Things continue to change in our Parish as we adjust to this “new” normal. We are adjusting the schedule regularly as the State and Diocese allows us to accommodate more people at Mass. The following is the revised schedule beginning on Monday, May 25. Until that time, there will still be two daily Masses celebrated at 8:00 a.m. and 8:45 a.m. The Sunday Masses have not changed but we are allowed to have more participants. Please call the office if you would like to attend a Sunday Mass.
Weekday Mass Schedule Change:
Beginning on Monday, May 25, there will be one daily Mass celebrated at Holy Family at 8:30 a.m.
--The doors will be locked at 8:30 a.m. to avoid unnecessary movement around the Church after the service begins so please be on time.
--No Reservations are required for these Masses
--Attendance at any weekday Mass satisfies the Sunday Mass Obligation
--RESERVATIONS ARE STILL REQUIRED TO ALL WEEKEND MASSES TO INSURE THAT WE KEEP WITHIN THE APPROVED NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS

Daily “Communion Service” Cancelled: On weekdays when daily Mass cannot be celebrated, there will be no Communion Service to replace the Mass. People may gather to pray the rosary but there will be no Communion distributed.
The Eucharistic Devotional Chapel will remain closed until further notice. The Church will be open daily from 8:00 a.m. until 6 p.m. unless otherwise indicated. (Please follow bulletin announcements).
Thank you for being flexible as we chart our course through these trying times.
