The following procedures have been developed to follow CDC recommendations to ensure as much protection as possible for our Priests, our Parish Staff, and all who attend Mass.

The obligation to attend Sunday Mass remains lifted until further notice. If you are considered “at risk” under the CDC standards, please stay home and join us by Live Stream. The obligation to attend Mass remains lifted.
  • For now, Masses will be limited to 25% capacity. For Blessed Sacrament, that equates to 250 in our main sanctuary per Mass.
  • Those who arrive for Mass may not be allowed to enter the church if the numbers become greater than social distancing would allow.
  • Masks are strongly encouraged to be worn on campus and during Mass.
  • We have implemented cleanliness and sanitazation practices that includes cleaning pews between every mass.
  • Please afford us your patience and prayers. These procedures are an adjustment to us, as well. We promise to give you the best of ourselves as we work to allow as many as safely possible to the celebration of Mass.
The Church will be open for the celebration of Daily Mass beginning on Monday, May 18

Effective May 30, all Masses for both the Church and the Mission will be celebrated at the Main Campus in Clermont. Until further notice, the weekend schedule is as follows:

 
  • English Masses
    Saturday, 4:00 PM
    Sunday, 8:00 AM, 10:00 AM, 12:00 PM

     
  • Spanish Masses
    Saturday, 6:00 PM
    Sunday, 2:00 PM
  • Wash your hands.
  • Bring your own hand sanitizer that can be used before receiving Holy Communion.
  • Remember that the Chapel and Nursery are closed.
  • Do Not bring items that contain bleach into the sanctuary as this will damage the pews.
  • Masks are strongly encouraged to be worn on campus and during Mass.
  • Don’t forget: try to use the restroom before leaving home. This will help reduce unnecessary foot traffic during Mass.
  • Doors to the church will open 20 minutes before Mass begins.
  • All entry will be through the main doors. Side entrances will remain locked from the outside.
  • Staff will assist to seat your household. Every other pew will be closed.
  • Once your family has been seated, please help us ensure social distancing for all the faithful by remaining seated.
  • You may be sharing a pew with another household, but social distance is required between the households (6 feet).
  • The center sections will be seated first.
  • There will be no seating in the narthex, chapel, or choir area.
  • The holy water fonts remain empty.
  • Candles will not be available to be lighted.
  • As our Tabernacle is visible from the Sanctuary and we are not able to ensure proper social distancing, the Blessed Sacrament chapel will not be accessible
  • Masses will be celebrated similar to what you have seen on the Live Stream, with significantly reduced volunteers.
  • There is to be no physical contact between households at the Sign of Peace or hand-holding during the Lord’s Prayer.
  • Use of personal hand sanitizer before communion is strongly encouraged.
  • To avoid unnecessary contact, all in attendance for Mass will participate in the Communion Procession. Those who do not wish to receive should remain in the procession with arms crossed as they approach the Blessed Sacrament.
  • Proper social distancing between households should be maintained throughout the entire communion procession.
  • The Bishop has directed that Holy Communion by the Sacred Host will only be distributed in the hand.
  • If a medical need prevents you from receiving the Sacred Host, please ask to speak with the Liturgy Coordinator before Mass.
  • After the Marian Antiphon, parishioners must remain in their pew.
  • Pews will be dismissed in an orderly fashion, using multiple exits.
  • You must exit your pew when prompted. Private prayer is not available after Sunday Masses to allow the church to be reset for the next Mass.
  • Clergy will not be available to greet as you exit.
  • Please do not congregate outside but head directly to your vehicle to allow the next Mass to start on time.
