                                                                                                                   Directives for Limited Mass Attendance

                                                                                                              Dear Parishioners of St. Joseph's and Holy Trinity Parishes:                                                                                                                             As I announced in the earlier email I sent out, we are resuming public Masses from this Friday, May 29, 2020. I will celebrate Mass at 8 AM and those who would like to come to daily Mass are welcome to attend.                                                                                                                                                                              There are going to be some changes which will remain in place for the foreseeable future. Firstly, we are being asked to maintain social distancing. Only 25% of the churches may be filled at any one time. I will be asking that every other pew be roped off. While families may sit together in a group, please keep a pew between yourself and the family or persons ahead of you.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Masks or face coverings are still strongly advised. Please continue to wash your hands frequently. Unfortunately, due to the flood in the basement of St. Joseph's earlier in March, we are unable to use the restrooms in the basement. We will need to ensure that the parish hall is open during Mass times.                                                                                                                                      We will continue to omit the sign of peace. Please do not hold hands during the Our Father. Communion will be given only under the species of bread and only the priest or deacon will give communion. During communion, please keep at least six feet between you and persons before you in line.                                                                                                                                              We will not use altar servers during the Mass. If the deacon is present, he will assist me. Otherwise, I will celebrate Mass alone, though the lector may read the readings. The gifts of bread and wine are to remain in the sanctuary. Collection baskets with the long handles are to be used.                                                                                                                                                          If you are feeling sick, have concerns because you have certain preexisting conditions which put you at special risk of complications, or have been exposed to someone who has been diagnosed with Covid-19, please do not come to Mass. The dispensations which Bishop Wall placed in effect at the beginning of this crisis remain in effect.                                                                                                                                                                     I realize that this is uncharted territory for all of us. For the moment, I will be keeping the same Mass schedule that we had in place before the crisis began. If we need to add an additional Mass, we will do it. We will not do like some parishes have done with taking reservations or a lottery. Seating is available on a first-come basis only. I ask that you respect the social distancing guidelines which are in place and which will remain in place for some time to come.                                                                                                                                                  I am looking forward to seeing you again. Please know that you are and continue to remain in my prayers.                                                                                                                                                Asking God's blessings on you and your families, I remain,                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Yours in Christ,                                                                                   Rev. Robert Badger                                                                             Parochial Administrator                                                                        St. Joseph and Holy Trinity Parishes
