Guidelines for Attending Mass
We are pleased to announce that both Assumption and Saint Anthony's are once again open and offering the full schedule of Masses. For the time being we have added a Spanish Mass at 6:30 P.M. on Saturday evenings. Please be aware of the following rules issued by Bishop Tobin regarding the re-opening of our churches:
1. For the time being, Catholics will continue to be dispensed from attending Sunday Mass.
2. Access to Mass will be limited. Only 25% capacity will be allowed.
3. Everyone must wear a mask.
4. Pews will be sectioned off
5. Singing will be limited. For the time being there will be no hymnals.
6. Parishioners will receive Holy Communion in a safe manner.
7. The church will be sanitized after every Mass.
8. Budget envelopes will be submitted prior to Mass or as you leave.
9. Avoid personal contact with anyone. There will be no "sign of peace".
10. Those who are sick must stay home.
