Greetings from St. Norbert's Church.
July, for us, a month of Sacraments. We celebrate the Sacraments of First Reconciliation, First Communion and Confirmation under Covid-19 protocol.
Stage 2 Reopening of the Church.
The church is open subject to a capacity of 25%, ie., 85 seats which is maximum of St. Norbert's with 6 feet distance. We would like to administer the Sacraments in the month of July, in case, there happen to be new variants. We are planning to call candidates individually to set the schedule.
Seating is on First Come, First Served basis. Once the church is full to capacity, I would encourage you to take seats in the Parish Hall where you can attend Mass live stream and receive Communion.
First Reconciliation and First Communion
Saturday, July 10 and 17: 1.30 pm, 3.00 pm, and 6.30 pm accommodating 10 candidates and 6 family members each per session.
Friday July 16 and 23: 5.00 pm, 6.30 pm, and 8.00 pm accommodating 14 candidates and 4 family members each per session.
Thank you and God Bless
