the Church and Covid 19

Sunday Mass will reopen to the public beginning the weekend of May 23-24, 2020. Archbishop Gustavo’s dispensation of all Catholics from the obligation to participate in the Mass on Sundays and other holy days of obligation granted on March 13, 2020 remains in effect until repealed. Archbishop strongly encourages the elderly and at risk populations to stay home and participate in Mass by means of Catholic Television or parish live streaming.  

 

Specific guidelines can be found on the  document from the Archdiocese linked below. Please read the entire document and familiarize yourself with all of the rules and guidelines. 


You will be allowed to enter the church ONLY through the front entrance. Side doors will remain unlocked during mass for emergency exit only. You must use social distancing when entering and exiting the church. Please come early if at all possible. Ushers will be assisting and guiding people to their assigned seat. Masks are mandatory. If you forget your mask we will have some available in the church. Sanitizers will be available as well. You are to use the hand sanitizers when entering and exiting the church. Much like Holy Water!! The Ushers will guide you through the process BUT each and every one of you need to read the guidelines. This is for your safety as well as the safety of others. 


As conditions change and with each new phase of reopening the church occurs, we will strive to keep everyone aware of all changes as they happen. We are very excited to be able to worship in church once again. But we cannot let our guard down. If you are not feeling well by all means please do not come to church. Use good judgement. Let us help each other to keep our Parish and our community Corona Free!!!!


Missalettes will NOT be available in the pews.

We will be following the executive orders of civic authorities and the directives of the Archdiocese of San Antonio. The number of persons allowed to enter the church for Mass is limited to that number which can maintain appropriate social distancing. We believe we can accommodate between 100 to 125 people per mass. We will have reserved seating. If you want to attend Mass you will have to reserve a spot. Seating will be assigned according to how many seats you reserve. The Seating Chart will be posted the Friday before the weekend Mass. 

 

You can reserve your seat by selecting one of the following options:

Call the Church Office  -- 830-484-3302
 

Email the Church Office -- bless@gvec.net
 

Text to Laurie Lipscomb -- 830-534-3050
 

Facebook Messenger to Laurie Lipscomb

 

We will need your name, the number of people in your party and which mass you will be attending. We will need this by Thursday of every week to allow us enough time to complete the seating chart.  


Cry Room and Choir Loft Reservations

 The Cry Room will be designated “One Family Only”. The Choir Loft will be reserved for Choir Members only. Social Distancing must be observed. We will only have one Lector per Mass and one Altar Server per Mass.

It is with great pride that Father would like to report that the generosity of his parishioners far outweighs any negative downfall that might have happened to our donations during the closure of our church. He beams with pride when he thinks about how your generous hearts never forgot about God and the church. 


Your generosity and thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated and may God bless all of you abundantly.
