Mass times for our Christmas celebration are different this year to allow for better social distancing. On Christmas Eve, we will have Masses at 3:00 p.m., 6:00 p.m., and 9:00 p.m. and on Christmas Day, there will be a 9:00 a.m. Mass. We plan to livestream our Christmas Day Mass at 9:00 a.m.
We want as many people as possible to be able to safely celebrate Christmas with us. Please RSVP by December 17 to help with this process. Complete the RSVP form below. We are aware that your RSVP doesn’t necessarily guaranty that you will be able to attend if someone is feeling unwell or if unforeseen events emerge.
Below are some of the safety protocols that we’ve implemented in response to the pandemic and trying to slow the spread of the virus.
▪ Worship area disinfected after each Mass.
▪ Everyone is required to wear a face mask. If possible, please bring your own mask with you. This saves us money on having to purchase disposable masks and is more environmentally friendly.
▪ No singing.
▪ Temperature taken.
▪ Physical distancing as recommended.
▪ Hand sanitization.
▪ One entrance in; separate entrance out.
As we have done in past years, during the Masses on December 24 & 25, all the “loose change” taken at the offertory will be distributed to the following local charitable organizations.

Whatsoever You Do
House of hospitality providing a safe space and programming for those who need to realize Christ’s dignity within themselves
NOTE: No one is obligated to attend Mass or receive Communion at this time. Bishop David L. Ricken re-instated the dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass until further notice because of the recent markedly high rise in the number of COVID-19 cases. Mass will continue to be celebrated every Sunday at all of the Diocese’s churches for those who are able to attend and willing to strictly follow the proper health protocols.
