Return to Public Mass
We are asked to maintain a limit of 25% capacity for mass attendance, therefore, we are going to continue with a reservation system to ensure that everyone is able to find a place at a mass. The link will be updated weekly and found in the Quad Parish bulletin, facebook page, and website. Those without the internet have the option to contact the parish office for reservation assistance. The link for reservations is: https://reopen.church/r/BmqqWjG4
Here are a few of the more detailed pieces, which you can expect to observe:
-Doors will be propped open for contact free entrance into the churches.
-Hand sanitizer available at the entrances of the church.
-Holy Water fonts will remain empty.
– In compliance with the mask mandate, we are asking that you wear a mask while indoors.
If you are not wearing a mask, we will assume that you are exempt as outlined by the mandate.
-The greeting and sign of peace will be omitted.
-Bulletins will be available for distribution at the end of Mass.
-Please continue to use social distancing practices as you enter and exit the churches, as well as when you come forward for communion.
-The facilities will be cleaned & sanitized following services.
NOTE:Renovations are now complete at St Patrick.Their 4 pm Mass will be held in St Patrick Church.
In addition to the things listed in the article above, we would like to let you know that the diocese has asked us to remove all printed materials from the churches. This includes, but is not limited to hymnals and worship aids. Once we are able to return to using printed materials, single use worship aids will be the norm, and it is safe to count on that continuing for quite a while. It is important to note that the dispensation from the Sunday Obligation of the Mass remains during this time. The faithful should use their best judgment as to whether or not to at-tend.Catholics who are not sick or frail due to illness or age are encouraged to return to Mass. Those who are showing symptoms of illness, even if not COVID related, in the spirit of Christian charity, should choose to remain at home.CLICK HERE to make Reservation for Weekend Masses
