Monday, September 14

Effective immediately, reservations are no longer needed for Sunday Masses. The majority of our parishioners were opting out of reservations therefore, to streamline seating, everyone will be seated on a first-come, first-served basis. We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we continue to evaluate the best options to bring as many back to Mass as possible and as safely as possible.

We are pleased to announce that our 7:30 am daily Mass will be back soon! Beginning the week of September 14, we will celebrate 7:30 am Mass on Mondays and Fridays. It will also be live-streamed. Our Noon daily Mass will continue Tues – Thurs. No reservations are needed.

We are also happy to announce that we will celebrate a weekly Sunday Outdoor Mass at 11:30 am –  beginning later in September! Check back soon for all the details.

Archbishop Gregory J. Hartmayer, OFM Conv. has announced that the suspension of the obligation to attend Sunday Mass has been extended until Monday, September 28, and the suspension will be reviewed again at the end of September.

The Archbishop encourages those who are healthy and are not burdened with the fear of being exposed to the virus to begin returning to Mass and receive the grace of the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist.

The Archbishop stated:
“Watching the celebration of the Mass on the computer or TV cannot become a substitute for receiving the sacraments.  When ill or in a vulnerable category for being infected or infecting others, the sick person should always remain at home.  This pandemic should not make us lazy regarding our spiritual life.  Our children are back in school and many people have returned to work outside the home.  We still need to be extremely cautious and practice proper protocol.  I suspect more of us can return to Sunday or weekday Mass than are currently attending. I am grateful to all our priests and lay faithful for making it possible and safe to attend Mass.  I appreciate the patience of our people during this unprecedented time.  Please continue to be safe.
