Finally some light at the end of the tunnel! We will celebrate our First Sunday Mass open to the public next Sunday, May 17th. I am attaching the protocol for protecting you and your family. I am also attaching a permission in case you get stopped by police as we are still in phase 0.
I suggest you read the 3 page document from start to finish.
Here is the essential information summarized.
OLM once again celebrates Sunday Mass at 11:00.
Please follow our guidelines:
- A face mask is required to attend Mass.
- Gloves are not necessary, there will be available disinfecting gel at the entrance. Please use it.
- Wipe your shoes on the special disinfecting doormat at the entrance.
- Please enter by the main door only (on the corner of Mauricio Legendre and José Vasconcelos)
- Maintain social distancing (some pews will be roped off)
- Please receive Holy Communion in the hand (without a glove)
- The collection will be taken up at the end of Mass by the exit.
- The capacity of the church is limited to 30% currently, around 150 people.
- Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the number of your family members that are planning to attend on the upcoming Sunday.
- You are still dispensed from attending Sunday Mass. You are encouraged to pray with us as we will now livestream our Mass on Youtube.
- Confessions are best done by appointment (91-733-94-09) although a priest will strive to be available on Sundays before and after Mass in the parish offices. You must wear a face mask in confession.
- Please sign up for the newsletter to keep informed of future changes.
- Please smile, even though under a mask.
Please send me an email at email@example.com this week, before Saturday, with the number of family members that plan on attending. We must limit attendance to 150 people. I will update you during the week, especially if we get close to capacity.
Please read the attached documents and consult www.ourladyofmercy.info (it will be updated shortly with this and newer information).
Dewey called Dr. Mike Wilson’s office for an appointment.
“I’m sorry,” said the receptionist, “we can’t fit you in for at least two weeks.”
“But I could be dead by then!”
“No problem. If your wife lets us know, we’ll cancel the appointment.”
