Our new Archbishop Gregory Hartmayer, O.F.M. Conv., has indicated that the dispensation of required attendance at Sunday Mass is extended "until further notice." Please revisit this website periodically to see if this has changed.
* All persons wishing to attend any Mass should, for their safety and the safety of others:
> not have a temperature of 99.6 or above, have current coughing/sneezing episodes, or do not feel well
> Must wear a protective face mask in church; it can be removed immediately after receiving Holy Communion to consume the Sacred Host.
> practice social distancing of 6′ separation from other households, including no physical contact during the sign of peace, or before or after Mass.
> Refrain from singing out loud (only the Music Minister and a select few choir members will sing)

- Please, we ask, Confession and Anointing of the Sick should be done only in genuine emergencies. Note that in circumstances where access to Confession is limited or unavailable, the Church does offer the provision of an Act of Perfect Contrition:
“Where the individual faithful find themselves in the painful impossibility of receiving sacramental absolution, it should be remembered that perfect contrition, coming from the love of God, beloved above all things, expressed by a sincere request for forgiveness (that which the penitent is at present able to express) and accompanied by votum confessionis, that is, by the firm resolution to have recourse, as soon as possible, to sacramental confession, obtains forgiveness of sins, even mortal ones (cf. CCC, no. 1452).” –Apostolic Penitentiary
Perfect contrition requires:
1. The love of God
2. The sincere desire for forgiveness
3. The ardent commitment to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation as soon as possible, when available
