On this coming Sunday, we will again have Mass in the parking lot as we did last Sunday. However, we learned something and that was technology doesn’t always cooperate. However, the 10:00am mass was a complete success. We put an altar out front of the entrance, got some quick assembly of speakers and were able to have a very successful celebration of Mass. That is what we intend to do this Sunday at both Masses. You will still have the opportunity to log into ZOOM from the parking lot. Both audio only or audio/video will be available, this will help if you have trouble hearing or are not parked in great view of the altar (of course it is all pending that ZOOM is up and working). You will be instructed to park in the same fashion as last week, all separated by one lane of parking between each row. Everyone should be facing the front of the Church in order to see the Mass. The collection and the Eucharist will be brought to you in the same fashion, given at the driver’s side. If the driver is not a Catholic, then the Catholic person should move to the back seat of the car on the driver’s side in order to receive.
I would like to start having Mass during the week beginning Monday, June 1st at 8:30 a.m. We will have to work out how we will be able to keep the regulations about spacing and numbers inside the church. I am recommending that for now you can sign up for only one space per week. You can do this until we know how many people will actually attend. We just want to be sure that everyone has a chance to attend. It might be that you can attend everyday if there are not too many attending, we will just have to wait and see. We can seat approximately 20 people/families in the church and another 7 - 10 in the gathering space. A family living together can be considered one person and will occupy one row. Daily mass will be Monday - Friday 8:30am (no Saturday masses at this time).
You will have to call in or email the parish office Tricia or Martha between 9am - noon to attend mass the next day. If you call in after noon you will schedule for 2 days out (i.e. call at 9am Monday you will be signed up for Tuesday, call at 1pm Monday you will be signed up for Wednesday pending space available). When you call or email you will be given the go ahead of whether there is room at that Mass. Otherwise, you will be sent to the next available day. You cannot leave a message because we need to tell you when you call or email what day is available.
