About this Event

Please read the Registration and Safety Protocols that will allow us to gather together more safely.

Registering for Mass Participation:

Select the Select a Date link in red on the right side of the Event Brite page.

Please select the Mass/es that you plan to attend and input your registration information. Please list the number of people in your party who live together and will be able to sit together in a pew.

You will receive an email with your ticket confirmation. Print the ticket to bring with you to Mass.

Please sign up for the wait-list if you would like to attend and the Mass is full. This will help us with future Mass planning to know how many parishioners would like to attend. We may also be able to extend additional spots from the waiting list depending on the configuration of family groups.

Before Mass:

Please wash hands before leaving home.

Feel free to bring a travel-size container of hand sanitizer or hand wipes. Please sanitize your hands as you enter the church.

Everyone is required to bring and wear a mask.

Maintain social distancing protocols of 6-ft separation entering, sitting, and exiting the church.

Entrance for Mass will be at the front doors facing Cochituate Road and the side ramp entrance will be only for those who cannot use stairs.

A basket will be available for the offertory collection at each entrance.

Seating is limited to insure proper distancing (6-ft apart in all directions). Families and those living in the same household can sit together.

Some rows will be blocked off to maintain the required 6-ft distancing.

Seating will proceed by filling the available pews from the altar front to the back of the church.

Ushers will be present to assist with the seating process.

All seating begins 6-ft in from the end of each row to allow for distancing during Communion.

During Mass

Pray along with the Mass.

A bow or gesture replaces a handshake or other physical signs of peace/greeting during the liturgy.

All hymnals have been removed and there will be no congregational singing nor will a choir or cantor be allowed until further notice.

At Communion time, parishioners are asked to come to communion by the center aisle and return by the side aisle, observing the 6-ft distance markers on the floor. Everyone should leave their seat even if you do not plan to receive Communion in order to avoid people having to step over one another.

Holy Communion will be distributed by means of the Consecrated Host only. Please fully extend your arm with hands cupped as the priest/deacon drops the host into your hand. Then step to the side, where the floor is marked, lift up the bottom of your mask and place the host into your mouth before returning to your seat.

Please be mindful to not come into contact with the priest or deacon while receiving Holy Communion. If contact is made, the priest/deacon will purify and sanitize their hands before continuing to distribute Holy Communion. You cannot wear gloves to receive Holy Communion.

Priests, deacons, and other ministers of communion will wear a mask for the distribution of Holy Communion.

Remove masks only to receive Holy Communion.

After Mass:

At the end of Mass, please leave the church immediately by the doors that you originally entered.

The ushers will guide you row by row from back to front, maintaining the 6-ft distance requirement. Bulletins will be available for pick-up as you leave. (please do not carry bulletins in to mass with you!)
