Staying Safe At Mass

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to present challenges as our churches have been opened to the public.  Below are the expectations and precautions that might be useful for people attending Mass.
  • Attendance at ALL Masses is limited to no more than 50% of the church occupancy permit.  To maximize safety, entry to the church will be denied once that limit has been reached.  
  • All those defined by the health department as more vulnerable (60+ years of age, those with compromised immune systems, underlying health conditions, those who are especially anxious about being in a large group, etc.) are encouraged to stay home.
  • Anyone with fever or flu-like symptoms is asked to stay at home.
  • To increase safety, we have a State mandated Mask Order in place. If you do not have a mask, the parish will provide one for you.
  • Only two entrances to the church are open.  Church doors will be unlocked approximately 45-minutes before each scheduled Mass unless Reconciliation is scheduled.
  • Hand sanitizer stations are set up in the aisles to be used before the distribution of Communion.  The Precious Blood will not be distributed.
  • Social-distancing of a minimum of six feet between people not living in the same household must be followed.  Please be respectful of the space of others.
  • The Order of Worship is printed in the parish bulletin and distributed as you come into the church.  Please take the bulletin with you when you leave.
  • Please remain in your places except to use the restroom.

See You At Mass!

Weekend of Remembrance

St. Veronca and Nativity of the Lord will celebrate a Weekend of Remembrance on November 7 and 8 at all Masses. We will remember all those who have been buried from either church over the past year. The candle of the deceased will be located at the site that hosted the funeral Mass or service. If youhave a loved one who was buried at a different church, but would like their name to be included, please call your respective parish office and give their name. Names will be accepted for includsion in this special prayer until October 29.

El Día de los Muertos

Did you know that Halloween is part of a three day holy holiday? Halloween is a more modern way of saying, "All Hollow's Eve." "Hallow" is another way of saying, "holy." Halloween is the vigil of the Catholic feast day that celebrated holy people, All Saints Day on November 1. We celebrate all those who have died and are in heaven for all eternity, those who have been declared, or canonized, saints by the Catholic Church and those who lived good lives and trusted in the mercy and goodness of God. 

On November 2, we celebrate All Souls Day and pray for all those who have died and may still be on thier journey towards heaven. We pray that they attain the happiness and peace for which we were created. El Día de los Muertos, a tradition from Hispanic/Latino culture, conicides with All Saints and All Souls Day.

Southeast Catholic Youth Ministry will be highlighting various cultural religious practices throughout the year. We will be displaying altares de muertos at St Veronica and Nativity of the Lord November 2-9. Candles with names of parishioners who have died this year will be displayed on the altars. If there is a loved one you would like added, please contact [email protected] or 414-481-0777 by October 30.

South Shore Parishes' "Stay Home Reading" Fund Raiser

During the quiet times of COVID-19, why not strengthen your knowledge and faith by reading!! The South Shore parishes' Respect Life Committee were given these book for this purpose, to share with you and the encourage you to stay connected. You can help your parish meet their expenses during the challenges of COVID-19 by taking part in this fundraiser. For every $5 you donated you can choose a book you want. Click here for a link and to the instructions and order form. 

Candles Are Back

When the Archdiocese moved into Phase 2, we were allowed to again offer votive candles for lighting in church with restrictions. If anyone desires to light a vigil candle, they can do so by only using their own lighters. The spirit of the COVID directives discourages different people handling the same candle lighters (wood sticks or matches) to illuminate candles. We will not provide lighting material until the Archbishop takes us into Phase 3. You may also contact the parish office to have one of the staff members to light a candle for you. Thank you.
