St Elizabeth of the Trinity Parish 2020 Annual Collection
September 23, 2020
The last six months have presented unique and unprecedented challenges for our families, nation and parish community, in the form of the COVID-19 pandemic. None of us were prepared for the swift and dramatic change the nationwide lockdown would bring, as well as the hardships it would place on everyday life and our ability to practice the faith. However, God is always with us, and by His grace we have been able to continue celebrating mass both virtually and in small gatherings, adhering to all of the required precautions. We have reached a point where churches have been allowed to re-open, with various stipulations. Despite this, many of our parishioners will remain at home, as they may have underlying conditions or are at the age where contracting COVID-19 would be a serious health concern. As a parish, we promise to continue ministering to all of our parishioner's spiritual needs. This is a time where we must come together and share our love of the Lord with all of His people.

Returning to Daily Mass
We have begun the celebration of weekday Masses.
There will be a maximum of 100 people allowed in our church. All people must wear masks; must bring their own sanitizers; and must keep the six feet social distance. Communion will distributed in the hand only. To receive Communion, come up the aisle in a single line, and maintain the distance. Please extend your hands so that our priest can drop the host into your hands, then step to the side, lower your mask, consume the host, replace your mask, and return to your seat by the side aisles. Always walk in a single line and maintain the distance.
Everyone must leave at the conclusion of the Mass. There can be no socializing in the church or in the parking lot. There can be no gathering for the rosary. No one can be in the sacristy before or after Mass. The priest will be alone at the altar without ministers or lectors. The only door that will be opened will be the parking lot door on the left. We pray for a rapid end to this pandemic and that we can return to normal as soon as possible. Be assured of our daily prayers for all of you.
