Letter From Fr. Jeff & Fr. Brian

May 26, 2020

Dear Parishioners,

We are going to be celebrating Mass with a limited number of people beginning May 30 & 31, the Feast of Pentecost.  We want to keep everyone safe as we go through the COVID 19 pandemic.  You can come if you feel safe about coming to Mass.  If you do not feel safe coming to Mass Bishop LeVoir has dispensed everyone of the obligation to come to Mass during this time.  If you wish to participate in Mass, there are some things to keep in mind.

Those over age 65 are strongly encouraged not to attend worship services. Since those over 65 are more susceptible to contracting the coronavirus, this would be for their own safety as well as the safety of those gathered. In addition, anyone showing any symptoms of sickness, or anyone who has a household member who is sick or showing symptoms of sickness should not attend; this includes priests or other ministers who are sick or showing signs of sickness.  Please take your temperature at home before deciding to come to church.

We will have seating for 1/4 of the church capacity.  Please sit in the pews that are not marked as closed.  Families who live in the same household can sit together.  If you are by yourself, please keep safe distancing of six feet between yourself and others.  You might choose to attend a daily Mass as your weekly celebration because of limited seating at church on the weekend. 

For your safety and for the safety of those around you, please bring a mask from home to wear at church.  Wash your hands.  We also have hand sanitizer available.

Please use your bathroom at home before you come to church.  Restrooms will be open at church, but the fewer people using them the safer everyone will be. 

Mass will be simplified during this time.  There will be minimal singing.  We will not exchange the sign of peace.  We will only have the Body of Christ for communion.  We ask that you keep six feet between you and the people around you as you come up for communion. 

There will not be a collection or people bringing up the gifts.  There will be a basket in the back of church to put your offering.

For those who do not think it is safe to come into church at this time, we invite you to live stream the 8:00 am Mass on Facebook.  We will bring communion to you in your vehicle at St. Philip’s parking lot from 9:00—9:10 am.

Our weekend and weekday Mass schedule is on the other side of this letter.

As always, wash your hands often, use safe social distancing, and continue to be safe.

Fr. Jeff and Fr. Brian
