UPDATE ON DIOCESAN COVID PROTOCOL 

General Guidelines

Masks are strongly recommended indoors in all parishes for everyone. Those who are unvaccinated are required to wear a mask. We are working on an honor system for this, but parishes should clearly communicate this requirement through announcements, signage and/or electronic communications.

We will maintain social distancing in our parishes, in accordance with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control. This means people should maintain a reasonable healthy distance between themselves and others who are outside of their families. You can still have outdoor Masses to accommodate more people. Examine your seating arrangements carefully and see how you can safely fit more people into your parish while still maintaining a safe distance between family units. You may wish to ask your ushers and your congregation to help in this effort as they are seated. You may also wish to continue using overflow spaces where the Mass is broadcast to those who don’t fit into the main sanctuary.

We will continue to monitor the CDC as well as local health agencies guidelines and will go back to masks should the situation changes in any of our communities.

Holy water can be added back into fonts, but should be changed several times per week and the containers should be sanitized when the water is changed. You also have the option to add a sprinkling rite to all Masses instead of filling the holy water fonts. Make clear to the congregation that they are not required to bless themselves with holy water as they enter the church, but can use it if they wish.

Pastors should strongly recommend that all people get vaccinated unless a person has a medical reason not to do so.
