Based on revised recommendations from the Diocese of Phoenix and the CDC, effective May 22, face coverings are optional at Masses at Sacred Heart Parish. Pews currently blocked off will remain blocked off to accommodate those who are still uncomfortable sitting close with others. All other safety protocols announced on May 1 will remain in place at this time. Please make the best decision for you and your family and continue to show compassion toward all fellow parishioners. The Bishop’s dispensation from attending Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation remains in effect UNTIL JULY 1, 2021.for those not comfortable attending Mass at this time. If you are not feeling well, you are able to stay at home and watch livestream Mass. After July 1, Sunday and Holy Day of Obligation Mass requirement will be restored.
Beginning the weekend of June 12-13. There will be more ribbons taken down. Gradually, each week, the church will reopen more pews so that by July 1, the entire church will be open. Along with this effort, most of the chairs have been removed from the Gathering Place since there is more room in the church now. We will continue to keep you informed as we take more steps to proceed back to normal Mass procedures. Thank you for all of your support.
