PRAYER TO THE HOLY SPIRIT

Breathe in me O Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may all be holy.
Act in me O Holy Spirit, that my work, too, may be holy.
Draw my heart O Holy Spirit, that I love but what is holy.
Strengthen me O Holy Spirit, to defend all that is holy.
Guard me, then, O Holy Spirit, that I always may be holy. Amen
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to present challenges as our churches have been opened to the public. The Archdiocese of Milwaukee has sent us their expectations and precautions for people attending Mass. Please read and adhere to their recommendations.

Archbishop Listecki has extended the dispensation from the Sunday Mass obligation through September 6, 2020

  • Attendance is limited to no more than 25% of the church occupancy permit. To maximize safety, entry to the church will be denied once that limit has been reached. Standing in available spaces will not be permitted.
  • Archbishop Listecki continues the dispensation from the Sunday obligation for those who are vulnerable or not comfortable returning. Live-stream and radio broadcasts of Mass will continue for those who stay home.
  • All those defined by the health department as more vulnerable (i.e., 60+ years of age, those with compromised immune systems, those with underlying health conditions, those who are especially anxious about being in a large group, etc.) are encouraged to stay home.
  •  Anyone with fever or flu-like symptoms is asked to stay at home.
  • To increase safety, we encourage you to wear a mask and suggest that you bring hand sanitizer if possible. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided for you by the parish.
  • Only one entrance to the church will be open. Church doors will be unlocked a half-hour before each scheduled Mass.
  • Hand sanitizer is to be used before the distribution of Communion.
  • The Precious Blood will not be distributed.
  •  Social-distancing of a minimum of six feet between people not living in the same household must be followed. Please be respectful of the space of others.
  • Please remain in your places except to use the restroom.
