Reopening: Mass Guidelines

Reopening: Mass Guidelines

Updated August 27, 2021

If you or others you know are more comfortable at a fully masked Mass, beginning Saturday, September 4th, masks will be required at the 5:00 pm Vigil Mass at Saints Peter and Paul. Thank you for your continued charity and understanding in these days.

See below for full guidelines.


Mass Guidelines

Before Coming to Mass

Please be sure everyone in your household thoroughly washes their hands for at least 20 seconds before leaving your home. Also, please have everyone use the bathroom before leaving home so that we minimize foot traffic during Mass.

Entry and Seating

Social distancing between people not living in the same household is encouraged where possible.

Distribution of Holy Communion

Clergy, with the assistance of the sacristan, will distribute Holy Communion.

Parishioners are encouraged to use hand sanitizer immediately prior to receiving Holy Communion.

If you would prefer to receive Communion on the tongue, please receive at the end of the Communion line and receive from the priest. 

Consistent with the Archbishop’s directives, the Precious Blood will not be offered at this time.
