Here are a few important notices: Bishop McClory has directed that all Masses taking place in the month of May, starting May 11, be by invitation only, not open to the public at large, with strict 6 feet social distancing. Only on June 1 can Masses be truly open, provided that social distancing norms are followed. Our Lady of Grace Church can accommodate as a maximum number only 179 people until June 12. That number is insufficient to cover normal weekend Mass crowds and would lead to people being turned away if occupancy is full.
OLG Church will reopen for public Masses on the weekend of Saturday June 13 –Sunday June 14. Due to social distancing regulations corresponding to each stage of reopening in Indiana, it is not feasible for us to reopen before that time. The norms for stage four, beginning June 12, allow for 257 people as maximum attendance for the OLG church building. That number will accommodate our normal weekend Mass crowds for our parish. To begin with, our Mass schedule may be altered somewhat as we seek to become accustomed to having public Masses again. We might begin with only three scheduled Masses at first, for example.
I ask for your patience as we all have to wait until we can reopen on June 13-14. As a reminder, Bishop McClory has dispensed all of the faithful from their obligation to attend Sunday Mass until August 15. If anyone should be concerned about coming to Mass at this time, all of us are dispensed from the obligation until August 15.
Weekday Mass at OLG will resume on June 1, Monday through Friday, at 8:30am, following social distance norms. Weekday Mass will be in the church, not the chapel, until further notice. Saturday morning weekday Mass will resume at a later date.
