Important Message from the Pastor (5/27/2020)
When permission is formally received, parishes within the Diocese of Camden will be attempting a Phase 1 partial and gradual reopening of houses of worship for the public celebration of the Eucharist. Restrictions governing this effort are informed by the requirements of the State of New Jersey, recommendations of the CDC and directives from the Office of the Bishop.
The purpose of these guidelines is to create a climate of health and safety for the gathered faithful. It is my hope that the full compliance of all will allow for the step- by-step lessening of these regulations in the weeks ahead. See below for these guidelines.
Persons who are at high risk of contracting COVID-19, the elderly and families with young children (under 7) are encouraged to remain at home. The dispensation of the faithful from the obligation to attend Mass on Sunday remains in effect throughout Phase 1 of the progressive reopening of parishes in our Diocese.
In advance, I thank you for your cooperation and understanding during these challenging times.
