Seating will be limited as per health protocols.
Begining July 4th the Mass Schedule is as follows:
Saturday - 4:00 pm at St. Patrick
Sunday - 9:30 am at St. Rose
Sunday - 8:00 am at St. Patrick
Sunday - 11:00 am at St. Patrick
Preparation for Returning to Public Mass Inside our Church
The 4:00pm Mass will still be recorded and will be sent to your email address. If we do not have your email address you may contact the parish office at (908) 475-2559 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added.
The restoration of Masses will occur in stages. We are now in stages I and II, which enforces strict social distancing and the reqiurement of masks. Phase II allows for the celebration of weekday and weekend Masses with a congregation of limited number and spacing, the use of masks and strict procedures for the distribution of Holy Communion.
As always, anyone who is feeling ill should stay at home. You should bring your own hand sanitizer and mask. When you arrive for Mass, an Usher will seat you, as certain pews will not be avaiable in order to insure proper distancing. We will not be using missalettes or hymnals at this time. You are permitted to bring your own copy of the Anawim Way, the Magnificat, etc.
The dispensation from the obligation of the Mass remains in effect until Bishop Checchio makes an announcement. Although it is our desire, no one is required to attend Mass at this time.
While the obligation to physically attend Mass is dispensed, the faithful are to keep the Lord's Day holy by some other means. If you cannot physically attend Mass you can view the Mass, from St Patrick Church ( through your email). You can tune into EWTN or a live streaming of Bishop Barron, or other Catholic Mass.
The Sacrament of Reconcilliation can be arranged by speaking directly to Father Charles or by calling the office. Every effort will be made to set a time and a safe place for you to have your confession heard.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact the parish office and we will try to help. (980) 475-2559
We are looking forward to celebrating Mass together this weekend, albeit in stages (phase II). If we are careful and work together to promote a safe environment, perhaps we will soon be in Phase IV, which offers more relaxed social distancing and optional use of masks.
Please see the diocesan wesite, diometuchen.org , for a more detailed description of the four Phases of reopening of our churches and for safety protocols regarding the church.
