As we slowly transition to our “new” normal, we are able to begin increasing the numbers of parishioners permitted to attend Mass on weekends.
The following will be the Liturgical Schedule for the Month of June:
Weekend Mass Schedule: 5:00 p.m. Saturday Vigil Mass with Music
(Only one Mass will be celebrated with no reservations required)
8:00 a.m. Sunday Morning (no music)
(No Reservations Required)
9:00 a.m. Sunday Morning Mass with Music (150 parishioners) **N.B.: Reservations are required for this Mass
10:00 a.m. Sunday Morning Mass with Music (150 parishioners)
**N.B.: Reservations are required for this Mass
Weekday Mass Schedule: Daily Mass at 8:30 a.m. (No Reservations Required)
(No Daily Mass or Communion Service: June 8-12)
Confessions: Saturdays from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.
Here are some important updates:
--Masks: In a recent directive from the Diocese, it recommends that masks should be worn by everyone entering the Church over the age of three. They are now recommending that the masks should be worn throughout the service and not removed for your safety and the safety of others.
--Church Doors Locked: Just a reminder that the doors of the Church will be locked promptly at the beginning of each service and will not be opened until after the service has ended. No one will be seated after the service begins.
--Reservations: Reservations for the two Sunday Masses (9 a.m. and 10:00 a.m.) are made through the Parish Office. You can make your reservations for the entire month of June for either the 9:00 a.m. or 10:00 a.m. Mass. It is important that if you make a reservation that you attend Mass at that time.
Thank you to all the parishioners for your continued and generous support of Holy Family Parish during these difficult times. Our “on-line giving” significantly increased during the last two months and also the mail-in donations. We have been blessed to have so many parishioners step up and help us meet our financial responsibilities.
Please continue to pray for our nation as we pass this grim milestone of more than 100,000 deaths in the past three months from the Covid-19 virus. And pray for all who have lost their income because their businesses have closed or they have lost their jobs. These are difficult times but our faith will sustain us.
