May 15, 2020 Statement from Bishop Quinn Regarding Mass

The dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass remains in effect until further notice.

SIGNUP FOR WEEKEND MASSES:  Much thought has gone into how we can reopen our church in a safe way.  Due to the limitation of parishioners who can attend each mass and still keep our social distance, we will have SIGN UP FOR ALL WEEKEND MASSES until further notice. This is key to keeping everyone safe and not going over our number limitations, so please spread the word on this.  To signup, please click the orange "SignUp Genius" box to the left.

DO NOT COME TO MASS IF YOU FEEL UNWELL, OR HAVE FELT UNWELL IN THE PAST 14 DAYS. Even if you think it is only allergies, you could potentially put the health of your fellow parishioners, volunteer staff, and priests at risk if you come to Mass and don’t abide by this regulation.  Please keep in mind people are not obligated to attend mass on Sundays during the pandemic, and those over the age of 65 or with underlying conditions are strongly encouraged to stay home.  We will continue live streaming the 10:00 am Sunday mass on Facebook for those who feel safer at home.

Mass times will remain Saturday at 5:10 pm & Sunday at 10:00 am.    Please sign up by clicking on the orange "Signup Genius" picture above or you may call the parish office at 725-3804.   Please be sure to put the total number of people who will be attending from your household.  We may have to adjust during the coming weeks and months and we thank you for your patience.  Please spread the word to parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc!  There is no need to signup for weekday masses at this time.

 St. Olaf will have mass at 8:30 am on Sunday May 24th.

Social distancing must be followed and we must maintain 25% capacity. Therefore, we will have ushers seating you when you arrive.  Please be understanding if you do not get your "usual" spot and allow them to seat you.  There will be pews roped off to help with this.  Families may sit together in one pew, and also couples may sit together.  Individuals will be seated safely 6 feet away from anyone else.  As further developments unfold, we will continue to review and update through our website, Facebook, and in the church entryways.  Each family or individual person will be allowed to attend Mass once per weekend.   All attendees MUST sign up using the link above so we do not go over the allotted amount.  

We still plan to live-stream mass every Sunday at 10:00 a.m. on  the St. Mary's Caledonia Church and School Facebook page

You can also find masses for viewing on the Diocese of Winona-Rochester website.

Parish Office to Reopen

The St. Mary's Parish office is now open with hours of 9:00 am - 3:00 pm Monday through Friday with some restrictions.  We can allow one person into the office at a time.  If you see one person is being served, kindly wait outside until that person comes out to help keep each other safe.   Scrip cards can still be brought to you outside as in prior weeks if you prefer.

During this time, if you have any emergencies or concerns during hours when the parish office is closed please contact Father Stephen 725-4408 or Sister Michaeline 725-5516.  

The church doors will continue to be opened during the day for personal prayers.


 

Celebrating our graduates and all they have accomplished is important both for the students and all who have supported them.  Join Bishop Quinn in celebrating the Class of 2020 with the Diocese Baccalaureate Mass which was live-streamed from the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart.
