Diocese of Brooklyn Eases Mass Restrictions, Returns to Full Capacity

  • Hymnals and missalettes can once again be used.
  • Lectors can read from the main ambo or the pulpit.
  • Extraordinary Ministers of holy Communion may resume their ministry with proper hand hygiene before and after holy Communion.
  • Collection baskets may resume as normal.
  • The Offertory Procession with the gifts of the bread and wine can resume.
  • Choirs with vaccinated members can operate as normal, while unvaccinated members must maintain social distancing.
  • Altar servers may resume their ministry with proper hygiene procedures.

To make things simple in our parish we will continue to wear masks and excercise social distancing until further notice.

There are a few protocols that won’t change. Hand hygiene, in general, is still required, and holy Communion is still to be given in the form of bread only. There are no shared Communion cups, and receiving Communion in the hand is still recommended.

La Diócesis de Brooklyn alivia las restricciones masivas y vuelve a su capacidad máxima

20 de mayo de 2021

  • Se pueden volver a utilizar himnarios y misaltos.
  • Los lectores pueden leer desde el ambón principal o desde el púlpito.
  • Los Ministros Extraordinarios de la Sagrada Comunión pueden reanudar su ministerio con una adecuada higiene de manos antes y después de la Sagrada Comunión.
  • Las cestas de recolección pueden reanudarse con normalidad.
  • Se puede reanudar la Procesión del Ofertorio con los obsequios del pan y el vino.
  • Los coros con miembros vacunados pueden funcionar con normalidad, mientras que los miembros no vacunados deben mantener el distanciamiento social.
  • Los monaguillos pueden reanudar su ministerio con los procedimientos de higiene adecuados.

Para simplificar las cosas en nuestra parroquia, continuaremos usando máscaras y ejerciendo distanciamiento social hasta nuevo aviso.

Hay algunos protocolos que no cambiarán. La higiene de las manos, en general, sigue siendo necesaria, y la Sagrada Comunión todavía se debe dar solo en forma de pan. No hay copas de Comunión compartidas, y aún se recomienda recibir la Comunión en la mano.
