ATTENDING MASS IN PERSON


You are welcome to attend Mass! We no longer require registration for weekend (or weekday) Masses. In light of the recent changes made by President Biden and Governor Walz, we have updated our COVID protocols:

  • Masks are no longer required at Mass or any other parish activity or event. Of course, you are welcome to continue wearing a mask if you wish.
  • We will use all pews for seating rather than only every other. However, at least through the end of June, the 8am Sunday Mass will have seating every other pew.
  • We are resuming having people come forward in lines to receive Communion, just like before COVID. In addition, we are offering an option for those that wish to receive Communion kneeling.

The obligation to attend Sunday Mass and Holy Days of Obligation continues to be suspended at this time. Sunday and daily Masses are live-streamed and posted to our website, on our facebook page, and on YouTube (search for St. Gabriel the Archangel-Hopkins).
