New Town Instructions Due to COVID



Dear Parishioners

We have received a notice from the Wesley Hills town informing that our church belongs to COVID-19 yellow zone. Therefore, we are forced to follow the town instructions for COVID protocols. Accordingly we can allow only 25 persons inside the church for the mass. It is going to be effective from this coming Friday. Therefore please note the following arrangements from Friday on. 

1. This Friday and Saturday we will have two masses since it is rosary week. One mass at 6:00PM with rosary and benediction. The second mass is at 7:30PM with rosary and benediction. 

2. For Sunday we are going to increase the number of masses so that more people can attend in person. I will let you know the arrangements on Friday. 

Thank you,


Achan
