Our mass attendance at both parishes is slowly growing. We are doing everything possible to keep it a safe environment. As we near capacity for our space, we are looking at ways to maximize the attendance while keeping the safe six feet between households. One way to do this at Resurrection is to use every side pew instead of every other one. We can still keep the six feet necessary if we seat only single people in those pews and they stagger between sitting on the aisle and against the wall. This will mean that single people will be directed to the side pews. I know that many of you have your favorite seating preferences, and if there is a really strong reason that you need to sit in a certain pew or section, you need to let Cindy know. But also know that it is difficult to grant many exceptions when we are trying to use the space most efficiently. Your understanding and cooperation is most appreciated. And remember that those seating you are volunteers, so save your grief for me.
We will eventually have to add more masses, but to do so, we need volunteers to seat people and clean the church after the people leave. If you are willing to take on one of these roles, please let Cindy Desrochers know. (410-514-2022) firstname.lastname@example.org.
Starting Oct. 4th , we will live stream a mass from Resurrection Chapel at 9 AM on Sundays and have a little chat time following similar to what we did when we first started to send out the mass. The Saturday evening Mass at St. Paul will continue to be recorded and posted to YouTube.
Pray for a vaccine soon!
