Church Updates – May 17, 2021
As our state and country begin to move back to normal, the Catholic Conference of Ohio has announced that the dispensation from the obligation to attend Holy Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation will be lifted beginning the weekend of June 5-6, 2021. Please click here to read the details of their letter.
Beginning May 22-23, we will begin moving our church building back to full capacity, with seating in every pew. We will keep a reserved section on the baptismal font side of the church for those that wish to maintain social distancing. We will also continue our livestream of Masses for those who do not feel comfortable worshipping in person.
We will also begin phasing back in lectors and eucharistic ministers, as well as congregational singing.
Bishop Brennan has asked us to continue to observe precautions including restricting the Sign of Peace, Holy Water in the fonts, and the distribution of the Precious Blood at Mass.
We will continue to follow all state guidelines regarding masking until they expire on June 2, 2021.
Thank you for your continued patience, support, care, and concern during this pandemic. We will continue to pray for those affected by the coronavirus.
Sincerely in Christ,
