NOTES ON COVID– 19

Face Mask -Social Distance

 

Gov. Kay Ivey updated Alabama’s health order today as the state transitions to “Safer Apart.”

The “Safer Apart” order ends May 5, 2021 at 5p.m.

“We’re still under a public health order but it’s greatly slimmed down,” Ivey said. The order does not close or limit any businesses, school or church but recommends people to use “common sense,” she added.

It does “strongly encourage” personal responsibility to slow the spread of COVID-19. Included are recommendations to maintain 6 feet of separation, staying home if sick and washing hands frequently. It also “strongly encourages” people to wear masks, even though the state’s order requiring facial coverings will be allowed to expire Friday, April 9 at 5p.m.


                                                              April 21, 2021 

Dear Brothers and Sisters in the Lord, 

Archbishop Rodi has updated Covid-19 provisions for churches in the Archdiocese. Since so many parishioners are knowledgeable about Covid-19 and so many have been vaccinated, it may be an appropriate time to give greater latitude regarding participating at Mass. Therefore, these new provision are now effective in the Archdiocese of Mobile: First, the following are required in all churches:

 · Masks are urged for all attending Mass. 

· All liturgical ministers and ushers are to wear masks unless speaking to the congregation.

· Anyone distributing Holy Communion is to sanitize their hands and wear masks. 

· Hand sanitizer is to be readily available in all churches. 

Second, the following provisions are approved, however, pastors may adapt the following provisions due to local circumstances: (We will proceed with these recommendations in our churches) 

· Hymnals may be returned to pews. 

· Bulletins may be distributed. 

· Offertory collection by passing baskets 

· Offertory procession may be resumed. 

· Holy Water may be returned to church fonts. 

· Choirs may resume but the number of participants is to be limited. Face masks or shields are to be used by the choir when they are not socially distanced. 

· Congregational singing no longer needs to be limited. 

· Extra cleaning or sanitizing of pews is no longer required. 

 

  • Do not come to Church if you are feeling sick.
  • Sanitize your hands at entering and exiting the Church.
  • The use of face mask its HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

 

Let’s keep everyone safe.

"The family idea is dear to God and to the Church ... I declare that I recognize the value of a family spirit, of a family working in the Church, of a family that with ardor will take these words from our dear Lord’s lips: ‘Going, therefore, teach ye all nations: baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.'"

 

- Fr. Thomas Augustine Judge,  Founder of St. Patrick School and 3rd Pastor of St. Patrick Church


 

 

God so loved the world that he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him might not perish
but might have eternal life.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world,
but that the world might be saved through him.
Whoever believes in him will not be condemned,
but whoever does not believe has already been condemned,
because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. 

                                

                                                                         JN 3:16-18
