Public Masses have resumed! A Message from Christopher Huntzinger:
We are scheduling lectors and cantors only at this time. We willlet you know as soon as scheduling of Altar Servers and Extraordinary Ministers resumes. We will continue to record the 5pm Mass on Saturday and post for those who cannot attend Mass.
Please note that if you are immuno-suppressed, older or not comfortable coming back to Mass at this time – WE (Father Erik and the Liturgy Team) TOTALLY UNDERSTAND AND SUPPORT YOU – please do not feel pressured but please do reach out through email or a phone call to let me know so I can have a plan to cover the Lectors.
It is important that we MUST LOCK THE DOORS of the church when we have reached capacity – it is mandated by the Diocese and the only way to continue reopening in stages. If the doors are locked please do not despair! You may come to a later Mass, participate online or know that the dispensation from attending Sunday Mass is still in effect.
To keep the nave safe and properly ‘social-distance’ we have roped off every other pew and St. Ambrose staff will sanitize after every Mass.
We have also taken the hymnals out of the church to aid in sanitizing and a single use worship aid will be provided. A few copies of scripture readings will be available for those who require them and these will also be single use. The Social Hall (basement) will be locked. There is no access to the basement at this time.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns
