Special Update on Lifting Restrictions

Our governor has lifted the masking and social distancing mandates for fully vaccinated individuals. We are grateful that virus cases in our area have been greatly reduced. At the same time, we are always concerned for the safety and well-being of all who enter our doors.
Much thought and prayer has gone into decisions that will affect those coming into our church. We ask that all parishioners care for one another in the spirit of Christian charity.
Unvaccinated are strongly encouraged to wear a mask and observe social distancing. This will be done on the honor system.
Fully vaccinated individuals have the option of not wearing masks or social distancing; however, if it is more comfortable to continue masking and social distance, we encourage you to do so. Those distributing Communion will be masked.
There will be a section with ribbons for those who feel more comfortable with this option. Seating in Fr. Scheg Center will continue to be available with livestream.
Ushers will be available to assist you with seating. Hand sanitizer will remain available.
Thank you ahead of time for all your cooperation!
If you have any concerns, please call the parish office at 732-842-3963.
Fr. Pat
