  •     Diocese of pittsburgh               ANNOUNCEMENT

    Yesterday, the CDC announced that fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear a mask in most settings. The state of Pennsylvania has adopted these recommendations effective immediately.
    Therefore, in continued alignment with local, state, and federal health guidelines, effective immediately, the fully vaccinated may attend Diocese of Pittsburgh Masses and all gatherings on parish property without wearing a mask. To accommodate those who are not fully vaccinated, and those who may feel more comfortable seated around others who are wearing a mask, a section in every church will be maintained for mask wearing.
    “Fully vaccinated” is defined as being two weeks after a second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine. People who don’t meet those requirements are not considered fully vaccinated and must keep taking all precautions.
    As a reminder, at this point, federal and state directives on eliminating social distancing do not go into effect until May 31, 2021.
    “As we have seen at several points throughout this pandemic, health guidance and directives can change rapidly,” said Bishop David Zubik. “I continue to express my gratitude for the flexibility of the faithful, and the hard work of our clergy and their parish teams in implementing the changing directives into our parishes. Our loving Lord has seen us through our masks and is here with and for us during this next transit
    ---‐-----
    PLEASE NOTE: The mask required sections for our parish are as follows:
    St Margaret Mary- chairs in back of church and cry room
    St Joseph- Healey Hall
    St Catherine's- Siena Hall
    Nothing is changing in our churches regarding where you can sit. Because we can't determine how much space to reserve, we are using the overflows for those uncomfortable sitting near others.
      *Following protocols to receive Holy Communion      as directed at Mass.

  •            COVID Policy

    Due to the increase in COVID cases, we are implementing a temporary rectory office policy (for the rectories in our Grouping - St.  Catherine  of Siena in Crescent, St. Joseph in Coraopolis  and St. Margaret Mary in Moon Township) as a precautionary measure.  Items may be dropped off or picked up at the rectory by prior arrangement.  Thank you.

    What To Expect As We Gather for Mass

    • For the weekend Mass, what to expect?
      *must go into church by the designated entrance.
       
    • Important Diocesan Guidelines?
      *must wear a mask and respect social distancing.
       
    • Guidelines for church capacity?
      *25% of church capacity while respecting social distancing.
      *Our Grouping will only have one Saturday Mass and one Sunday Mass at each Parish (St. Catherine, St. Joseph, St. Margaret Mary). Why? Temporarily dropping one Sunday Mass at each location due to Diocesan guidelines for sanitizing the churches after each Mass.
       
    • If the Church reaches capacity, what happens?
      *Parishioners will be asked to go to the church hall for additional seating and the availability of seeing the Mass live stream. If the hall fills to capacity, we will have no more available seating and must not go beyond Diocesan guidelines. If there are additional people outside, they cannot be admitted due to Diocesan guidelines.
