Updated Mask Policy and other Covid restrictions: As of mid-June, the diocese has released us from any further Covid-19 restrictions.  You will not be required to wear a mask and you may sit where you like.  We do ask that you respect the wishes of those around you however.

Communion will be served in both kinds, but at least for now, we will continue to come up pew by pew as we have been doing.  You may receive standing or kneeling at the rail.  If you wish not to receive the chalice, simply cross your arms.
