Fr. Burt Absalon,


The current phase of reopening the Mass schedule is now limited to 40 people per Mass. We have resumed the regular Mass Schedule of 8:00 AM and 10:15 AM. Masks and social distancing are required at Mass. Registration is required to ensure we limit the participant to the appropriate number. 

How to Register to attend Mass — As we slowly, and in small gatherings, make our way to public Masses, we have considered many options for Mass sign-up in an effort to find a system that will be equitable to everyone. Thank you for your patience and kind consideration of others as we work through this process. We will be using Sign Up Genius. An account is NOT required. Please follow the link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040a44a5a628a2f49-mass

Mass Attendance Guidelines:

  • Masks must be worn (covering the nose and mouth) while inside the building
  • Hand sanitizer is available in the vestibule or from the greeter
  • Greeters will seat you from the front to the back to enable social distancing
  • No hand shaking during the Kiss of Peace,  Wave to greet your fellow parishoners
  • Greeters will release each pew for Communion to help facilitate social distancing
    • Please have your mask down prior to approaching the pries for Communion
    • Please put your mask back up after receiving Communion
  • At the conclusion of Mass, wait for the greeters to release each pew to enable social distance
