SAFE ENVIRONMENT AT PARISH FACILITIES - FULLY VACCINATED

Cardinal Collins coat of arms

(Excerpt from the letter of Cardinal Collins)
"We must also maintain a safe working environment. Clergy, staff and volunteers have the greatest person-to-person interaction in parish/office settings and thus, a heightened risk for transmission of Covid-19. To ensure a safe workplace and to welcome the faithful with an additional level of health and safety, on a temporary basis, we are asking that clergy, staff and volunteers be fully vaccinated or be subject to regular rapid tests."

WELCOME BACK TO CHURCH

Jesus hugging a person

The Church is open for you to come for private prayer or community prayer.

As COVID-19 cases decline and the number of people who've gotten the vaccine increases, it is an opportunity for us see each other in person and pray together.

SAFETY is still the priority. If you are grieving, isolated, or still fearful, we keep you close to our heart. We connect in Live stream Masses that are available through our website.

Pastor, St. Norbert's Church
