Re-opening of public mass
Public masses will resume on May 20, 2020. Please watch Fr. Stef's re-opening message to the parish, and then review these specific instructions for attending mass at St. Catherine:
Arrive to mass early.
Parishioners are encouraged to wear masks.
Enter via the center doors, which will be propped open.
Worship aids will be available on a table as you enter. Please take one to use in lieu of the missalette.
For weekend masses, ushers will seat households according to the Diocesan protocols. We will only use every other pew, and households will be seated 6 ft away from the next household.
If there is no place to safely seat your household, the usher will direct you to return home and watch a live-stream mass instead.
For communion, parishioners will remain in their pews. The Eucharistic Ministers will bring the host to you as you kneel. The host must be received on the hand only (not on the tongue). We will not be offering the Precious Blood.
After mass, you may exit through any door. Please do so immediately and do not linger inside the church.
Volunteers are needed to wipe down all surfaces after mass. Please ask an usher if you are able to help.
**Other activities will resume as we are able to do so safely. Please watch for future communication.**

Make a spiritual communion through prayer:
"Jesus, really present in the Most Holy Sacrament of the altar, since I cannot now receive thee under the sacramental veil, I beseech thee, with a heart full of love and longing, to come spiritually into my soul through the Immaculate Heart of thy most Holy Mother, and to abide with me, thou in me, and I in thee, in time and in eternity. Amen."
