Covid-19 Positive Test Notification – Monday, July 27

We were just informed that someone who attended Mass on Sunday, July 19 at 11:00 AM and Saturday, July 25 at 9:00 AM tested positive for COVID-19.  The person was asymptomatic, wore a mask, did not receive Holy Communion and followed all the guidelines set forth by the church and state.  Since all guidelines were taken, we of course do want to want to err on the side of caution.  Please monitor your own health and know that a thorough, deep, cleaning and disinfecting will take place today.
