Bishop Stowe Ends Mask Requirement for Masses

My Dear, Dear, Parishioners,

The long awaited time has come when we are no longer required to wear masks at Mass or parish events!  

There will be many decisions to be made and more announcements to share in the days ahead but here are a few important bullet points.  

  • We support anyone who wishes to continue to wear masks to protect themselves; especially those with conditions that compromise their immune systems.  
  • People with immune compromised conditions are still dispensed from attending Mass.
  • Let us be mindful of those who will still want to protect themselves by distancing.
  • It is more important than ever for each of us to pay attention to our own health; and if we feel sick to stay home from church.  It has always been accepted that we are allowed to miss Mass in case of sickness.  
  • The arrangements of chairs in church will remain as is for the immediate future.

Let us continue to pray for those who have lost loved ones, those who suffer lasting effects from the virus, and those in the health care system who still face many challenging circumstances.  

We look forward to seeing you!!

Fr. Pat & Staff
