A friendly reminder to all to practice safe social distancing in church. Do not crowd or gather at the entrances/exits. Kindly be mindful that masks should be worn at all times in the church. Please follow these directions for exit procedures and be guided accordingly by the ministers and ushers.
Everyone will exit pew by pew beginning with the pews in the back. Those seated behind the altar should exit through the Blessed Sacrament side. Those seated facing the altar should exit through the front.
Again, exit pew by pew and maintain social distancing. Let us do our part to protect ourselves and everyone around us. Si Yu’us Ma’ase.

Parishioners are reminded to stay home if they are sick.
Thank you for your continued prayers and support.
