Please note the following taken directly from the Archdiocesan Guidelines.

“Those who are 65 and over and those with high-risk health conditions should remain at home.  This is the population that is most vulnerable to the Coronavirus.  Of course, those who are symptomatic or have tested positive for COVID-19 should not enter a Church until released to do so by their health care professional.”

“The dispensation from the obligation to participate at Mass on Sundays is extended in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis and throughout the State of Indiana until August 15, 2020”.  

If you are over 65 years old and decide to attend Mass, you will not be turned away but please consider your health risk.  The Sunday 10:00 am Mass will continue to be live-streamed on Facebook and later downloaded to YouTube for those who are not physically able to attend Mass.

Before, during, and after each Mass, there are many other guidelines and restrictions that will be communicated to you via the parish website and parish Facebook page. 

We are also in the process of determining future dates for those in the RCIA to enter the Church and for the celebration of the Sacraments of First Communion and Confirmation.
