COVID Update

Masks must be worn by ALL who are not fully vaccinated - at Mass and also in all parish meeting rooms and offices.

The general dispensation from attendance at Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation ended as of Saturday, 22 May, 2021. Given the reality that the pandemic has not completely subsided, some persons may be prevented from attending Mass for legitimate reasons, including:

  1. those suffering from serious pre-existing conditions that may make them more susceptible to falling ill from COVID-19;
  2. those who are ill and homebound;
  3. a caregiver in close contact with someone who:
    • has tested positive for any contagious disease, including COVID-19;
    • is in quarantine due to exposure to any contagion or residing with someone who is in quarantine
