- Every other pew will be available for seating but please sit apart from each other. Families may sit together.
- Masks are encouraged as we are still in the throes of the pandemic. No gloves for Communion in the hand.
- Communion will be given by FR. Gould and Fr. Heisler, in the Narthex after Mass. This will be done to avoid crowd movements in the church during the Mass.
- 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.
