Updated COVID-19 Protocol

Due to the COVID-19 cases in our area, we are exercising extra caution to keep our parishioners and staff safe, especially those who cannot be vaccinated.  Until further notice, masks are required whenever you are in a church building, including when attending Mass.  This applies to everyone old enough to safely wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status.  We are not at this time implementing any additional registration, social distancing, nor extra sanitizing procedures.

One half of the church seating will continue to be “open seating” with all rows open.  The other half will be blocked off at every other row, for those more comfortable with social distancing.  When you enter a pew row, please move to the furthest open seating area, so that others can fill in the row behind you.
