  • Masks are still required at the 9 AM Mass, which traditionally is our Family Mass. We want everyone to be able to worship safely, including families with young children who are not yet eligible to be vaccinated.
  • At our other Masses, we recommend you wear a mask and continue to use appropriate caution to prevent the spread of germs.
  • We implore you to wear a mask when receiving communion and receive it in your hands. We have older priests and we want to keep them and all of us safe.
