In-Person Mass at All Saints
It has been wonderful seeing members of our All Saints family in the pews once again. We look forward to your continued presence and to welcoming others back when they’re ready to return.
Our doors are open for in-person mass for those who are healthy and ready to return. Please note the following important reminders:
- Masks are required for all adults and children for ALL masses. Those under the age of 2 and any child or adult not able to wear a mask should not attend in-person at this time. Masks must be brought from home (we will not have extras) and remain on for the duration of the Mass.
- Please pay close attention to the celebrant during Mass for detailed instructions regarding proper procedures.
- Reconciliation will begin June 20 after the 8:30am Mass. There will be stations outside in the Columbarium.
- Please note that no All Saints ministries or activities are starting up at this time.
We are all in this together, and the safety and well-being of our parishioners, staff and clergy is our utmost priority. Everyone is urged to closely monitor their health and abide by the directives of federal, state and local authorities, as well as guidelines from the CDC. We look forward to having you back at All Saints very soon – whenever you feel comfortable returning.
Archbishop Gregory John Hartmayer has extended the period during which persons with health reasons or concerns are dispensed from the Sunday obligation to attend Mass through Sunday, August 1. Anyone who is sick or suspected of any threat of sickness should attend Mass virtually. All Saints will continue to livestream Mass Sunday at 10:30am, Monday-Friday at 9am and Saturday at 8:30am.
Please note that for the protection of our priests and parishioners at All Saints, we will continue to offer the Eucharist in the hand only.
All participants should take your temperature before leaving home and avoid coming to church if your temp is 99.6 or greater. Anyone who is not feeling well or believes they may be at an increased risk should remain at home and continue to view our livestream Mass.
The following Ministries will, unfortunately, not be incorporated into this first phase of the resumption of in-person Mass: Greeters, Altar Servers, Lectors and Extraordinary Eucharistic Ministers. Please understand our need to limit the number of participants in the Mass. We will update you and look forward to these vital ministries becoming active again soon.
- Receive only in your hand.
- The Precious Blood will not be offered.
- Maintain six feet between households at all times.
- Continue wearing your mask in the Communion line. After the priest gives you the Eucharist, step to the side, uncover your mouth and put the Eucharist in your mouth. You can re-mask as you return to your pew.
- We will continue to implement sanitization practices, including cleaning pews between every Mass.
- Disinfecting bathrooms, door handles, and other frequently touched surfaces will continue.
