Parish Update (Wednesday, May 6, 2020)
When Will We Have Mass Again?
The Archdiocese of Milwaukee has informed us that we can continue with Mass starting Sunday, May 31st with certain guidelines and restrictions to protect health and safety. The following is the plan of action to provide outdoor Masses to our parishioners (subject to change):
8:00 a.m. at St. Michael's in the back parking lot
10:00 a.m. at Holy Trinity in the field South of Holy Trinity School
Due to the restrictions of how many people can be in one building at a time (attendance at each individual Mass is limited to no more than 25 percent of the Church’s Occupancy Permit), the decision was to provide outdoor Masses (rain or shine).
Additional restrictions and guidelines:
The obligation to attend Sunday Mass is dispensed through Sunday, July 5.
If you show any signs of fever or flu-like symptoms, please remain at home.
Social distancing of a minimum of 6 feet between people not living in the same household must be followed.
Missals, Bibles, prayer cards or other paper resources (e.g., bulletins, printouts with readings/songs) will NOT be available. If you would like to follow along with the readings, please provide your own resources.
You will need to provide your own lawn chair.
The parish bulletin will be published online - unfortunately, there will be NO paper copies available for parishioners.
If you would like to receive notifications on your smartphone, please visit our website for information how to download the app (make sure you turn on your notifications).
What About St. Matthias 6:00 p.m. Mass?
Given the Covid-19 directives of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, which reflect the restrictions
enforced by the State of Wisconsin, we would be limited to the amount of people at St.
Matthias Masses this summer. Furthermore, most of our celebrants are senior priests, who are
more susceptible to contract the coronavirus.
In light of these and other considerations, we have decided to cancel the 6:00 p.m. summer Masses at St. Matthias.
Let us pray that we will be able to return to summer evening Masses at St. Matthias next year.
Tithing and Second Collections
There will be an offertory collection at both Masses, however we strongly encourage you to consider donating online through WeShare.
There will be NO Second Collections, you can place your 2nd collection envelope during the offertory collection. Again, consider donating online for any of the 2nd collections.
