Safe Gathering and Use of Our Buildings—Looking Ahead

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

The St. Pascal parish COVID-19 Preparedness Plan follows the guidelines issued by Governor Walz and are updated as necessary.  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

We are continually monitoring and updating our list of approved protocols as we receive information from the Archdiocese, State of Minnesota, CDC, and Minnesota Department of Health.

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.

St. Pascal's Day-to-Day

About Meetings...

Due to increasing concerns over the spread of COVID-19, St. Pascal's is scheduling onsite meetings on as-needed basis and only if the meeting organizers have submitted a COVID-19 plan.  Want to meet via Zoom?  The parish can help you with that! 

If you have any questions regarding your meeting, please email Theresa Ruttger.

About Mass...

Current Mass capacities are set at 100 individuals at each Mass.  

Pre-registration is not required but we do encourage you to pre-register on SignUp Genius to help streamline check-in at Mass.  Stay connected and celebrate Mass through digital media offerings.  Watch on Facebook or YouTube.

Stay tuned to our parish website for updates.  Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.

About Staffing…

The fluid nature of the unfolding health situation has prompted most of our office staff to work remotely. Please call ahead (651.774.1585) if you need to visit the office.  We hope to keep everybody healthy and safe during these uncertain times.

Thank you for your patience and blessings to all.
