The dispensation given by the Bishop of Pittsburgh concerning attendance at Mass (Precept of the Church) on Sundays and Holy Days of obligation is still in effect. The obligation to rest from unnecessary servile work and to sanctify the day by prayer (3rd Commandment) remains in effect.

For Sunday, June 28th there will no longer be a sign-up for going to Mass. Our 25% capacity is set at 250 persons. The side entrance will be the only entrance used. Individuals or households will maintain social distancing from other individuals and use the pews that are not sectioned off. For those who arrive after we have reached the 250 person limit, they have the option of waiting for the next Mass or notifying kindly an usher if they would like to receive Holy Communion after the full Mass. The usher can then let them how to go about that. Please note that demand has been highest for the 8 and 11 AM Masses, with plenty of seats available at the 5 PM.

Attendance figures for June 28:

  • 8 am - 198
  • 11 am - 184
  • 5 pm - NA
Beginning on Sunday, July 12, the Mass schedule will be modified as follows:
  • 7:30 am - Low Mass
  • 9:30 am - Low Mass
  • 11:30 am - High Mass
The 5 pm Mass will be discontinued.

If you would like to volunteer to help with the clean-up after Mass, please contact the parish office. Patience is a virtue.
