While the wearing of face masks is not required to attend Mass, it is strongly encouraged. There are pros and cons to wearing a mask and we respect that. But many people are still not coming back to mass because they do not feel safe. Out of Christian charity and love for our brothers and sisters, let us do what we can to make them feel safe. Your understanding would be greatly appreciated. If you do not have a mask we can provide you with one. Blessings to you.

What a joy it has been to celebrate public Masses at our parishes the last couple of weeks and what a blessing it has been to once again see so many of you!  We would love to see more of you, so we wanted to make you aware of the steps we are taking to ensure your health and safety.

 The number of people able to attend is limited to 25% of the church capacity, this is approximately 110 at each Church.  We do encourage you to arrive for Mass early.  If we do reach our capacity you will be directed to an alternate Mass.

As we gather again for the celebration of Mass, we all must do our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We want you to know that your health and safety remains our top priority.  As a reminder, some of the key measures we are taking include:

  • Stay home if you are ill, elderly, anxious or have underlying health conditions. Bishop Ricken has dispensed all Catholics in the Diocese of Green Bay from their Sunday Mass obligation until further notice.
  • Temperatures will be taken as you arrive.
  • Masks are strongly encouraged, but not required (as people may have underlying conditions).
  • Maintain six feet of social distance from others who are not from the same household at all times while in the church or on church property. We need your awareness and help with this.
  • Sanitize hands when entering and leaving church. Bring personal supply of hand sanitizer to use before receiving Communion, if possible.
  • Consider receiving Holy Communion on the hand. If you wish to receive on the tongue please come up for communion after those receiving in the hand.
  • Show patience and kindness as we navigate this phase together.
  • Note that all pews, handrails, doorknob, bathrooms and other high touch areas are sanitized after every Mass.
  • Please note, there will be no Holy Water at the doors, no exchange of the Peace and no distribution of the Precious Blood.

  • At St. Mary, please enter through the Link Doors and at St John please enter via the 5th Street door bear the school. In order to seat people to maximum capacity you will be guided to a seat by an usher and we will fill the churches from front to back. At the end of mass the Ushers will dismiss you by pew from back to front.

    Church doors will be opened a half hour before the Sat. and Sun. Masses. We ask you to arrive early so we can get your temperature taken and get everyone seated.

We continue to humbly ask for your assistance as a greeter, usher or cleaner at Mass.  Please note that you do not need to have previously served in one of these ministries nor do you need to have attended the recent training.  Brief instructions will be provided upon your arrival at Mass.

  To volunteer, please sign up by noon on Friday using one of the following methods:

Please be patient with us as we are doing our best to follow the guidelines set before us and keep us all safe. It is so wonderful to see your smiling faces once again in church!

Joshua 1:9!
