Updated Recommendations For Our Community  At This Time
Dear Friends in Christ Our Hope,
I wanted to update you on the latest guidance from the Archdiocese and Public Health concerning the COVID 19 - Novel Coronavirus. It is important for us to make sure that our community is safe, especially our parishioners and Josephinum residents who are most vulnerable from a health perspective. We will continue to welcome all to Mass tomorrow at 8:30 AM, 5:00 PM and 7:00 PM. 

King County Public Health is advising anyone over the age of 60 (healthy or unhealthy) to consider avoiding large gathering spaces. You can read their updated recommendations here.  

This continues with the recommendations that all people with underlying health conditions, those with compromised immune systems and pregnant women to avoid large gatherings of 10 or more people. There is special dispensation granted by our Bishops to those unable to attend Mass and receive communion for such reasons. 

We understand this may be hard for our community. As such, all of our Masses will be available using Facebook LIVE to allow all who want to be part of the Eucharistic celebration to be in Communion virtually.  To view this video, make sure you have liked us on Facebook  here. If you have questions about using this feature, please email us. We will also have a table set up after each Mass to support best communication with our parish community and are happy to answer any questions at that time. 

Please pray for our beautiful community as we continue together on our Lenten journey toward the hope of Easter and the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Peace,

COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS) ARCHDIOCESE SUGGESTED PRECAUTIONS 

  • If you are sick or feel you are getting sick, please stay at home and do not attend Mass 
    • Missing Mass due to illness is not sinful; it is prudent and shows care for your sisters and brothers 
  • People over the age of 60 (healthy or unhealthy), those with underlying health conditions or compromised immune systems and pregnant women should avoid large gatherings
  • Avoid handshaking, bow your greeting instead 
  • During Mass, at the Sign of Peace, simply say, "Peace be with you," instead of offering your hand 
  • During Communion, the Eucharist will only be offered in your hand, rather than on your tongue 
  • There will be no Precious Blood offered from the chalice to the community at this time
  • The holy water font has been drained, so simply bless yourself with the sign of the cross as you enter and exit the Church
