New Mass Schedule & Guidelines
WELCOME BACK TO MASS!
The 5PM Saturday Mass & 9AM Sunday Mass are now celebrated in the church. Please join us!
We encourage parishioners in good health to come back to Mass. We are taking all safety measures to ensure cleanliness and social distancing. The church is cleaned after each mass. This is the reason we are only having 1 mass in church on Sundays for the time being. We have every third pew open for seating and look forward to welcoming you and your family back to church!
The 11AM Mass will continue to be live streamed on Facebook for those who are concerned for their health until the obligation to attend Mass is mandatory again. To view Mass on Facebook, please click here.
Daily Mass will continue in the Church Monday - Saturday at 8:30AM.
We will have one handicapped door and one main door open for entry and exit. The side entrances will not be used.
Please follow the arranged seating (every third pew).
Following the guidelines by the CDC and the Allentown Diocese, you are strongly advised to wear a mask during Mass.
There will not be an entrance or offertory procession.
If your child, age 10 and under, should need to leave the pew during mass, an adult must accompany them.
The choir loft, the mother’s room in the choir loft, the church basement and the downstairs bathrooms will not be accessible.
Choirs will not be scheduled until further notice. There will be a cantor. We will have one lector.
There will not be scheduled Altar Servers or Extra Ordinary Ministers until permitted by the Diocese.
Cash cards will be available.
Although we have begun having Masses, the obligation to attend Sunday Mass is still voluntary. If you are not feeling comfortable attending, but still would like to support the Sunday collection, you can do so in the following ways.
