Small Group Meetings
We are hoping to open for small group meetings in September, after Labor Day. HOWEVER, whether we are able to do so will depend on COVID issues and guidelines. Compliance with any regulations from the archdiocese, or state and federal guidelines will be expected. Groups will need to follow through with requirements to sanitize any area they use before leaving the premises.
The old keys will no longer get you inside the buildings. All those who have old keys, please come to the office between August 24th and September 8th to return old keys. New key forms will need to be filled out and signed by those who will have access for small groups and such.
Decree Extending Suspension of Masses
Archbishop Sample issued a new decree extending the suspension of the public celebration of Holy Mass and issuing a corresponding dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday and Holy Day Masses. The Archbishop has made this extension until further notice and with the intention to reinstate the public celebration of the Holy Mass at the soonest date possible, following the recommendations of public health and other civil officials. Cover letter and decree can be found here in ENGLISH, SPANISH and VIETNAMESE.
Archbishop Sample invites you to Mass
