As we rejoice at the possibility of returning to public Mass, we will need to take great steps to reduce risks. This means we need eight volunteers for every Mass. Please consider signing up here:
Those in a high-risk category, please consider remaining at home, the Archbishop includes anyone over 65 in this category. I also urge you to read the Protocols for returning to Mass.
Restricted Public Mass for both St. Mary’s (max of 85 people) and St. Michael’s (max of 135 people) will begin Thursday, May 28. You will notice that the sign-up includes Masses on Tuesday and Wednesday, but those will be used for training volunteers who are signing up for a time slot the first week. Those Masses still have the max of 10.
If you sign up to attend as a volunteer starting Thursday, you will be given a place to sit at Mass with your family for whichever Mass you volunteer to work. Any question email Flo Harris - email@example.com.
5/23 Message: As you likely know, Archbishop Hebda and Governor Walz have reached an agreement allowing us to begin public Masses next week at a capacity of 25%. (You may read the official letter from Archbishop Hebda or watch his video announcement online). This means a maximum of 135 persons at St. Michael’s and 85 people at St. Mary’s. Given the time needed to train volunteers and prepare our facilities, we will begin these public Masses on Thursday, May 28.
