Cardinal Tobin announces the commencement of Phase Two of the Directives for
Re-Opening Churches on Monday, June 15, 2020.
Phase Two continues the dispensation from the Sunday obligation and Easter
Duty, maintains all provisions of Phase One and permits weekday Masses,
Funerals, Baptisms and Weddings (following directives of Phase Three for the
celebration of Mass).
All of the directives issued on May 11, 2020 and the emendations of the
Addendum issued on May 27, 2020 remain in force with the following additions
or changes only:
- The Addendum issued on May 27, 2020 indicates that the maximum
number of participants for public Mass, Funerals, Baptisms and Weddings is
ten (10), inclusive of all ministers and participants. The number of
participants is now set at 25% of the church’s capacity or 50 participants in
total, whichever number is lower. All the directives on social distancing,
wearing of masks and sanitizing remain in force.
- Phase Two should be used to test and fine tune the procedures for
implementation, particularly the provisions you will need to have in place
for communicating with your people and limiting capacity.
Therefore, starting Monday, June 15 th , Queen of Peace Church will celebrate live
Masses at 7:30 and 9:00 AM, Monday through Saturday. Mass attendance
at each Mass will be limited to 50 people and I ask your cooperation in
following this mandate. We will continue to live-stream a daily Mass
Monday through Saturday at 8:30 AM. Thank you and God bless.
Father Mike, Pastor
