UPDATED Precautions/COVID

UPDATED PROTOCOLS !
So that St. Matthew Parish may continue to provide the safest possible environment, please note and observe the following.

WE CONTINUE
•to wear MASKS in church.
•to practice SOCIAL DISTANCING.  We continue to sit in every other pew, prefering the ends of the pews before the middles of pews.  We continue to distribute Holy Communion to you at your seat.
•to use HAND SANITIZER as we enter church and at Communion time.
•to SANITIZE the church between Masses.

WE NO LONGER TAKE TEMPERATURES on entering church.
This means we DON’T need to enter through one door.
•Beginning Palm Sunday weekend (March 27th & 28th) the FRONT and SIDE DOORS OF CHURCH will be OPEN !!!

•Sunday Obligation:  The obligation to attend Sunday Mass remains suspended.  If you are ill or in a high-risk category for contracting COVID-19, or you simply not yet ready to gather in larger groups, we encourage you to remain at home and continue to watch the livestream of our 11:00 AM Sunday Mass.  Until you are ready to come back to Church, pray with us virtually.
Please, if you have a fever or are otherwise ill, stay home and watch the livestream.
