Public Masses and Sacraments

As Montgomery County prepares to move into Phase Two of it's reopening plan we are gradually easing into reopening the Church.

Daily Masses

Beginning on Saturday, June 27, Daily Mass will only be offered at 8:30am each day.  The Mass will be in the Main Church (17230 Tom Fox Avenue). There is no need to sign up in order to attend.

Sunday Mass

We have begun offering public Masses on Sundays in addition to offering a live-streamed Mass. 

For the weekend of June 27/28 the following Masses will be available:

  • Saturday 6/27 - 5:30pm

  • Saturday 6/28 - 8:00am

Montgomery County is restricting numbers, at this time, to one person or household per 200 square feet. In our Church, that translates to approximately 35 slots. 

There is no need to sign up in advance to attend.

Sunday Live-streamed Mass & Communion Services

We will continue to live-stream a Mass at 10:30am on Sunday as an aid for those who do not feel comfortable attending Mass in public.

Additionally, for those who only feel comfortable entering the Church for a short period of time, we will offer short Communion Services from 12:30-1:00pm on Sunday 6/28. Service will be offered at 12:30, 12:40, and 12:50. There is no need to sign up in advance. However, if a given group is too large, you may be asked to wait until the next service.

Guidelines for Attending Public Masses

Please note the following guidelines for attending Mass:

  • Parishioners who are older or who are at risk are asked to refrain from attending public Masses at this time. Please note: All people are dispensed from the obligation to attend Mass.

  • Masks are required at all times within the Church. Please bring a Mask with you.

  • Social Distancing (6 feet minimum) should be practiced while in the Church, while sitting in the pews, and during the distribution of Holy Communion.

  • Everyone is asked to bring their own hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes and to wipe down their pews before and after Mass.

  • Before and after Mass everyone is asked to avoid socializing within the Church building.

Dispensation from Obligation to attend Mass: 

The Dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation issued on March 12, 2020 by Archbishop Gregory, is still in effect until further notice for those who choose to remain at home, such as those particularly vulnerable due to age or pre-existing health conditions. 

We will continue to provide a live-streamed Mass on Sundays.
