Achoo! Cold & Flu Protocols at Mass

It is cold and flu season. We want to halt the spread of diseases.

The Church of Saint Mary will be implementing its cold and flu protocols:

  • No cups. Holy Communion will be distributed in one form: the Body of Christ. The Precious Blood will not be distributed. Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion will be limited during this time.
  • No holding hands. During the Our Father, please limit holding hands to members of your family – or eliminate it completely.
  • No shaking hands. During the Sign of Peace, please bow or nod rather than shaking hands.

We will have cold and flu protocols in place for the next four weekends, then we will reevaluate.
