Mass is Cancelled

We are grateful that the leaders of our country are employing every means possible to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus here in the United States. Recommendations have been put in place by the CDC and local health officials regarding social distancing and group sizes. We need to do our part in our chapels to ensure your safety.

For this reason we urge anyone who is sick, elderly, who cares for the elderly, as well as anyone who is vulnerable because of a medical condition, to remain at home while this threat lasts.

Thus, if you are sick, elderly, a caregiver, or if you have a compromised immune system, you may consider yourself dispensed from your moral obligation to attend Mass on Sunday. We will let you know of any changes to this policy.

Please follow the CDC recommendations and those of your health care provider.
