Directives for Masses and Holy Communion
What a joyous moment, to be able to celebrate together in Mass. This brings our people together with guidelines. Please note that we are doing what is required by the CDC as well as the Diocese to bring our faithful back to worship within a safe and healthy environment.
NOTE: The obligation to attend Mass is still rescinded until April 11, 2021. However April 11, 2021 brings an opportunity for even more of the faithful to return.
Please see the Bishops Decree for more information.
