Ministry Resources to Help During COVID-19 Coronavirus

Step out Stronger

Usher’s Mass, 
Sunday, May 24, 2020, 
9:00 a.m., 
Parish Center Mission Hall

We need many ushers to safely execute liturgies during COVID 19 and they would be more confident in their ministry with some training.  Therefore this Sunday you are invited to attend the 9:00 a.m. streamed Mass at the parish center mission hall.  Please arrive by 8:30 as we will demonstrate the experience of being checked in, going to an appropriate sized row for your group while maintaining social distancing.  You are welcome to bring a couple other family members along so we are accustomed to different sized groups.

After Mass we will talk about your experience of Mass and what we can learn from the experience as we make final plans for the first set of larger group Masses on May 30 and 31.  We will open the church after this discussion so you can be familiarized with the space.

If because of Memorial Day weekend plans you cannot attend this liturgy, Fr. Mike will repeat the training (without a Mass) on Wednesday, May 27 at 7:30 p.m. at the church at the new portico entry.

As always, facial masks are highly encouraged as science has shown they knock down transmission of respiratory diseases from 70% odds to 5% for half of the people wearing masks to 1.5% if all people are wearing masks.

Please be respectful of the risk factors you are prone to because of health conditions or age.  Safety is our first priority, we can figure out all of the other details with patience and creativity.  So if you cannot responsibly help with this ministry at this time, simply be honest with us, we can figure out other solutions.

Blessings,

Fr. Mike
