Message from Fr. Shofner regarding Masses this weekend
We are so grateful that we have been able to celebrate Masses at St. Anne's these past weeks, even if we've had to adapt a number of things we're used to. As we move forward in our celebration of the Holy Mass, here are a few notes to keep in mind regarding some important changes taking place:
1) We are no longer requiring online sign-ups prior to Mass. Our numbers have been manageable enough to ensure sufficient seating, even with appropriate distancing. However, we do ask that all those in attendance check in with our ushers when you arrive. Once the fall arrives, we may have to reinstate the sign-ups, since our Mass attendance traditionally increases in the fall.
2) In accordance with Governor Walz's statewide mask mandate beginning Saturday, July 25, we are asking that all in attendance at Masses wear a mask. Masks will be available at the entrances if you don't have one. There are exemptions for young children, those with anxiety, respiratory illness, or other physical or mental conditions that make wearing a mask difficult or impossible. Please be mindful of the mandate, as it helps to ensure the health and safety of you, your family and those around you, and may help to speed up our return to a normal celebration of the Mass. Thank you.
God bless you all as we enter into this hot weekend!
