Return of Processions

Beginning on May 3, 2021, the entrance, Eucharistic, and recessional processions during the Mass will be reinstated at all liturgies except the Friday Noon Mass which will continue with high-risk protocols.

What does this mean?

  1. Servers will be returning to ministry for each Sunday liturgy. Server meeting dates and times to learn Covid protocols.

SSPP: May 4th – 7:00pm

OLSH: May 6th – 7:00pm

  1. For the reception of the Eucharist, we will process forward. Please try to maintain the required 6 feet social distance requirement. Eucharistic ministers will be spaced appropriately. Masks must be worn. Please receive the Eucharist in the palm of your non-dominant hand, pick it up with your fingers, then pull mask up or down with the opposite hand, then consume.
  2. Those who are unable to process forward for communion are asked to sit close to the front, in the front pew, or in the cross section. A minister will come to you.

Note: Friday Noon Mass will maintain all safety standards currently in place.

Guidelines, Restrictions and Safety for attending Mass in person can be found HERE
