Staying Safe At Mass
- Attendance at ALL Masses is limited to no more than 25% of the church occupancy permit. To maximize safety, entry to the church will be denied once that limit has been reached. In spite of what other parishes may be doing, funeral visitations prior to Mass are not allowed per the Archbishop.
- Archbishop Listecki continues the dispensation from the Sunday Mass obligation through September 6, 2020, for those who are vulnerable or not comfortable returning.
- 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 encourage you to wear a mask and suggest that you bring hand sanitizer if possible. 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.

South Shore Parishes Update
Fr. Carmelo recently made an announcement regarding the structure of our South Shore Parishes. Fr. Arul has been reassigned to Holy Apostles in New Berlin while leaving St. Paul and Sacred Heart of Jesus. Originally Fr. Jon Jenkins was going to be an Associate for St. Paul and Sacred Heart of Jesus, but he was directed by his Ordinary to take a parish in Texas instead. The new arrangement will have Fr. Carmelo add St. Paul to his pastorship and Fr. Phillip Schumaker will add Sacred Heart of Jesus. These changes take place August 4. The logistics of Masses and all other operations are yet to be determined once the needs are known. Please pray for Fr. Carmelo and Fr. Phillip and yourselves, as change is imminent for all six parishes. God listens to your prayers and always leads us down the path that's right for us. HAVE FAITH!
