All who attend Masses or Services in the Cathedral are required to use a mask or face covering when they enter the Church. Masks are available in the Sacristy for those who do not have their own.
NEW ANNOUNCEMENT – August 9, 2020
Several parishioners expressed concerns about perceived inconsistencies in the Cathedral’s two meter seating distance regulation required for public spaces. As a result, our COVID-19 Safety Team has re-configured all the seating spaces in the Church and placed a ribbon across the entrances to every other pew so that these alternate pews will not be occupied during Mass. This should provide enough space between persons as required by the distancing regulations and further ensure the safety of all our parishioners.
Please note that the front pews on both sides must remain empty to ensure that proper distancing can be maintained as persons return to their places after receiving Holy Communion.
