If you wish to attend Mass and receive the Eucharist on the weekend, but feel you won’t be able to socially distance yourself properly, we have provided overflow seating in our Parish Center for our weekend Masses. There is a TV in the room that runs our live streaming.

We certainly ask anyone who is sick/not feeling well that you not come to church in an effort to avoid the possibility of making others sick. You will enter through the North door of church or the Parish Center doors (the other doors will remain locked). There is hand sanitizer available when you enter and everyone is asked to use it upon entering. We ask that everyone be very conscious of social distancing—please stay at least 6 feet apart when in church. Let each of us remember this time is set aside for private prayer and to be respectful of each other, we ask that there be no socializing in church—just social distancing.
