GUIDELINES FOR THE CELEBRATION OF LITURGIES IN OUR CHURCHES

The State of New York, following recommendations from the CDC, lower rates of infection and higher numbers of people being vaccinated against COVID-19, has relaxed many of the restrictions which were in place. Because of that, with the pastoral care of the people of Brooklyn and Queens in mind, Bishop DiMarzio issued the following guidelines:

Our Churches are open to full 100% capacity.

Hand sanitizer is still required.  Sanitizer stations are at the entrance of the church.


Masks are strongly recommended because not everyone in Church will have been vaccinated.
Hymnals and missalettes can once again be used.
For safety and proper hygiene, the Precious Blood of Christ may not be administered to the congregation.

 
Properly trained Parishioners (Readers) may resume proclaiming the Sacred Scriptural Readings at Mass, and (Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion) may distribute Communion at Mass as required by the Pastor, and make homebound visits with permission of the Communicant.
Holy water fonts should not be filled as yet.
 
Thank you all for your patience during the past year.

Father Lambert asks you to spend a few minutes viewing a short film entitled The Veil Removed located at 
TheVeilRemoved.com .

This 7-minute video is beautifully made and performed taking you into the true mystery of the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.  Having viewed it several times, I find myself yearning more and more for Whom we often take for granted - Christ Jesus.
Give it a view, pass it on to your family and friends, and reflect on that precious Gift we long to have by an Act of Spiritual Communion.

God's infinite love and grace will get us through this crisis!

 

Please Pray for Pope Francis
