If you have not been to our parish during the pandemic, we look forward to welcoming you back to church!

Here are our WorshipSafe protocols to maintain a safe church environment:

- All capacity limits, including physical distancing requirements, are removed.

- Indoor mask use is optional but highly recommended.

- Hand sanitizer will continue to be provided upon entry.

- You will no longer need to write your contact information (for contact tracing) before entering the church.

- Please respect the wish of those who would like to continue wearing masks and maintaining physical distancing.

- Confessions are heard in the confessional.  Masks are highly recommended during the entire confession.


- Altar servers, Lectors, Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion will still be kept at a minimum.  Please do not enter the sacristy unless you have been asked to assist during Mass.

- When receiving Communion, observe physical distancing by following the red lines on the floor.

- Follow the orderly flow of communion distribution, i.e., where parishioners seated in different sections should line up to receive Communion.

- Please step on the red box in front of the priest or minister, extend your hands to receive Communion, step to the side at the red arrow [remove your mask if you are wearing one], put the Eucharist in your mouth [put your mask back on], and walk back to your seat.

- While Holy Communion will continue to be given on the hand, kindly wait at the end of the Communion line if you wish to receive Holy Communion on the tongue.
