Designated section in our churches for social distancing

UPDATE AS OF JAN. 20, 2022: In order to make Mass accessible to as many as possible, by the weekend of Jan. 22-23 pastors of our parishes are required to create a section within each church where social distancing can be practiced, if the church doesn’t currently have this space set aside already. Each pastor may determine the best way to designate this section in the church. Parishioners choosing to sit in a socially-distanced section are required to wear masks. This directive is in effect until Feb. 28, at which time it will be re-evaluated.
