Letters from Father Dan

Dear Parishioners,

Governor Baker has lifted the restrictions on houses of worship. There are many variables to the reality of reopening our church, among them sanitation, physical distancing along with capacity-controlled Masses. We are so pleased to reopen on the feast of Pentecost, Saturday, May 30 & Sunday, May 31 with resumption of our regular weekend schedule of Masses of 4:00 PM, 8:00 AM &10:00 AM for the summer months. The daily Mass schedule will resume on Monday, June 1. Restrictions/guidelines for reopening include the following:

Diocesan Restrictions

+ Omission of the Sign of Peace.
+ Communion in the hand only.
+ Holy Water fonts to remain empty and covered.
+ Physical distancing (6 ft. minimum) at all times.
+ Masks are required.

Additional Diocesan/Parish Guidelines
[Click Here for the Directives issued by the Diocese]

• Bishop has extended the dispensation of obligation to attend Sunday Mass at this time.
• Those who are vulnerable should not attend Mass in person.
• Masks must be worn prior to leaving your vehicle.
• The Main Street entrance to the church will remain locked until further notice.
• The Children’s Room will not be available for seating.
• Please do not congregate in the church facility.
• Please follow the usher’s directives.
• Communion will be distributed as Mass is dismissed. Please reverently exit immediately after receiving the Eucharist.

• Parish social gatherings and pastoral home visits are not allowed.

Understand that we have legally mandated occupancy numbers. Kindly know that it is not our intention to turn anyone away, however, we must adhere to these restrictions. A full list of Diocesan directives are available at www.saintceciliawilbraham.org  and www.diospringfield.org.  We are looking forward to worshipping as a Parish Community once again!
