WEEKEND MASS SIGN UP

WELCOME!

Thank you for your willingness to pre-register for our Weekend Masses here at Saint Mary’s Parish.

We have carefully developed a plan that is designed to protect the well-being of every person who gathers in our church building.  We know that we can count on your patience and good cheer as we continue to implement these adjustments to the normal flow of our parish life.

Please note the following guidelines for coming to Mass:

Prior Considerations:

  1. Do not attend Mass if you or someone in your household answers “yes” to any of these questions:
    1. Do you currently have a fever (your temperature is 100.4 degrees or higher)?
    2. In the past two (2) weeks, have you traveled internationally?
    3. In the past two (2) weeks, have you presented symptoms of COVID-19 with no alternative diagnosis?
    4. In the past two (2) weeks, have you been exposed (less than 6 feet for greater than 15 minutes) to anyone who tested positive for COVID-19 without wearing the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) as defined by the Center for Disease Control & Prevention?
    5. Have you been tested for COVID-19 and are still awaiting the test results?
  2. Be sure you have pre-registered you and the members of your household for Mass.
  3. All social distancing (6 feet) norms must be observed. There will be markers outside the church and lines inside the church as guides.
  4. Everyone, age 5 and older, must bring a face mask that covers the mouth and nose and the mask must be worn at all times inside the church building.
  5. Please be sure all members of your household arrive together.

At Church:

  1. Doors will open 30 minutes prior to the start of Mass and will be locked once Mass begins. Latecomers cannot be seated once the doors close.  Please be on time.
  2. If you have special needs (wheelchair, walker, cannot use stairs), please arrive soon after the doors open to ensure available seating.
  3. Social distancing norms will be observed. There are markings on the sidewalk outside and inside the building as a guide.
  4. When you arrive, your “household” (all those living in the same house) must approach together and answer the following questions:
    1. Do you currently have a fever (your temperature is 100.4 degrees or higher)?
    2. In the past two (2) weeks, have you presented symptoms of COVID-19, such as fever, chills, sore throat, cough, shortness of breath, muscle pain, loss of taste or smell, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea, with no alternative diagnosis?
    3. In the past two (2) weeks, have you traveled internationally?
    4. In the past two (2) weeks, have you been exposed – less than six (6) feet for greater than 15 minutes – to anyone who has tested positive for or exhibits symptoms of COVID-19 (with no alternative diagnosis), without wearing the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention?

If anyone in the household answers “Yes” to any of these questions, or is not wearing a face-covering (if age 5 and older), your household cannot be permitted to enter the building.

  1. After checking in, proceed to the entrance of the church. Do not congregate in the commons.  Keep moving to the entrance of the church.
  2. Please wait at the entrance of the church until called by a staff member who will seat you. You may not seat yourself and you will not be seated until your household is together.
  3. After being seated, please do not get up and walk around the church. We ask that you remain in your seat unless it is an emergency.  Those moving around will be asked to return to their seat.

After Mass:

  1. Following the final blessing, all will be seated.
  2. We will dismiss the church row by row. Again, social distancing should be observed as you leave.
  3. Please do not stop and congregate in the Commons. Continue out the doors into the parking lot.

Thank you in advance for following these guidelines as we do our very best to keep people safe and healthy.

May God continue to bless you and your loved ones!
