GUIDELINES FOR MASS
Stickers are placed on the pews as to where seating is available and pews have been taped off to allow for social distancing.
Holy water fonts are to remain empty until further notice.
All hymnals/missalettes are to be removed and stored for the time being. Disposable worship aids will be distributed and then discarded.
The practice of passing baskets throughout the assembly for offering collection is temporarily suspended. Baskets will be placed throughout the Cathedral for you to place your envelope.
Physical contact during the Lord’s Prayer (holding hands) and the Sign of Peace is suspended. For the Sign of Peace, you are encouraged to bow to others and offer words of peace.
For receiving Holy Communion, it is highly encouraged and strongly recommended that the reception of Holy Communion be given in the hand. While reception of Holy Communion on the tongue cannot be prohibited, it is discouraged at this time. Those desiring to receive Holy Communion on the tongue are to be last in line and receive only from the priest. In the event that the priest’s fingers come in contact with the mouth and/or saliva of the communicant, he will immediately sanitize his fingers before continuing with the next in line. The priest will direct you by section when you are to begin receiving Holy Communion. Markings are placed on the floor to keep a social distance when approaching.
Reception of the Precious Blood from the chalice by the assembly is temporarily suspended.
When approaching the minister, if wearing a mask, the communicant is to pull their mask below their chin.
