Mass During the Pandemic

Mass has resumed with the following changes:

  • Social distancing will be observed. 

  • Masks will be provided and used during Mass.

  • At communion time, approach with social distance of six feet from the person in front of you and with your mask still in place, bow reverently, extend your hand, receive the host in your hand “throne”, lower your mask, consume the host, and return to your pew. We are not using the words “Body of Christ….or Amen” due to close proximity.

  • You can attend in the O'Bryan Center (parish hall) where the Mass will be televised or you can park your car in the parish parking lot. Communion will be brought to you in the O’Bryan Center or in your parked car at communion time.
