Dear Lourdes Parishioners—

We are so enjoying welcoming a larger number of you back to the pews! In preparation for the opening of limited public Masses at Our Lady of Lourdes, please read the following information so that you know how to register to attend for a Mass, what to expect when you arrive, and how you can best help out to make this as safe and accessible to everyone. Please bear in mind that information is subject to change as the Archdiocese and state authorities provide additional guidance.

REGISTERING TO ATTEND MASS

  • We will be able to welcome 100 people into the church for each Mass (which will be inclusive of everyone in the church, including lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, etc.). This attendance number has changed from earlier plans as we received further guidance from the state public health department in recent days.
  • We will have three Sunday Masses (10 AM, noon, and 6 PM, MST), and weekday Masses, Wednesday through Friday at 8 AM, MST, to begin. We anticipate adding a Saturday Vigil Mass later this summer.
  • Tuesday Masses will be reserved for those who are 65 and older.
  • In order to attend Mass on Sunday, you MUST register ahead of time. No walk-ins will be accommodated.
  • Sign up for Mass through this online form. Please include yourself and each person who will be in attendance with you, so we do not exceed our maximum capacity. Please call the parish office at 303.722.6861 with any registration questions.
  • You will not be able to register for more than one (1) Sunday Mass at a time. We want to give everyone who wishes to attend Mass the opportunity to do so as soon as possible. As such, as we work to give everyone access, you may only be able to attend one or two Masses per month in the near future.
  • A dispensation from the Sunday Mass and Holy Day obligation remains in effect until further notice.
  • Please note: we will still be offering outdoor Communion (via car line) on Sundays from 12–1 PM, following the livestreamed Mass at 10 AM.

SAFETY REQUIREMENTS

  • *Everyone* will be required to wear a face mask while in attendance at Mass. Any children under the age of 2 will be exempt from this requirement.
  • It is strongly recommended that anyone who has a higher risk of severe illness due to COVID-19 (65 years and older, chronic lung disease, serious heart conditions, immunocompromised, diabetes, liver disease, cancer or chemotherapy, chronic kidney disease, etc.) refrain from attending a public Mass and instead participate in the 10 AM livestream Sunday Mass.
  • It is of the utmost importance that you help us maintain 6 feet of distance between you and other parties both while entering and exiting the church while sitting in designated pews, and while processing in the Communion line. If you are with your family, you can stand and sit in closer proximity, but your family must remain 6 feet away from all other attendees.
  • Bathrooms will only be available for emergencies, so please plan accordingly.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available at the doors and we encourage its frequent use.
  • Please step six feet away before you remove your mask to receive Communion, and receive BY HAND, ONLY. Thank you for respecting those around you.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT MASS

  • Register for Mass ahead of time.
  • Arrive 15 minutes early for Mass to get checked in and find a seat.
  • A number of pews have been roped off to help facilitate appropriate distancing between people. Please seat yourself and your family at least 6 feet away from other groups (members of the same family unit do not need to be distanced within their group).
  • There will be clearly labeled entry and exit doors, and we ask that you closely follow the established flow of traffic.
  • Allow 6 feet of separation between you and other attendees as you enter and exit the church.
  • No food or drinks will be allowed in the church.
  • No worship aids will be available in the church (missals, song sheets, etc.). Feel free to bring your own Bible or missal, but please keep it with you.
  • We will not be passing an offertory basket at this time, to limit the amount of physical contact between parishioners and support staff. You can still send a check to the parish office with your weekly offertory, or you can sign up for online donations at lourdesdenver.org.
  • Following Mass, please disperse promptly. We will not be able to congregate in groups to socialize and catch up before or after Mass. This will also help give the maintenance staff the time they need to sanitize everything thoroughly in between Masses.
