Important Update on Covid-19

September 10th, 2021

As we continue in Step 3 of the Provincial Opening program we remind everyone that while at church masks must be worn along with social distancing.  Hand sanitation is advised and social gatherings outside of Mass require distancing for the safety of all.  Liturgically there is still no congregational singing and Communion must be received in the hand.  Thank you for your observance of these protocols for your safety and for others.  Everyone is encouraged to be vaccinated so we can together overcome this pandemic. Vaccination is the best and safest way to work together as Pope Francis has recommended.

Thank You.
