With the announcement from the CDC and the Governor’s Office there are some significant changes taking shape that affect us.

First, beginning Memorial Day Weekend, we are permitted to stop the distancing between pews so we can move to full capacity and after next weekend no one needs to call and request seating in our parish.  Also, beginning Memorial Day Weekend we no longer have to sanitize after every service.  The Exchange of Peace has NOT been restored but I suspect that will be coming soon. 

Secondly, the CDC announced that fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear a mask or keep social distancing in most settings. To be clear, fully vaccinated is two weeks after the reception of the second Pfizer or Moderna Vaccine or two weeks after the single Johnson and Johnson Vaccine. People who do not meet those requirements are not considered fully vaccinated, and must keep taking all precautions. The State of Pennsylvania has adopted these recommendations effective immediately. The other requirements of sanitization and social distancing remain in place until Memorial Day. Here is a link to the CDC guidance: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/fully-vaccinated-guidance.html.  Therefore, in continued alignment with local, state, and federal health guidelines, effective immediately, the fully vaccinated may attend Diocese of Harrisburg Masses without wearing a mask.

In consultation with Bishop Gainer and Fr Brommer, the Diocese is requesting that parishes post signs in prominent locations in our churches, and that a verbal announcement be made before each Mass as well, that says: “If you are not fully vaccinated, please continue to wear a mask.” We must continue to do our part to keep the unvaccinated as safe as we possibly can.  Rev. Philip Burger, Pastor
