Celebrating our faith together -- preparing for a full re-opening this weekend!
Dear Saint Clement Parish Family,
We are excited that after 14 months of reservations, social distancing and limited capacity, this weekend we can prepare to welcome you, our members, to Saint Clement the way we always did before the pandemic.
As our state and city anticipate entering Phase 5 this Friday, June 11, we will continue to follow the governmental regulations around COVID-19.
Once we're in Phase 5, our Sunday Mass attendance limits will be lifted, and we will be at 100% capacity! You won't have to register, and you'll be able to sit wherever you’d like!
You are encouraged to take part in Mass by singing our wonderful hymns. Our vaccinated members and guests won’t have to wear a mask. We ask those who are not vaccinated to please wear a mask for their safety and the safety of others. Please note, we have hand sanitizer stands available for all to use as needed.
For those who don’t feel comfortable to fully jump in, I offer a few suggestions:
- Wear a mask; we want everyone to feel comfortable and safe and for many of us the use of a mask will continue to be a choice.
- Choose less crowded Masses like 8:00 a.m. on Sunday or weekday Masses that bring only 20-30 people to our Church.
- Remember that as a parish we made a substantial investment to our airflow, therefore the church, chapel and the school have continual air purification and flow.
Let’s make this weekend special! For the first time since March of 2020 we can anticipate opening our church to all, so please consider joining us and invite your fellow parishioners and friends to join us! Let’s fill up our church with joy, faith and community that are the hallmarks of Saint Clement so together we can grow as people of belonging, praying, learning, serving and giving!
Grateful for your kindness and support,
Fr. Peter Wojcik, Pastor
