Statement from Archbishop Rodi
March 15, 2021: Archbishop Rodi sent a letter to all the Priests in the Archdiocese announcing changes in regulation, implemented at the discretion of the pastor.
For the celebration of Mass and other liturgies, at least half of the church is to have social distancing seating. This means that every other pew remains corded off. People in this section of the church are to maintain social distancing from those who are not members of their household. (Right Side of Sanctuary)
The other side (Left Side) may be open seating without any pews being roped off or social distancing. It is hoped only those who are fully vaccinated will sit in these pews.
Regarless of where people choose to sit, masks are expected. At Holy Spirit Parish, masks are still highly encouraged when moving around the parish.
Maskes are required at the Sunday 9:30am Mass.
To read Archbiships letter, visit www.mobarch.org
ALL parishioners are to wear a mask or face covering. Be aware of others and 6 foot social distancing.
+ Monday - Saturday 8:15am
+ Monday - Thursday 6:30pm
+ Saturday Vigil 5:30pm
+ Sunday 8am, 9:30am, 11am, 3pm (spanish) and 5:30pm
+ The Sanctuary is sanitized after each Mass, daily and weekend.
+ There is hand sanitizer available at the entrance of the Narthax and Sanctuary.
+ Missalettes are not available in the pews. Handouts are available at all weekend Masses which include the readings and music verses. These sheets are to be discarded after each Mass.
+ We are using every other pew due to social distancing guidelines, so please sit in the non-roped pews and 6ft from those not in your own family. Please move to the center of the isle so others do not have to climb over you.

As we continue to seek ways to establish a new normal, consider using a personal missalette for both liturgical and personal prayer. Missalettes are removed from our pew which limits parishioners from participating in the liturgy. We encourage you to adopt the habit of using a personal missalette for both liturgy and personal prayer.
We recommend Magnificat and The Word Among Us. Both are monthly publications designed for daily use. It can be used to follow the Mass and assist in personal prayer. Choose the edition which is best for you.
The Generation of Faith - Endowing Our Future with Hope campaign aims to raise funds to strengthen the Church and fund endowments that will support seminarian formation, priest retirement, and youth ministry at the local parish level. For more information or to make a pledge, Click Here.
