OUR ST. VINCENT de PAUL FOOD BANK NEEDS YOUR HELP!!!!

St. Agnes’ St. Vincent de Paul Society needs to refurbish their food bank.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a greater need for food for those in need
and our St. Vincent de Paul Society is ready and willing to help. But in order to continue helping,
they need to fill their food bank back up. They are particularly in need of
dried or canned beans, rice, spaghetti or noodles, boxed macaroni and cheese, canned veggies/beans,
or even monetary donations so that they can purchase the foods. The monetary donations can be dropped off
in the collection basket in an envelope marked “St. Vincent de Paul donation”, or mailed to the rectory office.
Thanks again for your help!

MASKS IN CHURCH

COVID-19 MASS GUIDELINES

MASSES
Saturday 4pm
Sunday: 8:00am, 9:30am, and 11:00am
9:30am(Live-streamed -- Tune In HERE)

Beginning this weekend, we are planning to resume the normal
Mass schedule and the Church WILL OPEN AGAIN in accordance with the following new guidelines.

  1. We will begin with 4:00pm Vigil Mass this Saturday and on Sunday, we will have 8:00am, 9:30am and 11:00am Mass. The 9:30am Mass will still be live-streamed for those who cannot come to Mass. Please note there is NO CONFESSION. Confessions are by appointment only.

  2. Our church capacity is around 900 people, and we are only allowed 25% capacity, so we are looking at about 150 people at one time.

  3. Those who will attend Mass should wear a mask and make sure that your hands are sanitized before entering. Of course, we will have bottles of liquid sanitizers at the door for your use.

  4. To make it easy for everybody, we have marked the top of the church pews with blue tape to indicate where individuals and families can sit.

  5. If you are not with a family, please keep a distance of 6 feet away from each other.

  6. We recommend that if you are not well for whatever reason, please do not come to Mass. Stay home and watch the Mass on TV. Remember that you are still dispensed from the Sunday Mass obligation.

  7. At the Sign of Peace, please just bow to each other, no hugging, kissing, or close contact.

  8. During the Sacrament of the Eucharist, when receiving the Holy Communion, we will only distribute it in your hands and not by mouth. Make sure your hands are sanitized before receiving the Eucharist. Please remember to put your hands together and raise your left hand over your right hand higher than your chest, then the priest or Extraordinary Minister will place the host in your hand and you will consume it before returning to your pew. Those who are distributing communion will wear a mask.

  9. For your safety and for sanitary reasons, at this time there will be no missalettes or hymnals in church for use. If you have your own, you may bring it with you to church.

  10. For those who would like to use the bathroom, please make sure it is clean before and after your use, and that will make it easier for everyone else. We thank you for your cooperation.

  11. As Mass is ended and you leave, please avoid social gatherings inside and outside of church.


SUNDAY MASS WILL BE LIVE-STREAMED ON “YOUTUBE” EVERY
SUNDAY MORNING AT 9:30AM


ALL MASSES WILL BE LIVE-STREAMED ON YouTube.
TUNE IN TO ALL UPCOMING MASSES & EVENTS HERE
