Catholic Comeback


 

Mass Schedule

  • Saturdays at 4:00 p.m.
  • Sundays at 8:00 and 10:30 a.m.
  • Live stream at 8:00 a.m.

The celebration of in-person Masses is dependent on volunteer involvement. Please consider getting involved. It is a wonderful way to get to know the St. Mary community.

Daily Masses will continue to be celebrated privately and shared via live stream at 8:15 a.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.


The following are directives we have received from Archbishop Listecki. These restrictions have been put in place out of the Archbishop’s concern for the safety of everyone at Mass. We share this concern and will follow these directives carefully.

Before Coming to Mass

*You must pre-register to attend Mass. Every person wanting to enter the church must have a pre-registration ticket. 

*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.

*Bring a mask for every member of your household and a bottle of hand sanitizer.

*Bring your pre-registration ticket(s) with you to Mass. Only people with a ticket will be admitted.

*Please dress for the weather (raincoat, umbrella, sweater) as you will be forming a line outside of the church prior to entry.


When You Arrive at Church

*We strongly encourage you to wear a face mask during Mass. Please put your mask on as you exit your car.

*No one will be admitted into the church through the Bell Tower or lower school entrances. Entry into the church will only be available through the main doors that lead into the Gathering Space.

*Please arrive 20-30 minutes before Mass begins. Doors will open 20 minutes before Mass.

*No latecomers will be admitted. The outside doors of the church will close and lock as the Gathering Song begins. It is imperative that you arrive early for Mass.

Procedure for Entry and Seating

*Everyone will line-up on the sidewalk on the west side of the church. Please observe proper distancing with those around you.

*Once the doors open, people will be stationed at a table outside of the doors to scan your ticket. Again, every person must have a ticket to enter.

*Households/families who wish to sit together must all enter the church at the same time.

*Once inside the building, you will be directed to walk through the Gathering Space to the interior church doors. You will then be directed where to sit. You may not choose your own seats.

*You may not congregate or socialize in the Gathering Space.

*Seating will be available in every other pew and no more than two households per pew. In the pews, we will distance households or individuals a minimum of 6 feet apart.

*Seating will begin, front to back, in the center two sections of pews and will continue outward to the remaining sections.

*Once you are shown to your seat, you must remain in the pew. You may not walk to another section to say hello to someone, and we need to keep trips to the restroom at a minimum.

*Vigil lights will not be available for lighting.

During Mass

* The Gathering Space may not be used by anyone before, after, and/or during Mass.

*No one may be seated on the window ledges behind the pews.

No collection will be taken up. Receptacles for your donations will be available as you exit.

*There will be no Presentation of the Gifts.

*There is to be no holding of hands during the Lord’s Prayer or physical contact for the Sign of Peace.

Distribution of Holy Communion

  • Only the priest is permitted to distribute Communion.
  • The Precious Blood will not be offered at this time.
  • Per the Archbishop, Communion may not be received on the tongue during this time.
  • Communion will be distributed to one section of pews at a time.
  • You will be directed row by row when to leave your pew. Please maintain proper distancing between you and the person in front of you.
  • Fr. Brian will offer you the Body of Christ at arm’s length. Please maintain a proper distance from him.
  • Once the host is placed in your hand, step to the side, slide off your mask, and receive the Body of Christ. Replace your mask and return to your pew.

*Communion for the sick will not be available at this time.

At the End of Mass

*Everyone must remain in their pew at the conclusion of the closing song.

*You will be directed, section by section and row by row when to leave your pew.

*When directed, you must leave your pew and exit the building.

*You will exit either through the Bell Tower exit or through the Gathering Space, determined by where you are seated. Please do not cross over to use an exit other than directed.

*Once you leave the building, you must go directly to your car. You may not gather on the lawn or in the parking lot to visit.

*If people do not cooperate with these directives, it may mean Masses will, again, be suspended.

*The outer church doors will be closed and locked once all have left the building so that all surfaces and restrooms may be cleaned and sanitized in preparation for the next Mass.
