We are happy to announce that not only has the Phase II re-opening allowed us to admit up to 25%* of our church capacity to mass, but that
we may also have the distribution of Holy Communion to the faithful
Please note these new allowances come with the following additional protocols that should be noted and adhered to:
1. For now,
only the priests
will distribute Communion
Communion will be distributed
at the end of mass
Those who wish to receive should remain in their pews when mass has ended and await the priest's invitation.
3. As you exit your pew to receive Communion, please be mindful of social distancing guidelines and leave at least 6 feet of space between you and the person in front of you.
The floor will be marked with tape indicating the 6 feet of separation.
Please also look to our ushers for further guidance.
4. It is highly recommended for the safety of all that
received in the hand
, but, if you would like to receive on the tongue, please go to the end of the Communion line.
Your face mask must remain with you
, but should be removed
once you get to the pries
t for you to consume the host. As soon as you have consumed the host, please re-don your mask.
6. Communicants planning to receive in the hand
may not wear gloves
when approaching Communion.
We will have Confessions on Saturday from 12-1pm
for anyone who needs to approach that sacrament in anticipation of receiving Eucharist
(Confessions will now regularly be held on Saturdays)
