Here are some other things to keep in mind:
Mass attendance is Optional, not Obligatory:
The dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days remains in effect until further notice. Those who are not well must remain at home and those who believe they are at risk of infection should exercise prudence.
--vulnerable persons/weakened immunity should not attend
Live stream of Sunday Mass will now be at 10:30am
Safe-Distancing, Attendance Limits, and Other Precautions:
--there will be marked areas for individuals & family members at 6-ft intervals. Family members may sit together in a separate area but must maintain a 6-ft separation from the next family.
--we are limited to a total number of attendees of 75 per Mass.
--seating areas will be marked appropriately
--See pix at bottom of page for church floor/seat markings
--face masks are encouraged, but not required.
--The Sign of Peace is omitted
--Communion in the hand recommended; on the tongue is permitted
--Communicants will process down the middle aisle or side perimeter (wall) aisles (beginning from the rear) and return to the pews via the wing aisles. This is a slight change from regular practice.
--The Precious Blood is not distributed
--There are two postures: sitting or standing; no kneeling
--There are no missalettes or weekly bulletins available.
--The choir will provide limited music; there is no congregational singing (but you can hum along)
--The collection offering is placed in the Gathering Space only.
--Please follow the direction of our Hospitality ministers in all situations.
--Restroom use is discouraged, but available.
