Please click here to read the guidelines which we are observing for Mass and/or see the notes below. Sign-up in advance is no longer required for any Mass.
Saturday Vigil: 4:30 pm
Sunday: 9:00 am (Livestreamed)
Sunday: 11:00 am
- Section reserved for those who prefer to mask and socially distance: We will be keeping Section 1, immediately adjacent to the statue of St. Joseph, as the section reserved for those who prefer to wear masks and socially distance. We will continue to monitor the use of that section and possibly change it to Section 6 by the statue of the Blessed Mother in the future. The remainder of the main Worship Space is general seating with no restrictions. Singing is allowed, to the extent that you feel comfortable.
- Communion under both species: Beginning Easter Sunday, 2022, both the Sacred Body and Precious Blood of Christ are available for Communion at the Sunday Masses.
- The 9:00 am Mass is livestreamed via our YouTube channel. Your attendance at this Mass constitutes your agreement to be included in the livestream.
- A kneeler is available at Fr. Ed’s Communion station (left side of the center aisle as you face the Altar) for those who wish to kneel to receive Communion but have difficulty kneeling.
Please note: Kneeling to receive Communion is allowed at any Communion station. The kneeler is simply to assist those who struggle to kneel.
- If you are bringing Communion to the sick or homebound, please bring a pyx and contact a deacon immediately after Mass.
- Incense is used to enhance the solemnity of some liturgies. For a list of those liturgies, please click here for the Incense Use Calendar.
