For those who feel the need to socially distance and wear a mask, seating will remain the same on the Mary side of the church. Please wear a mask if you sit on this side. (The right/west side of the center aisle).

Seating on the baptistery side will return to open seating without masks. (The left/east side of the center aisle).

Holy Communion

The distribution of Holy Communion will return to its regular time during the Mass. We are implementing a new traffic flow pattern.  Everyone will  receive communion from a minister located in the center aisle. Please follow the directions of the ushers. 

Drive through Reception of Holy Communion will still be available from 11:15-11:30am on Sundays until further notice.
