Thursday May 27
Starting this coming Sunday May 30th we will be going back to the previous schedule with the 15% maximum occupancy. This will permit everybody to attend mass on Sunday and during the week. No sign up needed for weekday masses, but please do register for Sunday masses.
12:30pm + 1:45pm at Assumption
4pm + 5:15pm at St. Edmund's
Weekday Masses - all at Assumption
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday at 7:30 am
Thursday at 5:30 pm followed by exposition and benediction
Saturday at 8am
Today (May 27th) we will still have mass at 5:30pm. Registration is required for this mass.
Tomorrow (Friday 28th May) we will still have 2 masses one at 7:30am and one at 5:30 pm. No registration required
On Saturday May 29th we will still have 2 masses one at 8am and the other at 8:45 am - No registration required.
Thursday May 6th
The Holy Hour with Exposition and Benediction is cancelled today and for the foreseeable future.
Wednesday May 5th
All masses from now on will have only 15 people present at the most. Fr. Blust and I with the consent of Fr. Creurer and Fr. Mcgee have decided that the best course of action for the moment is to have as many masses as possible. We are blessed to have 2 priests and in these difficult times it is also a great privilege. But this unfortunately will not permit all of you to attend mass every Sunday under these new restrictions, in fact far from it.
Starting today there will be 6 Low Masses on Sundays. They will take place at
Assumption at noon, 1pm, and 2pm and at
St. Edmund's at 4pm, 4:50pm, and 5:40pm.
This sounds like a lot but it will only permit 84 people to attend Mass on Sundays. Therefore I ask all those who attend mass at the chaplaincy, as well as those that would like to come, to register through this website, but to please only register for one Sunday every 4 weeks. Anyone that cannot register will not be able to enter the church. This will be quite strict.
There will also be 2 masses daily during the week. They will take place from
Monday to Friday at 7:30am and 5:30pm at Assumption and on
Saturday at 8am and 8:45am at Assumption
Registration will be required for them also. Dear faithful, I again ask you to bear this added trial with patience. Like our Lord in the temple, our anger and indignation would be justified here, but unlike our Lord we do not have the authority, at the moment, to act. So let us be patient and pick up our cross which is now that much heavier.
Fr. Massimo Botta
P.S. this schedule is tentative and subject to change
Tuesday May 4th
New restrictions by our autocrats have been dictated which will begin tomorrow May 5th 2021. Only 15 people may attend any church service. We are in the middle of figuring out what is possible under these trying circumstances. For now we must cancel all registrations for this Sunday's Masses. Please be patient and keep checking this website in the following days for updates.
