Confessions have resumed in the lower sacristy (behind the altar on the Marian side) fro 2:30-3:30pm Saturdays.

If you do join us in person, things will be a little different:

1.  You must wear a mask the entire time you are in the church.
2.  Communion will be distributed in the hand only. Please hold your hand flat and take care not to touch the person giving you communion. Please keep your mask on until AFTER you have received Communion in your hand, then step to the side, lower your mask, and consume the host so that you are not face to face with the priest without a mask.
3.  Please always maintain a social distance of 6 feet between others (except those in your household). 
4.  The congregation is asked not to participate in the singing of hymns as this may be more likely to cause the spread of COVID-19.
5.  As hard as it may be, please no socializing. I know we will all be so happy to see each other, but please do not gather in the narthex or at any entrances. Please do not gather with others in the church. Smile and wave from a distance

The Catholic bishops of the United States are pleased to offer once again to the Catholic faithful Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship, our teaching document on the political responsibility of Catholics. This statement represents our guidance for Catholics in the exercise of their rights and duties as participants in our democracy. We urge our pastors, lay and religious faithful, and all people of good will to use this statement to help form their consciences; to teach those entrusted to their care; to contribute to civil and respectful public dialogue; and to shape political choices in the coming election in light of Catholic teaching.
