Outdoor Mass this Sunday
Limited, Public Mass to Begin
We are pleased to announce that St. Vincent de Paul Parish will celebrate outdoor Masses on Sunday, June 7
at 10:30 AM and 5:00 PM. Mass attendance is limited to 100 people, in accord with state and local directives. Attendance will be by reservation only. Reservations may be made on line at
Starting next week one may also call the parish office Mondays or Tuesdays between 10:00 AM and 12 noon. One may not attend Mass without a confirmed reservation.
During this extraordinary time, a general dispensation from the obligation to participate in Mass continues for the faithful. PLEASE remember, we are doing everything in our control to provide a safe environment for Mass, but ultimately, anyone attending Mass does so at his or her own risk. Vulnerable, at-risk and otherwise concerned persons should remain home. We will be live streaming the 10:30 AM Mass for those who are unable to attend in person.
Each person attending Mass should do a self-screening for COVID-19. In order to successfully pass screening, a person must be able to answer “No” to each of these six questions. A “Yes” to even one question is a failed screening, and you may not attend Mass in person.
