The Archdiocese is recommending masks at all events held indoors in order to stop the spread of the delta variant of the coronavirus.  The Pastoral Center is asking their partners in ministry and visitors to wear a mask indoors.  This will hopefully a temporary safety measure to stop the spread of the delta variant of the coronavirus. This recommendation will be re-evaluated as circumstances change.  The greater our compliance with the request to be vaccinated and the recommendation to wear a mask indoors, the sooner the pandemic will be over.
