Maintain Social Distancing:
Volunteers will assist attendees through check-in, usher them to a pew, release them for communion and at close of Mass.
Upon entering St Joseph and St Mary through open doors, Mass attendees register with their name and bring their confirmation, or bring in a completed registration form.
Communion is distributed only by presiding priest and deacon who are wearing a mask and have sanitized hands. Single file communion line is maintained with social distancing.
After all attendees have exited, volunteers sanitize all pews, kneelers and bathrooms used by attendees.
