The following is from the Archbishop of San Francisco: “The dispensation from attending Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation remains in effect. Pastors should inform their parishioners with insistence that people who are elderly or who have pre-existing health conditions that make them more vulnerable to infection and being more severely affected once infected should stay home. The same applies to anyone who exhibits symptoms of illness, especially fever, cough or shortness of breath.”
If you are feeling at all sick or showing any kind of symptoms of illness, please, for the safety of all of our community, stay home and join us when you are feeling healthy again.
- Wear a mask.
- Bring hand sanitizer.
- Maintain social distancing (six feet apart from people with whom you are not sheltering in place with).
- Bring your own chair or blanket to sit on. Limited seating will be provided for those who are not able to bring their own chair.
- Bring an umbrella, if being in the sun for an hour will be an issue.
- After Mass is over, you must leave the Church ground immediately.
A PDF copy of the readings and music for Sunday Masses will be available for printing or downloading at our parish website at www.straymondmp.org.
More instructions about how to receive Communion will be given at Mass.
Further, the San Mateo Health Officer asks faith congregations have their members who attend services in person sign an informed consent form that lays out the risks of such gatherings, in order to limit their liability and to assist with contact tracing if that should become necessary. Please print out the linked document and bring the signed copy with you when you come to Mass. You do not need to fill the form if you have already done so at a previous Mass.
