PUBLIC MASSES RESUMED JUNE 6 & 7
with consideration for the guidelines provided by the Diocese of Lansing.
We will gather in the Family Center
for 5pm Mass on Saturday.
Sunday Masses at 8am & 10:30am will be in the cemetery as weather permits.
Please be sure to wash your hands before leaving home. We ask that you wear a mask for the entirety of Mass and bring hand sanitizer to use before coming to receive communion. We will have the Family Center doors open so you can enter touch free. Upon arrival, you will select a seat that allows for your safety and comfort. **Please bring a lawn chair for outdoor Masses.**
As we begin to gather for public Masses again, let us remember to be patient and kind. There are many viewpoints on guidelines and restrictions and none of us know the health history or family history that affect the choices others make. While we are a parish family, we need to be mindful in these weeks ahead to keep physical distance between households before, during and after Mass, even when our inclination is to approach with a hug or a handshake. The safety precautions we will follow are meant to minimize airborne spread and allow for safe public worship. Please be prudent and respectful as we learn together to gather and depart safely as the Body of Christ.
Bishop Boyea has extended the dispensation of Sunday obligation through September 6 to allow for the most prudent decisions to be made regarding Mass attendance. Please stay home if you or any of your family members are ill.
An advisory update from Bishop Boyea:
"All public Masses, events, and gatherings are subject to the guidelines provided by the Diocese of Lansing beginning March 18, 2020 through September 6, 2020"
Indoor gatherings other than worship are limited to 10 people. Outdoor gatherings are limited to 100 people. All health and safety precautions including wearing masks and physically distancing between household are expected to be followed.
