It has come to our attention that as of 1:30 P.M. on Friday, December 18th, we only have a couple of seats left to reserve for our indoor Masses. At this time, a few remain for the 10:30 P.M. Mass on Christmas Eve through Phone-In Registration only.
Since our limited capacity for indoor Masses filled up so quickly, we would like to offer another option to those who were unable to get a reservation.
We invite you to park your car in an available spot in the parking lot during the 6 P.M. and 10:30 P.M. Masses on Christmas Eve and listen to the transmission of our celebrations in your car on the radio by tuning into 106.9.
After serving Communion inside the church, Fr. David and Deacon Mike will distribute Eucharist outside of the church at Door 12 in the front of church and at Door 11 on the Ministry Center side. Those who want to receive Communion should remain in their cars until Father makes the announcement to leave your car and then move on foot to where Father and Deacon Mike will be stationed.
Please maintain social distancing in line for communion and remove any gloves. Shortly before you receive, there will be an usher to spray your hands with hand sanitizer. Please keep your mask on until after you receive. Once you’ve moved away from in front of Father or Deacon you may take down your mask to receive the host. Please plan on dressing for weather conditions, with sturdy footwear.
At these two Masses on Christmas Eve at 6 P.M. and 10:30 P.M., Communion will not be brought to any individual cars.
If you have mobility issues, please plan on attending one of our parking lot Masses at 3 P.M. on Christmas Eve and at 9:00 A.M. on Christmas Day when ministers will bring Communion directly to your car.
