the safe distance protocol (6 feet) when standing in line for communion.  Ushers will assist with queuing up for Communion.
    • Parishioners should not gather too closely when entering or leaving the church.  After the conclusion of Mass, everyone should exit the church and not gather in the foyer. 
    • Parish meetings and gatherings of a smaller size on parish grounds may be resumed, while utilizing established protocols for social distancing and other safety measures.

    These guidelines and protocols are for the health and safety of our parishioners during this time. We need to “patiently bear with” some of the above current changes and restrictions.The above procedures were prepared by the Bishop’s office; every parishioner should be familiar with them. Be respectful of your fellow parishioner.
