Distribution of Holy Communion
The Diocese of Duluth informed us that we can return the distribution of Holy Communion to the normal time during Mass! Fr. Bissonette, our Diocesan Administrator, issued the policy which follows the policy enacted by Archbishop Hebda.
Most pandemic-related protocols for Communion will remain the same. Please social distance, sanitize, etc. However, at our parishes we will now welcome you to receive Holy Communion during the Mass before the final blessing. I know many of you will be grateful for this news.
Jesus Christ remains with us on our journey through life. We rejoice in His promise, "I am with you always!"
Gratefully in Christ,
Fr. Daniel Weiske
We have resumed our normal Mass schedule.
Sign-up for Sunday Mass at St. Mathias is no longer required, but is still recommended for Saturday and Sunday Masses at St. Andrew's. Please contact the office before noon on Thursdays to request a seat.
All the faithful remain dispensed from attending Mass for the foreseeable future and we will continue live-streaming Masses. In other words, no one is obligated to come to Mass.
We are blessed by your generosity!
