Going Back Home
Effective Saturday, July 10th
ALL MASSES WILL BE
CELEBRATED IN THE CHURCH!
Saturday Vigil: 4:30 pm
Sunday: 7:30 am, 9:00 am,
10:30 am and 12 Noon
“Great news! Next weekend (July 10th and 11th) all the Masses will be back in the Church. We will revert back to the old Mass Schedule and make any adjustments as we move forward. The schedule will be Saturday Vigil at 4:30 pm, Sunday 7:30 am, 9:00 am, 10:30 am, and 12 noon. I am excited to see more parishioners attending Mass in person and parish activities preparing to start up in the Fall. Summerfest preparations are going strong, tell your family and friends about this great event.”
Fr. David Bellittiere
As restrictions are being lifted Fr. David has decided to move all the Masses back into the Church. We will be adopting our old Mass schedule (see above). By doing this we will be able to accommodate the growing number of parishioners who are returning to Mass while offering options for those who might not feel comfortable worshipping in a crowded Church. When planning which Mass you will attend please keep in mind that the 4:30 pm Saturday Vigil Mass and 10:00 am Sunday Mass were the most heavily attended Masses.
COVID – 19 Guideline Updates …..
- Social Distancing: We will be utilizing all the pews in the Church.
- Masks: From the Diocese, “…masks are now optional, but may continue to be worn at the discretion of the individual. Out of pastoral concern, the safety of others should always be considered when making this choice. Ministers of the Eucharist are encouraged to continue to wear masks when distributing Communion for the protection of the vulnerable and those who may not be able to be vaccinated.”
- Live Streaming: We will live stream the 10:30 am and 12 Noon Sunday Masses; these times may change in the future. We will continue to stream Holy Days of Obligation, funerals and other special celebrations.
A Note to our Eucharistic Ministers, Lector, Servers, Ushers and Welcome Back Ministry:
Thank you all so much for your dedication to your various ministries. We all have been through a very challenging time during the pandemic; your commitment to Jesus, the Gospel message and the parish has been the backbone of the re-opening process. Thank you again and may God bless you.
With the change in Mass schedule, the Rectory will send an email note asking which Mass you would like to serve at. If you do not receive that email very soon, please call (674-2374) or email the Rectory at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know your preference.
Ushers, Welcome Back Ministry & Cleaners:
We hope that you will still continue in your roles of welcoming parishioners and guests, offering assistance and direction and cleaning the Church after Mass. While still keeping the same roles, we are combining these ministries into the new “Hospitality Ministry”.
Everyone …If you would like to help out in any of the above ministries, we would love to have you! Please call or email the Rectory and let us know!
