A reminder: Weekend Masses will be held at St. Anthony Church, starting the weekend of July 4/5. There will be no Masses at St. Dominic School.
Our official capacity at St. Anthony’s is 100, but we will do our best to accommodate all who come for Mass on the weekend, most likely with a parallel Mass being celebrated in the Parish Hall by a second priest, if necessary.
The Sunday obligation remains abrogated by Bishop Paprocki for the foreseeable future. We webcast our 8am Sunday Mass on Facebook and Youtube. The “Mass for Shut-Ins” sponsored by the Quincy Knights of Columbus is broadcast on KHQA at 10:30am on Sunday. We earnestly ask those who show any symptoms of illness to please stay home. If you have a concern for yourself or the health of anyone in your household, we also ask that you stay home, as despite our best efforts, we cannot guarantee protection against COVID-19 or other illnesses in our community.
We ask all people in attendance to patiently and considerately follow the instructions of our ushers. We provide alcohol-based sanitizer at the doors and elsewhere and expect all to practice good hand-hygiene and by refraining from touching mouth, nose, eyes, and masks without afterwards re-sanitizing. Attendees are not required to wear facial coverings when social distancing is being practiced (a distance of more than 6 feet away from the nearest person not living in your family/household), but along with the diocese and other authorities, we do advise facial coverings when that distance cannot be maintained (such as when entering/exiting, and other times that distance cannot be maintained). Certainly, attendees may opt to wear masks or facial coverings at all times, if they so desire. We are not able to provide facial coverings, please bring your own.
We still have Pray Together missals available at the door for use at Mass. We also have June-July issues of “The Word Among Us” (another publication with the daily Mass readings) available as of this weekend. Please do not leave these worship aids in the church, as any left behind must be disposed of.
