Revised Mass Schedule
weekday Masses and 4:30pm Mass are held in our church
7am, 9am and 11am Sunday Mass are held at the KC Hall at 1270 Church Rd.
Before attending Mass, please review the guidelines issued from the Archdiocese. We will be observing social distancing at all Masses and all are obliged to wear a mask. The full text of the Guidelines can be found here. In addition, here are some answers to Frequently Asked Questions about the restart of public Masses.
Archbishop Robert J. Carlson has announced that parishes in the Archdiocese of St. Louis are permitted to begin resuming public Masses on Monday, May 18, at the discretion of each individual parish pastor. A detailed policy will be provided to parishes early next week, which will include directives and guidelines that must be followed carefully by each parish in order to resume public Masses. Read the full statement here:
While this is great news, there are many factors to consider in keeping our parishioners safe as we open our church to public Masses. As stated above, a detailed policy with guidelines that must be followed will be released early next week.
One anticipated directive that we want you to be aware of is: those who are at risk because of an underlying health issue or who are over 60 are strongly encouraged, for their own health, to avoid the risk of attending public celebrations of the Mass.
Committed volunteers from our parish community are needed to lead and coordinate the implementation of our response to the directives to observe proper social distancing, sanitation and use of gloves and masks at all weekend and daily Masses.
If you are interested in serving in this capacity, please let me or Father Blessing know that we can count on your support and your commitment to assisting at weekend and/or daily Masses.
Thank you for your support and prayers
