COVID Precautions

Guidelines for all Masses

1.
In line with Massachusetts requirements, church capacity is limited to 25% as well as 6-foot social distancing. All reservation numbers reflect this guideline.

2.
Pre-registration is required. You can find registration on our Worship In-Person page.

3.
Families and those who live together may occupy one pew. Single individuals will be distanced from each other by 6 feet. That means one large family, two smaller groups, or three singles can occupy one pew.

4.
We will utilize one entry way: front doors at Saint Bridget and the parking lot entrance closest to the front door at Our Lady of Fatima. Greeters will guide parishioners to their seats to avoid any congestion.

5.
Missalettes have been removed and there will be no congregational singing allowed until further notice. Mass will not begin with a procession nor will an offertory basket be passed. We continue to encourage online giving as a no-touch solution.

6.
All parishioners over the age of 5 are required to wear a mask during Mass, over both the nose and mouth.

7.
Temperatures of all volunteers must be taken before their shift at Mass.

8.
Per state and Archdiocese guidelines, when the case level reaches red in Maynard or Sudbury, all temperatures will be taken at the respective church. Currently, this applies to Saint Bridget.

9.
All seating is disinfected after each Mass.
