Welcome to Holy Trinity

Church Re-opens

Re-Opening our Church

 

As our churches re-open there are things you will need to know about the new protocols.

 

Please take note of and keep the following in mind:

  • Attendance will be limited
  • Physical distancing will be the norm
  • Mass will look, sound and feel different
  • The dispensation from the Sunday obligation will continue
  • The pandemic is not over and attending Mass comes with a risk
  • Please be patient as we all adapt

 

How will church be different.....

Before Mass

  • please use the main entrances of the Church.... Detroit or Nagel Road doors
  • when you enter, be sure to tell the usher how many people are in your party
  • the usher will hand you a disinfecting wipe and a paper towel
  • When you arrive to your bench, please wipe down the bench/kneeler to your satisfaction with the disinfecting wipe and dry it as you see fit before taking your seat... the ushers will collect the used wipes/towels before Mass begins.
  • households may sit together but must maintain six feet of distance between their household and other households throughout the celebration of Mass.
  • wearing a mask is encouraged

During Mass

  • holy water fonts will remain empty
  • there will be no missals or hymnals in the pews
  • the ushers will dismiss you from your pew at Communion time, please maintain proper distance between you and the other Communicants.

After Mass

  • households should depart from the church in an organized manner while observing six feet of distance between other households
  • bulletins will be available on the shelves and not handed out by the ushers.

 

Wearing a mask is highly encouraged.
