LETTER ON RESUMING PUBLIC MASS Dear Parishioners, To protect the health and safety of all, we need to follow Diocesan guidelines and the Pierce County Public Health recommendations. A volunteer team has received Diocesan training. . The ushers will guide, advice and accompany parishioners to adhere to safety measures. We are putting in place a secure attendance system to maintain compliance for the approved number of attendees for each Mass. Each Mass attendance will be limited to 25% occupancy.
Kindly take note of the following: · Holy Communion will be received only in the hand at this time. · Plan to arrive early (at least 15 minutes prior to the start of Mass). · We have been advised that singing is dangerous and not allowed at this time. · There will be designated entrances and exists. At the end of Mass remain in your pews for the ushers to direct you. Use the hand sanitizer provided at the door. · Wearing face mask is mandatory. Bring your own. Ushers will provide one for those who may not have. · We are advised to maintain six to 8-foot distance from all who are not from the same household. · We need to restrain from congregating before or after Mass any place on Church property. · Parishioners are encouraged to attend Mass at their home parish only.
If you are experiencing a fever or any flu-like symptoms, you are advised to stay at home. As highlighted in the Bishop's letter of May 14, 2020: the obligation to attend Mass on Sunday's remain dispensed until further notice. Those over 65 and particularly those with underlying health conditions are advised to stay at home. They may continue with online streaming of Holy Mass.
