Our plans for this weekend, May 15-16, 2021 will not change due to the new CDC guidelines and state rules relating to COVID-19 protocols. Only those who have already signed up to attend Masses this weekend will be attending. Almost all those attending are Confirmation families. Attendees will be wearing masks and practicing social distancing. There will be no walk-ins allowed for attending St. Mary’s Masses this weekend.
On May 17, 2021, we expect to provide additional information on the COVID-19 protocols to be used at future Masses at St. Mary of the Lake.
PARISH LIFE CENTER/SCHOOL BUILDING
The Commissioner of the MN Department of Health announced that safety protocols for schools (including the wearing of masks) will not change prior to the conclusion of this school year. Because the Parish Life Center houses Frassati Catholic Academy, we will continue to follow the safety plan that requires masks to be worn by all who visit the Parish Life Center/School building. We will follow the school safety plan in the Parish Life Center until June 3, 2021, which will be the first day of summer break at Frassati.
Thanks for your patience as we navigate the quickly changing recommendations made by federal, state and local officials and our archdiocesan leaders. Our first priority is your safety and the safety of our students, staff, volunteers and visitors who come to our church and Parish Life Center/School.
