Guidelines For Attending Mass


2 lg stars Attention All Parishioners 

-- The following conditions MUST BE adhered to, in order to accommodate the safe and successful re-opening of Saint William the Abbot for Sunday Mass:

  • No public gatherings or greetings before or after Masses, at church entrances/exits or on any parish property.
  • Only Main entrance doors to be used for entering.  Any/all doors available for exit.
  • Facemask MUST BE WORN upon entrance to the church building.  May be removed ONLY to receive Holy Communion.
  • Hand sanitizer is available.
  • Proper social distancing guidelines MUST BE adhered to.  Seating areas are designated.  DO NOT sit in marked off areas.
  • Offertory collection baskets will not be passed during the liturgy.  Please deposit your contribution in the baskets placed by each exit door. 
  • Printed materials (hymnals, bulletins, etc…) will not be available.
  • Singing is discouraged.
  • Holy Communion will be distributed pew-by-pew.  Follow social distancing guidelines. 
  • Preferred method of Distribution of the Body of Christ is in the hand.  While distribution on the tongue is not prohibited, this method creates sanitary issues, so we ask that ALL recipients adhere to the preferred method.
  • Exiting will be pew-by-pew, and an usher will tell you when to exit.  Again, there will be no gathering in church building or parking lot.
  • We will continue to livestream all the 9:00AM daily Masses and Sunday Mass at 10:15AM. The link can be found on our website.
  • For more information regarding the Bishop’s directives, please visit the Diocesan website at
