Mass Guidelines per Diocesan Directives

The dispensation from the Sunday Mass obligation will continue through September 6, 2020. We plan to continue to live stream Mass even after this date for those who cannot attend.

Beginning Sunday, May 31st, attendance may not exceed 25% seating capacity for our Parish. Parishioners will be welcomed on a first come first served basis until we reach capacity.

Considerations and General Directions:

  • If you have a fever or have been ill in the last 48 hours,  please do not attend Mass.
  • Please wash your hands thoroughly or use hand sanitizer before attending Mass. Also, it is asked that you bring hand sanitizer to use before receiving Communion.
  • Masks/face coverings will be required. Please bring your own mask or face coveringMasks must stay on for the entire time during Mass except for when you receive Communion. Children 6 and under will not be required to wear a mask during Mass.
  • RESTROOMS will not be available for use. We are not able to disinfect them after each use so they will, unfortunately, remain locked for the present time.
  • There will be no congregational singing and responses should be vocalized in a “soft voice”.
  • There will be special directions for receiving Communion and the Priest will explain further at the time of the liturgy.
  • Entrance for Mass will only be available through the main office door. After Mass, you may exit through that door or the Cross Street main doors which will be propped open by our usher team.  Please remember to maintain a 6 foot distance from other parishioners when entering or exiting the church.
  • We will use a “red, white, and blue” seating system inside the church to maintain physical distancing for our parishioners. We will let you know which "color" we are using for seating for specific Masses. 

We highly encourage you to bring either Lysol Wipes or a disinfectant spray to wipe down your pew after Mass.  Please be aware that these guidelines are subject to change as we receive information from the Diocese of Lansing.
