IMPORTANT REMINDER TO MMOC PARISHIONERS:
Beginning this weekend, June 6-7, our Church will be reopened and public Masses will resume. For now, until announced otherwise, Holy Mass will be offered on Saturdays INSIDE the Church at 4:30. Please note: for Holy Mass indoors, the Diocese has directed us to limit the number to one third, so about 90 for our Church capacity.
Confessions will be heard from 3:30 to 4:15 pm, OUTSIDE, at the two metal doors adjacent to the Religious Education office (follow the red cones).
Holy Mass for Sundays (until otherwise announced) will be at 10:30 am OUTSIDE. Please enter our parking lot via either Union School Road or Saint Mary’s Drive, please form TWO car lines, and pull up to the Ushers for direction. Tune your FM radio station to 87.70, or you may live stream the Mass on your smart devices. Please park with a space between yourself and another vehicle. You may bring your own chairs and sit outside on the grass areas, 6 feet apart from others.
Masks are required to be worn inside the Church and also outside if 1) you are sitting in chairs, or 2) your vehicle windows are down. Those with legitimate health concerns and those ages two and younger are not required to wear masks.
Holy Communion will be distributed to those who wish to receive the Holy Eucharist ONCE MASS IS CONCLUDED. The Diocese has asked all others not receiving Holy Communion to kindly please depart, and have directed that no socializing or gathering are to be permitted, either inside or outside. Instructions for how to receive Holy Communion will be given at the Masses this weekend.
There will be no congregational singing at any Masses, no distribution of the Precious Blood, no Sign of Peace, and no hand holding. Please only use the bathrooms for legitimate needs or emergencies.
Please stay safe, God bless.
