From Fr. John

 Church reopening

I have recently been thinking about the word normal, so I looked up the definition. It says that normal means “conforming to a standard, usual, typical, or expected.” When we return to celebrate Mass next week what we will experience is not what we would “normally” expect. There will be some temporary changes that we will have to put into effect to adhere to the new guidelines and directives.

As you may have heard by now public Masses within the Archdiocese will resume by Friday May 29, 2020. Our first weekend Masses will be for the Feast of Pentecost, May 30 and May 31. We look forward to being able to come together as a family of faith to celebrate the Eucharist publicly. Here are some of the directives and guidelines that parishes have received from the Archdiocese of Detroit and the CDC.

Parish churches are not to exceed 25% of total capacity for the church. This limit should allow people to remain at least six feet apart. Families can sit together. Face-coverings/ masks are to worn by the faithful in and around the church. Cleaning and sanitizing of church facilities. Physical distancing in the church and on church property.

Just a reminder that all faithful in the Archdiocese of Detroit are dispensed from their Sunday obligation to attend Mass though Sunday, September 6, 2020. Those older than 65 years old (the recommended CDC age), with a compromised health condition or caring for the sick in any way, should be encouraged to stay home. Anyone who is ill, has a temperature, cough, etc. should definitely stay at home. Instead of the passing of the basket for the collection, we will have a basket for you to place your envelope. Before and during Masses, I will be giving more instructions of the changes as well.

Please pray for patience during this time. We will get through this.

God bless, Fr. John
