Temporary Mass Attendance Details

Churches are temporarily restricted to 1/3 capacity. To stay within these requirements, Our Lady of Good Counsel parishioners will be divided into two groups, who may attend weekend Masses in church on an alternating schedule.

Group 1: Parishioners with surnames beginning with A-M

Group 2: Parishioners with surnames beginning with N-Z

Hopefully we will not need to continue this plan for very long, but following is the proposed schedule for each group:

Group 1 (A-M)

September 5th, 6th
September 19th, 20th
October 3rd, 4th
October 17th, 18th
October 31st, November 1st
November 14th, 15th
November 28th, 29th

Group 2 (N-Z)

September 12th, 13th
September 26th, 27th
October 10th, 11th
October 24th, 25th
November 7th, 8th
November 21st, 22nd

NOTE: Our Bishop’s dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass is still in effect. Therefore you are not sinning if you do not attend a Mass for Sunday.

Weekend Mass Schedule

Parishioners may attend any of the following Masses for the weekends assigned to their group:

Saturday 4:00 PM Anticipated Mass
Sunday 8:00 AM Traditional Latin Mass
Sunday 9:30 AM
Sunday 11:00 AM*

*The 11:00 AM Mass on Sundays will be live streamed on YouTube and Facebook for those who cannot attend a Mass in person. The recording will be available later if you cannot watch live.

When you Attend

  • Masks are to be worn inside the church
  • Enter through the front door and exit through the side doors
  • Observe social distancing rules and sit only in pews that have not been marked off

Please observe these rules out of charity for your neighbor and so that our government will not further restrict or prolong restrictions on Mass attendance. Keep praying that we are allowed full capacity soon!
