Mass/event Guidelines – September 18, 2020

The Bishop has not changed any of the guidelines for Mass attendance. Therefore, we are still limited to 25% capacity in the church and all existing precautions will continue to be taken. The dispensation from attending Mass remains in place at this time.

Tables after Mass can only be outside, not in the Gathering Place.

No events involving food are currently allowed.

Other events (prayer groups, study groups, meetings, etc.) are limited to 50 people (previously 10), providing that Covid precautions can be taken (masks, distancing, etc.). All groups  other than those run by a Sacred Heart employee must sign a facility agreement at the Parish office when they book a room. Each group is responsible for wiping down tables and chairs used after their group meets. Thank you for your cooperation in allowing us to start to have meetings at the Church again.

Larger groups or groups that cannot maintain distancing requirements, may meet in the Church if it is available, but these meetings, like any other, need to be booked through the Parish office.
