See You At Mass!
South Shore Parishes’ “Stay Home Reading” Fund Raiser
During the quiet times of COVID-19, why not strengthen your knowledge and your faith by reading!! The South Shore parishes’ Respect Life Committee were given these books for this purpose— to share with you and to encourage you to stay connected. You can help your parish meet their expenses during the challenges of COVID-19 by taking part in this fundraiser. For every $5.00 you donate you can choose a book you want to read. Click here for a link to the instructions and order form.

Staying Safe At Mass
- Attendance at ALL Masses is limited to no more than 25% of the church occupancy permit. To maximize safety, entry to the church will be denied once that limit has been reached. In spite of what other parishes may be doing, funeral visitations prior to Mass are not allowed per the Archbishop.
- Archbishop Listecki continues the dispensation from the Sunday Mass obligation through September 6, 2020, for those who are vulnerable or not comfortable returning.
- All those defined by the health department as more vulnerable (60+ years of age, those with compromised immune systems, underlying health conditions, those who are especially anxious about being in a large group, etc.) are encouraged to stay home.
- Anyone with fever or flu-like symptoms is asked to stay at home.
- To increase safety, we encourage you to wear a mask and suggest that you bring hand sanitizer if possible. If you do not have a mask, the parish will provide one for you.
- Only two entrances to the church are open. Church doors will be unlocked approximately 45-minutes before each scheduled Mass unless Reconciliation is scheduled.
- Hand sanitizer stations are set up in the aisles to be used before the distribution of Communion. The Precious Blood will not be distributed.
- Social-distancing of a minimum of six feet between people not living in the same household must be followed. Please be respectful of the space of others.
- The Order of Worship is printed in the parish bulletin and distributed as you come into the church. Please take the bulletin with you when you leave.
- Please remain in your places except to use the restroom.
