PUBLIC MASSES
Public Masses will begin the weekend of May 23rd and 24th. So, our first public Mass will be at 4:30pm on Saturday, May 23rd. For right now, once public Masses begin, our Sunday Mass schedule will remain the same: 4:30pm (vigil), 8:00am, 10:30am, and 6:00pm.
Father Jason is still trying to assess the resources and precautions we need to have safe celebrations of Mass. After we determine the things we need and the amount of help we need cleaning after each service, he will make a decision about the weekday Mass schedule.

DISPENSATION
All Catholics in the diocese are dispensed from Sunday Mass obligation until August 15th.

SURVEY
Due to social distancing guidelines, the diocese has issued limitations that affect the number of people who will be able to attend Mass at any one time. There are several options to consider, but we need your input as we work to determine our best way forward. Please complete this short, 3 question survey by Tuesday, May 12th. Please make sure that only one family member fills out the survey. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ZBCX82G

REQUEST FOR USHERS
During this time of social distancing, we especially need the help of ushers to assist with safely spaced seating. Please contact the church office if you are willing to serve in this capacity, even if just temporarily during this time of pandemic. 262-1505 or office@stthomaselkhart.com

AFTER MASS CHURCH SANITIZING
The church must be thoroughly sanitized after each Mass. This will require committed individuals to stay after Mass to clean. This group is especially important if we hope to offer consistent, public, weekend Masses. Please contact the church office if you are willing to service in this capacity. This is a temporary commitment as we move through these next few weeks/months. 262-1505 or office@stthomaselkhart.com

MASKS
The diocese is requiring that all congregants (except for little children) MUST wear masks or other face coverings to Mass out of concern for fellow parishioners. Parishioners need to provide their own masks.

ADORATION CHANGE THIS WEEK
This Thursday, Father will say Mass at our normal time, but we will NOT have adoration afterward because Father has to leave for a diocesan committee meeting he is expected to attend in Fort Wayne. Instead, we will have adoration following the 8:15am live streaming Mass this Friday.

DRIVE UP CONFESSIONS
Father Jason will hear drive up confessions next Saturday, May 16th from 9:15am to 10:15am. Please pull into the big lot across the street from church and watch for direction to pull forward when Father is ready for you.

STS SUPPORTS
Please support King Wha restaurant this Friday, May 8th anytime between 11am and 9pm. Please call them for carry out 266-0285. You can access their menu at https://www.facebook.com/KingWhaChineseRestaurant/ .
