Masks for Clergy, Lay Liturgical Ministers, and the Congregation are optional. 

 

The Sign of Peace may once again be exchanged. Please note: According to the General Instruction of the Roman Missal (GIRM: 82): "it is appropriate that each person, in a reverent manner, offer the sign of peace (only) to those who are nearest. Please be aware that your neighbor in the pew may not yet be comfortable shaking hands. A bow of the head or small hand gesture is appropriate. (Flashing "peace signs" and arm waves are not.)

How to use the Hearing Loop

A Hearing Loop has been installed in the Church as a supplement to the speaker system for those who are hearing aid-dependent. The technology requires a hearing aid with a "t-coil" (which most hearing aids have built-in) as part of the hearing aid. In order to access the Loop, the hearing aid must be programmed for the "T" setting, which can be done by a hearing aid specialist. When in the Church, the user can go to the "T" setting on their device and will be connected to the speaker system via their hearing aid.
