A Frequently Asked Question
Since resuming public worship in May 2020, parishes have taken great care to ensure safety protocols are followed by staff, as well as Mass-goers. With the rise in percentage of the population vaccinated, cases are decreasing and we are starting to see the light at the end of the pandemic tunnel. For these reasons and more, Gov. Walz announced in Executive Order 21:21 that social distancing will no longer be mandated indoors beginning Friday, May 28 – meaning that parishes prepared to do so may open at full capacity at that time. SEAS is prepared and will open for full capacity the weekend of May 29/30. Masks are still required for all ages five and over, and recommended for those ages two and over. Parishes stand ready and eager to welcome back the faithful for in-person worship.

Pray the Chaplet Every Friday at SEAS
Come and pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet in the sanctuary every Friday from 3-3:30 p.m. with Father Matt and others who appreciate this prayer of intercession. It’s a way of opening the floodgates to the Father's mercy so that He can pour out His merciful love upon the world through His Son. We hope to see you Friday! Learn the Chaplet HERE.
