Extension of these parish office/ministry restrictions:
Bishop Rojas has authorized the further extension of these parish office/ministry restrictions for an additional 2 weeks through MARCH 1st, 2021. This is due to the increased public contacts and parish activity during Ash Wednesday services and Lenten schedules. Our hope is that things will improve by March 1st, and that we can add office/ministry services for our people. Procedures for added services will be sent to you before March 1st.
The following are the parish office/ministry restrictions that will continue through MARCH 1st:
Close ALL parish offices, allowing bare minimum of critical staff only (maximum of 3 persons), to work on-site, and only for tasks that cannot be completed remotely. Various staff can be staggered throughout the week.
Cancel ALL in-person meetings of ANY type and of ANY number (parish staff; clergy/deacons; all parish committees; all training sessions), including meetings of ministry services, ministry programs, etc. The permission for meetings of up to ten (10) persons is rescinded and prohibited until further notice. You should conduct any and all types of meetings by ZOOM or other remote technologies.
Conduct all parish business, ministry coordination remotely – via Zoom or other remote communication.
Food pantry distribution, a critical social justice service, is also permitted in accordance with previously distributed COVID 19 guidelines.
Seasonal projects such as charitable collection and distribution, special donations and fund-raisers may continue, but only if operated OUTDOORS, via drive-thru or pick-up ONLY, and only if staff/volunteers follow rigid COVID precautions. (masks; sanitizing; temperature taking; gloves; distancing, etc.) This applies to any Lenten fish fry dinners and Stations of the Cross soup suppers. You CANNOT host these inside the parish hall; all items must only be prepared for parishioners to take the items to their homes.
