Just in Case You Missed Friday’s News…
Last Friday, Fr. David announced that as of June 4, 2020 we have received certification from the Diocese in order to move forward with the process of reopening. The weekday and weekend schedules are being determined and we look forward to sharing these with you in the near future. (If you missed the entire letter that was sent in last Friday’s Flocknote Check-In, it is attached below.)
With this great news, there are some important realities Bishop Pates wants us to be aware of, including: Each church should only open for each of the three phases when we are ready and have enough volunteers trained to assist with the requirements of each unique phase.
We cannot stress enough the importance of volunteer assistance. You may hear of other churches in our area that are reopening within varying time frames. However, it is only when we can confidently assure you we have enough volunteers trained, scheduled and committed to assist with the directives we must adhere to, will we be able to schedule the celebration of Mass and the other sacraments.
If you consider yourself healthy and at low risk and wish to get involved as a member of the Setup or Greeter team, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
