Prayer before Communion:
Father in heaven, you have made us for yourself; our hearts are restless until they rest in you. Fulfill this longing through Jesus, the Bread of life, so that I may witness to him who alone satisfies the hungers of the human family. By the power of your Spirit lead us to the heavenly table where we may feast on the vision of your glory forever and ever. Lord Jesus, come into my heart, bless me, my family and all people. Amen.
Prayer after Communion:
Thank you, good and gracious Jesus, for coming to me. In spirit I humbly kneel before you. And, with burning soul I pray and beseech thee to fix deep in my heart, lively sentiments of faith, hope and charity. Grant me true contrition for my sins, and a firm purpose of amendment. While I contemplate with great love and tender pity thy five most precious wounds, pondering over them within me, and calling to mind the words that David, thy prophet said of thee, my Jesus, “They have pierced my hands and feet, they have numbered all my bones”. Jesus, I love you. Help me to be always faithful to you. Amen.
INDOOR MASS - GUIDE AND INSTRUCTIONS
Mass Attendance is now on a first come first served basis. Seating is available in the courtyard once indoor seating capacity has been met. You may also sit in the courtyard if you prefer.
If you like to follow along with the prayers at Mass, bring your own worship aids such as Magnificat or request your own copy of the current missalette, for a small donation from the parish office. There will not be missalettes or hymnals available in the pews. If you bring your own worship aids, be sure to take them home with you.
Wear a Face Covering
Guided by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), those over age 3 must wear a face covering that covers the nose and mouth. No one will be allowed to enter the church without a face covering.
Arriving at Church
Please arrive 20-30 minutes early to allow time to park and check in. Sign in is required and a sign in sheet will be made available. Allow time to park and check in if attending devotional prayers which begin 30 minutes before Mass.
Please promptly go to and from the church, as we must not gather before or after Mass.
Before entering the church sanitize your hands with the sanitizer provided by the parish; you must also stop for a temperature check. Those with a fever may not enter. Please wait to be seated.
Inside the church
No Holy Water
Holy water fonts remain empty for safety concerns. There will be no access to the statues, cross, etc.
Directed to seats
To ensure proper social distancing, ushers will escort parishioners to their seats. Seating has been re-configured to allow the 50% seating capacity and still maintain proper distancing. Please follow the directions of the ushers and do not sit outside the designated seating areas.
While seated, standing and walking, people who are not in the same household must remain 6 feet apart from each other.
Restrooms have re-opened for use. Please be sure to spray the touched areas before exiting the restroom and return the disinfectant spray to it's proper location.
There will be no presentation of the gifts. Collections will be taken as you enter the Church, not at the usual time.
The priest, Lectors and altar server (if any) will also keep 6 feet distance from each other.
Communion will be given at the proper time. An usher will call out pew by pew alternating from both sides. After receiving communion return to your seat.
Communion will be given only in the hand.
Approach the sanctuary wearing the face covering. Upon reaching the Priest (or Eucharistic Minister), remove the mask, place one hand under the other while keeping fingers together and receive the host. After consuming the host put on the mask again.
After Mass, those on the choir side will exit by the door on that side, and those on the ambo side will exit by the door there. For those sitting at the rear of the church may exit from the entrance door. There will be no socializing outside the church or inside.
Cleaning after Mass
The high touch areas of the church, including the pews will be sanitized after Mass. Since restrooms have reopened for use, the sanitizing crew will also include the restrooms in their sanitizing routine.
Those at Risk
Those who are sick, elderly, immune-compromised or otherwise at risk for COVID-19 should not attend Mass in person.
Until further notice, Bishop Barber continues to dispense the faithful from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and holy days.
For Holy Communion to the Sick and those at Risk or Holy Anointing, please call the parish office (510-223-1153) or call Fr. Dante at 510-325-0858 for an appointment.
