Ss. Anthony and Philip Parish
726 Main Street
We are open for mass. Our numbers are well within the 50% of seating capacity as required by the Diocese. Normal weekend attendance is below 50% capacity. We do encourage you to be cautious about your interaction with others, especially for those in increased risk categories because of health condition or age. We will continue to pray for each other for protection from COVID-19 virus.

With all changes in this period, it is an effort to balance safety with a return to public gathering.
We ask for your cooperation in the following for the safety of others.
1. Mass on Facebook will continue
2.Weekday mass where there is a small gathering may be a better choice for some.
According to Diocesan guidelines, the following are “encouraged to remain at home”:
1.Those at elevated risk due to health or age
2. All who have any symptoms of illness
3.All who have contact with a COVID-19 positive patient
Those attending will agree to the following Diocesan Guidelines:
1. Six foot physical distancing during, entering, leaving, seating and communion procession
2. Seating will be available only in every other pew
3. Masks are “required” for use by everyone (Please bring your own mask.)
4. There will be no congregational singing
5. There will be no sign of peace
6. Envelopes and donations will be left in a basket in the gathering space
If you choose and feel it is not an unreasonable health risk, you may receive communion.
