UPDATE: Beginning next week, August 10, we will no longer require registration to attend our week-day Masses. We have been tracking the numbers at these Masses for quite some time and based on prior attendance we do not feel registration is necessary at this time.
We do require, however, that you please continue to register to attend weekend Masses, as those are frequently close to our current capacity limit. If you do not register, unfortunately, we are unable to guarantee you a seat at Mass. We do have a limit on the number of people we are allowed to have in the church at one time and ask for your cooperation. Registration for Mass does close 6 hours prior to the start of Mass. If you are planning to attend, please register prior to that time. Likewise, if you have registered for Mass and do not plan to attend, please cancel your reservation to open up that spot for another family that might want to attend. To cancel your Mass reservation please follow the link in your confirmation email.
As you are aware, we can, once again, gather for Mass, but we are limited to only 175 attendees per Mass.
We ask that you please stay at home if you are considered vulnerable due to age (over 60) or underlying health conditions (e.g., immunocompromised; heart, kidney, or liver issues; diabetes; hypertension; Crohn’s disease; cancer; rheumatoid arthritis; asthma; COPD, etc.). We WILL continue to record Mass Tuesday – Friday and will record one weekend Mass that will be emailed to you on Sunday. If you are sick, please stay home. Bishop Walkowiak has dispensed the obligation to attend a weekend Mass until June 30.
Because we are limited to only 175 people per Mass we need you and your family to sign up to attend only one Mass per week. Please sign up by “purchasing” a FREE ticket that does not need to be presented at Mass and please plan on arriving 20 minutes before Mass. Thank you!
While we are looking forward to having you back at church, please carefully read through the following items to help ensure a spot for you and your family at Mass and to ensure the healthy and safety of all our Holy Spirit families.
- Due to public health restrictions on attendance, we can fill 25% of our total sanctuary seating. As mentioned above this will allow 175 people inside the church at one time. Seating will be handled by sign-up, on first come, first serve. This means that not everyone will be able to attend Mass on Saturday or Sunday. For this reason, Bishop Walkowiak has dispensed the obligation to attend a weekend Mass until June 30.
- We are opening up all daily and weekend Masses to provide as many opportunities as possible for parishioners to attend Mass. We are asking that you please sign up to attend a specific Mass to prevent you from being turned away at the door once our capacity has been reached. Sign-ups also provide a more equitable way of ensuring all parishioners have the ability to attend Mass.
- We are asking those who have more flexible schedules to please attend one of the weekday morning Masses.
- If you are not attending Mass on Saturday evening or Sunday, we ask that you please continue to “keep the Lord’s Day holy” by viewing the Mass online at our parish website.
