We have resumed Sunday Mass and Lenten worship in the church. All COVID precautions are being followed carefully: hand sanitizing, mask wearing, physical distancing, and various worship protocols (see details below). You do not need to sign up in advance, but please arrive a few minutes early in order to hand sanitize and to be ushered to your seat.
Mass on Sunday is at 10:00 am and Lenten Evening Prayer occurs on Wednesdays at 7:00 pm during Lent, with the Parish Reconciliation Service on March 10, 7:00 pm. The Zoom connection is https://zoom.us/j/98155735623 or dial in by phone 253-215-8782, Meeting ID: 981 5573 5623. We look forward to seeing you.
Caution! Those who are vulnerable, at-risk, or otherwise concerned are encouraged to stay home and attend Mass via Zoom Liturgy of the Word. Those who are sick, feverish, coughing or with other symptoms, must stay home and are not allowed in the church.
What to expect when you come. The campus is undergoing major transformation to make room for De La Salle North Catholic High School. When you come for Mass, please enter from 42nd Avenue. At the church door, drop off any persons who have trouble walking. Limited parking is available on campus near the church entrance and along the Killingsworth driveway. You are allowed to park in the PCC lot at the corner of 42nd and Killingsworth. You might also find parking on Emerson Street and 42nd Ave.
Entrance to the church will be available only through the northwest doorway. Please wear a mask (required for all those five years old and up). Use hand sanitizer upon entry. Someone will greet you and check you in. You will be escorted to your seat.
During Mass. While in Church and during Mass these restrictions apply:
· masks worn at all times, except to receive Communion
· no holy water in fonts
· no hymnals or bulletins
· no cry room
· singing allowed with masks on
· no holding hands during the Lord’s Prayer
· exchange of peace at a distance
· collection via basket available in back
· no Communion cup
· pews and all touch points will be sanitized after each Mass
To receive Communion, you will approach the front of the altar using either side aisle (not the middle) and return to your seat using the far side aisle. Please maintain six feet of distance from others.
When Mass concludes, please exit through the door you entered or through either of the Emerson Street doors. Due to construction, the gym doors are not accessible. We ask you not to congregate in the church after Mass.
