COVID-19 Updated Guidelines for Parishes – September 22, 2021 – Diocese of Buffalo
As we move forward we want to provide an environment where everyone is safe and feels safe. Over the next two weeks we will be implementing the following guidelines.
- Masks are now mandated for all participants in the liturgy, for entry, exit and when receiving Holy Communion. When seated, participants may “relax their mask” if they feel comfortable to do so.
- As before, masks are required for those distributing Eucharist.
- Overall singing should be limited.
- When present in church, all participants should:
- Limit what they touch
- Limit personal contact such as hugging and hand shaking
Thank you in advance for your cooperation with making our liturgical celebration a safe and prayerful environment for everyone.
