Together With Christ, For Our Future

 

The State of Louisiana has reeturned to COVID-19 Phase 2 (modified).

For churches, the protocol stays at 75% of capacity.  However, our churches must maintain the 6 foot social distance protocol as well.  Therefore, the capacity for each church is as follows:

          Sacred Heart:   128          St. Joseph:   182         Prompt Succor:   84          St. Michael:   191

Recently we have seen maximum capacity in live Mass participation. You should get to church early to make certain you have a seat.

Whenever attending Mass – Sunday, weekday, funeral, wedding, or other – everyone is still expected to wear a face mask while in the church building. Why wear a Face mask?

We appreciate the patience of the community as we move forward with caution for everyone’s health and safety.

See the full PHASE III PROTOCOLS.

Mass Virus-Safety Protocols

1.   Every person must wear a face      mask the entire time you are in       church; there are no exceptions.

2.   Every person must obey the 6 ft. social-distance rule, at all times: in the church; entering or leaving       church; and even in the parking lot.

3.   Only pew seats marked with Blue Tape can be used.  Do not sit in       non-designated pew seats.
