Safe Gathering and Use of Our Buildings—Looking Ahead

Our staff is developing a COVID-19 Preparedness Plan to ensure the health and safety of all who may enter our building in the coming weeks.

We will be following the guidelines issued by Governor Walz and will communicate them in the weeks ahead.  Included (as of today) in this plan:

  • Infection prevention measures
  • Housekeeping protocols
  • Location of additional sanitizer/wipes stations
  • Social Distancing at worship
  • Protocols for entering and leaving the building/worship space
  • Respiratory etiquette
  • Worship Procedures (coming from the Archdiocese)
  • Distribution of handouts, Gather books, bulletins
  • Sunday Donuts and social distancing/sanitation
  • Nursery
  • Events/Funerals/Wedding protocols

Guidance is coming from the Archdiocese, State of Minnesota, CDC, and Minnesota Department of Health.  We are continually monitoring and updating our list of approved protocols.

As more information comes forth, we will change the list accordingly.  

We look forward to coming back to our spiritual home in a safe, healthy way and will make every effort to make returning a comfortable experience.
