RESERVATIONS REQUIRED FOR WEEKEND MASSES!
Click <HERE> to sign up for a Saturday or Sunday mass.
Weekday masses do not require reservations.
A reminder: Next Saturday, 8 August 2020, the Saturday Mass time will shift to 3:00pm and will be a celebration of the Sunday liturgy in order to accommodate more people who want to attend the Sunday Mass. The dispensation from the obligation continues in Ohio, but many have requested more space for Sunday Mass.
Reservations will be required, as will masks.
Streaming will be done on Saturday afternoon for the Sunday liturgy.

You can also call the office, 523-2153, M-F, 9am-5pm. Masses on Monday through Friday do not require reservations.
ARRIVAL TIMES MATTER! – We are filling the church from the front. Your Sign Up Genius reservation will tell you when to arrive. If you call the office to reserve, be sure to ask what your arrival time will be.
WEAR YOUR MASK at all time while in the church. Keep your nose and mouth covered. Some masks will be available in the vestibule.
SEE THE GREETER (WEEKENDS ONLY) - Check in with the Greeter on front sidewalk. Maintain 6-foot social distance spacing.
SANITIZE YOUR HANDS - Bring your own sanitizer if possible, but some will be available.
ENTER VESTIBULE – Wait for those in vestibule to enter nave. On weekends the Usher will direct you to your seats. M-F, seat yourself beginning with front center aisle seats.
SIT AT PEW END - To maintain planned spacing, do not move to the center or opposite end of the pew.
PEOPLE MIGHT PASS WITHIN 6 FEET - We will fill the church from the front to avoid new arrivals passing seated parishioners. Be aware that there could be some movement of people and someone may pass within 6 feet of you. This will certainly happen during Communion. When you exit after mass, please keep your distance.
COMMUNION WILL BE BROUGHT TO YOU – Stay in your pew. Remove or partially remove your mask for as short a time as possible while taking great care not to drop the host.
AVOID SPREADING DROPLETS – Limit talking. Quietly (or silently) recite prayers, responses, and Mass parts in order not to increase droplets in the environment.
EXIT BEGINNING WITH PEWS NEAR DOORS – High Street and Courtyard doors can be used. Maintain social distancing. Please do not remain for private prayer after Mass. Please do not gather in the courtyard.
