May 23 & 24 Masses
!!! YES !!! The variance submitted by the Fremont County Commissioners and Department of Public Health to relax the current "Safer At Home" order has been approved by the State of Colorado Governor's Office. It will be effective here at St. Michael beginning May 23 and 24 at 4:30 p.m. & 9:00 a.m. PLEASE READ the new updates to the Liturgical Guidelines on this home page. There are a few important changes.
We will be able to accommodate anyone who wishes to attend Mass on Saturday and Sunday until we reach capacity. We estimate this to be approximately up to 85 people in the congregational pews where parishioners normally sit plus 30 people in the Gathering Space. Due to the difficulty of sanitizing our worship spaces between liturgies, we have removed the missals/hymnals from our worship spaces. Parishioners are invited to bring their own missal and prayer books. Confessions will be heard in the Main Sanctuary at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 16. Please bring a mask to wear during confession.
Please remember the General Dispensation from the Sunday Mass Obligation by Bishop Stephen Berg remains in effect until further notice. We will continue to live stream both Saturday and Sunday Mass on our Facebook page. Even with best practices, the risk of infection exists anytime a person leaves their house. Anyone in a higher risk category, or showing any symptoms of illness, should please stay home.
Daily Mass began on Tuesday, May 19 (through Friday) at 8:00 a.m. which is currently held in the Main Church. Because of the extraordinary circumstance in which we find ourselves and because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are suspending Communion Services on Monday mornings.
We will continue to post updates on this process as the new information becomes available.
