Ss. Anthony and Philip Parish
726 Main Street
In accordance with the Diocese of Madison
we will return to the following practices.
-Holy water will be available at church entrances.
-There will be no capacity limits at church.
(outside of Christmas/Easter we are far below capacity on every weekend)
-For those vaccinated, there is no requirement for masks or distancing.
-As per CDC guidelines, those not vaccinated are encouraged to mask and
distance; some pews will remain blocked for distancing. Anyone is
welcomed to continue wearing a mask if you are more comfortable.
-Congregational singing will return. Our Psalm response, Alleluia, and the
Eucharistic acclamations of Holy, Holy, Memorial and Great Amen are theologically the most important for musical participation as you are invited
into this prayer. Books with our hymns will return at a later date.
-Sign of peace will continue non-contact with a bow or other greeting.
We hope you will feel comfortable returning to mass. If you are in a higher risk category or have symptoms, it’s understandable that you remain at home.
Let us rejoice in the Lord!
Fr. Jim Murphy and the Pastoral Council
