We are celebrating Mass in Church!
Weekend Mass times are 5 pm Saturday, and 8 am, 10:30 am and 5 pm Mass on Sundays.You can also watch Mass live on Facebook (facebook.com/mqpwg) at 8 am Sunday mornings. You do not need a Facebook account to watch.
We received this guidance from the Archdiocese of St. Louis regarding COVID-19 guidelines as it applies to mask wearing and social distancing:
The mask mandate now only applies to all parish faithful who have not received a vaccination against the COVID-19 virus. Following the CDC guidance issued (Friday), capacity restrictions and social-distancing measures at archdiocesan parishes will be determined by the parish pastor based on the size and construct of the parish, and what he deems is needed to provide for the safest possible environment. These changes in guidance are effective immediately; however, the timeline for implementation in each parish will be determined by the pastor based on specific needs to make a safe and appropriate transition. Changes should be implemented at all parishes no later than Sunday, May 23.
Archbishop Mitchell Rozanski leaves in place the dispensation for Sunday Mass at this time, but will be re-evaluating the need for the dispensation in the coming weeks.
Because the guidelines addressing church and school are different, and in order to promote consistency between the two as much as we can, the following will be in effect through the end of the school year (May 28th):
In church, masks should be worn by those who are not fully vaccinated, and we will continue to promote social distancing. Those who have been fully vaccinated do not need to wear masks.
In school, masks should be worn by everyone (because our students and a few of our staff are not fully vaccinated) and we will continue to promote social distancing.
Please continue to exercise personal responsibility. Please continue to follow proper precautions as outlined by the CDC and the St. Louis County Department of Health.
We will continue to re-evaluate our protocol as we continue to receive additional guidance from the CDC, the St. Louis County Department of Public Health and the Archdiocese of St. Louis.
