Dear friends at St. Luke,
With gratitude to God, after two months of Eucharistic fasting, we are pleased to announce that we will resume public Masses at St. Luke Church on the Feast of the Most Holy Trinity.
Saturday, June 6th, 2020: 5:00pm
Sunday, June 7th, 2020: 7:30am, 9:00am and 10:30am (NO 5:00pm Sunday Mass)
Those who are at risk of COVID-19 or have pre-existing health conditions or are manifesting COVID-19 symptoms (especially fever, cough or difficulty breathing) should still stay at home. You are dispensed from the obligation of attending Sunday Mass. Please continue participating in the televised or live stream Sunday Mass.
Before heading off to St. Luke's, please take note of the following:
1. As directed by the County Medical Officer, for contact tracing purposes, you will need to fill out and sign a Consent Form. One person can do it for the whole household. This form is kept for 45 days and then discarded. Consent Forms will be placed at the entrance of the church. Please bring your own pens. Or, you can download and print the form (click here) and bring it to church when you come to Mass.
2. To ensure proper distancing, some church pews have been taped off. Thus, no more than 80 parishioners can be accommodated inside the church. It is important for you to sign up (click here) and indicate the number of people attending.
3. Families can sit together.
4. You are required to wear your face mask at all times while in church. Please bring your personal sanitizers as well.
5. Communion will be distributed after the dismissal part of the Mass.
6. Mindful of others’ welfare and for health reasons, receive Holy Communion in the hand. Those who will receive by the tongue will be last in the line.
7. If you wish to receive Holy Communion please adhere to the 6ft distancing indicated by the yellow tape markers on the floor. After receiving communion, follow the arrow. Exit will be through the chapel door or through the Classroom 4 door (depending on your section).
8. Only one person can use the bathroom at a time.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. Trusting in God’s guidance and protection, we look forward to reopening the church for public Masses and gather together in the Eucharistic Feast of our Lord as one St. Luke parish community.
