Effective Monday, December 13, 2021: Due to a new New York State mask mandate, masks will now be required for all liturgy participants. The exception to this rule will be clergy/liturgical ministers when fulfilling their speaking roles.
As previously, please note the following passage from a Diocese of Buffalo document:
If a person does not feel well, has a temperature greater than or equal to
100°, or is experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19, they should
stay home and seek medical attention.
When present in church, all participants should:
— Exercise coughing/sneezing etiquette;
— Limit what they touch;
— Limit personal contact such as hugging and hand shaking
— Wash hands properly and often.
