AN UPDATE REGARDING MASSES AT ST. MICHAEL’S
St. Michael’s will begin the celebration of Sunday Masses in Church the weekend of July 4/5 with our regular schedule of Masses: 4:30 pm Sat. Vigil, and on Sunday, Masses at 8:00 am, 10:00 am, 11:30 am (Polish) and 5:30 pm. The 4:30 pm vigil Mass will continue to be live-streamed.
Fr. Rafal recently received a letter from the Archbishop regarding the celebration of public Sunday Masses, which states in part:
Masses indoors can accommodate 25% capacity or 100 persons, whichever is less, socially distanced. This is the number set by the State of Connecticut as of June 19. All requirements that the Archdiocese has established for parishes to open safely must continue to be carefully observed, including the elimination of singing. There will be no missalettes, hymnals, or bulletins. (an abbreviated bulletin can be found on-line).
“There can be no more than a total of 100 socially distanced (6 feet apart) persons. You must wear a face mask and must observe all the required precautions, that is; practice social distancing upon entering and exiting the church by staying at least 6 feet from people who do not live in your household.
Use the hand-sanitizer dispenser provided. Sit only in the designated pews. Do not shake hands with others. Do not congregate or socialize before or after Mass.”
Please follow all precautions to stay safe.
Parishioners are reminded that they are still dispensed from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass and that the elderly, the sick, and those who care for anyone who is vulnerable are encouraged not to attend at this time.
