PERPETUAL ADORATION – NEW GUIDELINES
The following is information regarding Perpetual Adoration at St. Mary Church of All Saints Parish, which has resumed, but with some restrictions. Those restrictions include the need for social distancing between adorers who are not of the same household, and the use of face masks – at least upon entering for and leaving from Adoration. (Once in an area at least 6 feet from other adorers, you may lower your mask.) As at St. Anne Church, pews are marked off with plastic ribbon-tape to designate spaces available for adorers. Occupancy of the Adoration Chapel is limited to the available designated areas. Do not move the tape, it is there to insure appropriate social distancing. Couples and families may sit together if the available open space will accommodate them. There are 13 available open spaces, many of which allow multiple people from the same household to sit together. BEFORE LEAVING, THE ADORERS THEMSELVES MUST SANITIZE THE AREAS THEY SAT IN AND ITEMS THEY TOUCHED (e.g. the restroom). (Sanitation materials and instructions are provided.)
We welcome everyone to come to the Adoration Chapel of St. Mary, but if you are not able or are not willing to follow and abide by the restrictions which are in place for everyone’s protection, please do not come to the Adoration Chapel at this time.
As before the suspension due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Miller Street entrance (including the elevator) is open from 7:00 am – 8:00 pm seven days a week. For security reasons the doors will be locked from 8:00 pm – 7:00 am, and access is limited only to adorers who have committed to those overnight hours. (Please note, if coming to adore between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm, the Blessed Sacrament will still be there, but may not be exposed.)
Because we need to wear masks when attending Mass, here is a link from the CDC with a few different directions on how you can make your own mask if you are in need of one (or two, or more…).
