Phase One Mass & Sacrament Schedule

Beginning this Sunday, May 31, we are going to back to the full Weekend Schedule

SATURDAY MASSES: 9AM and 5PM

SUNDAY MASSES:  7AM, 8:30AM, 10:30AM, 12:15 PM, and 5PM (No Confessions prior to Mass until we get further down the road with this pandemic.)

Modifications for the Weekend Schedules: (Vimeo Camera Coverage Continues CLICK HERE)

  1. There will be no music for the Masses.
  2. Every other pew will be available for seating but please sit apart from each other.  Families may sit together. 50% occupancy.
  3. Masks are encouraged as we are still in the throes of the pandemic.  No gloves for Communion in the hand.
  4. Communion will be given by FR. Gould and Fr. Heisler, outside the front doors after Mass.  This will be done to avoid crowd movements in the church during the Mass. 
  5. All parishioners over 60 and/or those who have health concerns will continue to have the dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass in Phase One.
  6. Due to the continued confessional construction program, the weekday Masses will continue to be closed until Monday, June 8th.  (This may be modified in the coming week.)  Please stay tuned.
