We ask that all please be aware and follow the appropriate health protocols. Governor Abbott and the Open Texas Task Force ask that we:
Wash our hands frequently
Wear a face mask when in public
Observe social distancing (6 FT between non household members)
Additionally, upon receiving Holy Communion, Cardinal DiNardo asks that communion be received in the hand. Holy Communion is only distributed by the clergy and acolytes.
As of September 26, the Archdiocese has approved attendance to be at 50% capacity (approximately 800 in the church). As you may have noticed, the pews are no longer roped. Please be mindful of others when sitting in a pew.
For your protection and safety, all of the surfaces in the church and chapel have been treated with an anti-microbial barrier and the entire church and chapel have been sanitized.
There is no offertory collection or procession, parishioners are asked to make their stewardship offerings electronically, by mail, drop their offerings in the baskets at the doors of the church or bring them to the parish office during the week.
Parishioners who are in “at risk” groups should refrain from attending Mass and are encouraged to pray the Liturgy of the Word and make a Spiritual Communion. Those who are sick should not attend Mass until they are recovered. For the Liturgy of the Word and additional resources, please visit our web page Pastoral Care for Families at Home.
Parishioners who are concerned about attending Mass at this time are also encouraged to stay home, pray the Liturgy of the Word and make a Spiritual Communion. For those concerned about coming to Sunday Masses, consider attending to weekday Mass.View current Mass Schedule.
Please continue to pray for an end of this pandemic.
