New rules for a changing situation
— Friday, March 13, 2020
Bishop Crosby has written a new letter setting out changed practices for the celebration of the Eucharist due to developments in the COVID19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. On attending Mass this weekend you will find the Baptismal and Holy Water fonts dry per the Bishop’s instructions. Also, we will NOT be distributing Holy Communion on the tongue, rather, only in the hand; further, we will NOT be distributing Holy Communion from the Chalice. We are also asking our ministers of welcome and all parishioners to refrain from physical contact (handshakes etc.) at the entrance to the Church, or at the sign of peace during Mass. Follow the link below for the full text of the Bishop’s letter.
