Updated Covid protocols at Mass.
Bishop Taylor's March 25, 2021 letter begins, "Thanks to the cooperation of our people with the protocols we have had in place to mitigate the danger of the COVID-19 pandemic and the increasing number of people who have been vaccinated, we are now in a position to make a few modifications in the protocols to be observed effective April 1, 2021. We expect to be able to return to pre-pandemic conditions once everyone who wants to get a vaccination is able to get one."
You can see the full letter here.
Effective May 15, 2021, masks are REQUIRED only for the 11:30 Sunday Mass and for school Masses. Masks continue to be recommended especially for unvaccinated persons and those who are especially vulnerable. Communion can also be distributed on the tongue at Mass again.
