We will begin to have one public liturgy on Sunday, June 14 @ 10:00am. With social distancing and the percentage of 25%, we will be limited to 60 people, including the priest, deacon(s), cantor and accompaniment, and camera operator. The Mass will be live streamed also. Using the link below, you MUST register to come. To remind you:
1. If you are in a vulnerable population, please stay home the next few weekends. The Bishop has dispensed us from the Sunday obligation for the time being. 2. Please come at least 20 minutes early to check in. You must wear a mask, answer the health survey, and a log will be kept with your name and phone number. 3. No congregating in the parking lot before or after Mass. If the meeting space outside church appears crowded when you arrive, please maintain social distance and wait. Follow the greeter’s directions. 4. Please follow the directions of the usher/greeter who guide you to your seat…we will not have open seating to begin with. SOCIAL DISTANCING IS REQUIRED. 5. Communion will be at the end of Mass and you will exit at that point; please follow the directions of the usher/greeter. 6. We will strive to be as fair as can in who attends. We will have 2 Sunday Masses eventually and I will begin to offer daily Mass publically in a few weeks @ 8:30 on Wednesday and Friday. Thank you for your patience at this anxious time. 7. I do realize that people do not use social media. A letter with this information will be going out to all the parish in the next week. Remember we had not planned on being able to do this so quickly.
THE LINK TO REGISTER IS: https://forms.gle/xMrpiWPfpUk9GX6k8 or call the parish office @ 1-518-449-2232 The link will open on Tuesday after 9 and end on Thursday evening at 6.
FOR THOSE WHO ARE IN A VULNERABLE POPULATION OR ARE NOT ABLE TO BE THERE THIS WEEKEND: Please watch the live streamed Mass @10:00am. Holy Communion will then be distributed from 11:45 – 12:30 in the parking lot. Please drive in, follow the cones or directions, REMAIN in your cars receive Holy Communion and then leave. The deacons and I will have masks on and will use hand sanitizer between each car.
We are still in need of more volunteers to greet/usher. It is my hope that we can create a team for each weekend of the month for each Mass for as long as we need to
WE ARE ON OUR WAY. AGAIN REMEMBER ALL THIS IS BEING DONE TO PROTECT YOU (AND ME). REMEMBER CHRISTIAN CHARITY AND PATIENCE WITH THE PROCESS.
