MASS UPDATE: To promote social distancing, our seating capacity at each parish will remain at 50%. The Sunday obligation has been lifted, however, until the crisis passes. Mass is offered during the weekdays as well, so please consider going during the week. If you are not feeling well, are 65 and older, or have an underlying medical condition that puts you at risk for the virus, please stay home for your own safety. In the church, please follow the signage in regard to social distancing (6 ft between people).  Some of the pews are taped off to support social distancing and are sanitized after each Mass. A basket is in the vestibule for collection envelopes. Frequent handwashing (20 seconds is recommended) and the use of hand sanitizers is expected. Masks are now required in the state of Minnesota. If you need one, free cloth masks are available in the vestibule.
