While we had a slightly bigger crowd at Masses last weekend, more and more people are finally returning to Mass. As the various protocols from the State and Federal government shifts, we are slowly returning towards normalcy. The Mask Mandate in New York State has lifted for those who are vaccinated. Masks are no longer required for entry into any building of campus for those who are vaccinated. We still encourage you to use a mask when attending Mass even if you are vaccinated. The Priests, Deacons and Eucharistic Ministers are still required to wear masks for distribution of Communion. Likewise for our Homebound Ministry to distribute communion, masks are worn for the protection of the minister and the faithful.
Bishop Barres has announced that the dispensation of the obligation to go to Mass will be lifted on the weekend of August 14-15, 2021. Before then, we will continue to gradually get back towards normal. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
For now, we continue our walk with the Lord.
