    Weekday and Weekend Mass Schedules remain the same.

    • If you are not feeling well do not attend Mass.  As of October 1, 2020 the dispensation from Sunday Mass has been lifted. (this website has computer link on home page to livestreamed Sunday Mass 9:00 AM from the cathedral in Victoria).
    • Parishioners unable to attend Mass will be able to receive the sacraments of Reconciliation and Communion in the office during these scheduled times: Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday 10:00 am–12:00 pm and 3:00 pm–4:00 pm each of these days (Father Gabriel will be available in the office during these times).  Proper social distancing should be followed for those in line.  This schedule applicable through the month of May. 
    • Parishioners are encouraged to wear masks when entering the church.   Hand sanitizer will be available at the entrance of the church and should be utilized.  The ushers will be required to wear masks.  The mask will be removed when receiving Communion.
    • The pews will be sanitized after each Mass as well as the bathrooms.
    • Offertory collection—parishioners should not touch the basket when placing the envelope or cash in the basket.
    • The offertory procession will be discontinued at this time.  Usher will be taking the offertory collection basket to the front of the altar.
    • The Sign of Peace is suspended at this time.
    • The distribution of Communion will be only under one species and should be only received in the hand.  The priest and Eucharistic minister will wear masks during distribution. The parishioner should practice the safe distance protocol (6 feet) when standing in line for communion.  Ushers will assist with queuing up for Communion.
    • Parishioners should not gather too closely when entering or leaving the church.  After the conclusion of Mass, everyone should exit the church and not gather in the foyer. 
    • Parish meetings and gatherings of a smaller size on parish grounds may be resumed, while utilizing established protocols for social distancing and other safety measures.

    These guidelines and protocols are for the health and safety of our parishioners during this time. We need to “patiently bear with” some of the above current changes and restrictions.The above procedures were prepared by the Bishop’s office; every parishioner should be familiar with them. Be respectful of your fellow parishioner.
