An Important Update from Fr. Len

 

The Diocese of Metuchen has changed many restrictions.   Please take a moment to read through the following:

  • Parishioners are able to sit wherever they wish.  However, "the faithful participating in Mass are expected to wear masks in accord with CDC guidelines."  For those who would wish to continue social distancing, the section of the Church facing the organ/choir will be reserved for those preferring greater distance.  
  • Altar Servers and other liturgical ministers are permitted to return to service. 
  • The presentation of the gifts of bread and wine may be resumed.
  • The Sign of Peace should still be offered from a distance.  
  • Reception of the Sacred Blood (Chalice) is still not permitted. 
  • Since we use baskets for our collection, we will continue to use the box in the narthex for now.

As to non-liturgical events:

  • We are permitted to resume parish meetings and gatherings with the expectation to wear masks.  
  • We will resume in-person Shepherd's Meal on Friday, June 25, with limited service for the present time.

These are a good deal of changes after so many restrictions. Please be patient as we slowly work to achieve a new normal.
