We are happy to announce that we will be continuing with our schedule of outdoor Masses on the parish lawns this weekend. Parishioners are invited to bring lawn chairs or blankets for seating (chairs will not be provided.) Reservations are required for all Masses so we can comply with the guidelines regarding social distancing and capacity. Please do not come to Mass if you have not pre-registered, if you are sick, or if you have recently been exposed to someone who is sick.
Our anticipated Mass schedule for the rest of the summer is:
- 4:00pm Saturday Vigil Mass at St. Paul
- 9:00am Sunday Mass at St. John
- 11:00am Sunday Mass at St. John
Please visit our Outdoor Mass Guidelines and Reservations page for important information about coming to Mass and to access the online reservation link. Reservations will close on Friday at 10:00am (or when capacity is reached.)
Please note: In the event of rain, Masses will have to be cancelled. The decision to cancel will generally be made about 24 hours before the Mass, and all registered attendees will be notified by email. A notice will also be posted on the website.
Designated seating areas to accommodate household groupings of 1, 2, and 3 or more people have been carefully mapped out on each parish lawn to allow proper social distancing from other households. The lawn spaces at our parishes have drastically different layouts and capacity. St. Paul is able to accommodate approximately 100 people at a Mass, and St. John will be able to accommodate up to approximately 50 people at a Mass.
Please remember that the dispensation from the Sunday Mass obligation remains in place, and will continue for the foreseeable future. Individuals at particular risk, including older adults and those with complicating medical conditions, are strongly urged to avoid the risks associated with attending public celebrations of the Mass. A recorded Mass will continue to be made available every weekend on our website.
