Changes in COVID precautions

With the rapid decline in Covid numbers, we have eased some of our previous precautions. The Archdiocese of Louisville has adopted a “mask-optional approach to parish liturgies,” and so beginning March 12/13 our parish will as well.  Those in the assembly as well as ministers certainly have the option to wear a mask if they choose, but it will no longer be required.
Also we will no longer sanitize the pews after each Mass. Thank you to all who stayed after Masses to help with this task.   Your service is greatly appreciated.
