New Directives Regarding the Lifting COVID-19 Restrictions
Beginning on Friday, May 28th, the faithful participating in Mass, who are vaccinated against COVID-19, are no longer required to wear masks. Those who are not yet vaccinated are encouraged to wear masks according to the CDC guidelines. In addition, all social distancing requirements are lifted for celebrations that take place within the parish churches.
Beginning on Friday, June 4th, parishes may return to full capacity for seating.
The invitation to share the Sign of Peace is likewise restored-it is not necessary to shake hands as there are other ways to offer the Sign of Peace but some may choose to do so with close relatives.
