COVID 19 Protocol Updates: May 14, 2021
The Bishop will be making significant changes to our diocese’s pandemic protocols for parish events and liturgies that will take effect later this month.
Although restrictions are being removed at the diocesan level, pastors have the authority and the Bishop’s support to retain any of the past protocols if they deem them to be in the interest of the health and safety of their parishioners. Updates for St. Marcus and St. Lawrence will be made available May 23rd. (click link here)

Please review Fr Joe's updated announcement, as well as our Reopening for Mass Plan that are available below. If you are not ready to return to Mass yet, all Catholics are still dispensed from their obligation to attend Mass until further notice.
