Saturday Vigil/Sunday Mass at St. Bernadette has a limited capacity of 125 for each Mass. Face masks are required, and seating in the church has been arranged to support social distancing for individuals and households. At this time we do not require registration to attend Mass.
We know that many of you are still being cautious and choose to remain Safe at Home. We encourage you to remain cautious and return to mass only when you feel safe. Live streamed mass is available every weekend through our website, Facebook page, and Youtube channel.
A dispensation from the Sunday and Holy Days of obligation to participate in the Mass remains in place for all Catholics in the Archdiocese of Denver until further notice. Anyone who is in an at-risk health group or does not feel comfortable attending a public gathering should stay home. Even with the best health practices and increased efforts to disinfect the Church, there is a risk of infection anytime a person enters a public space. Anyone who is sick or has recently been exposed to the coronavirus should refrain from attending a public Mass as it is an act of Christian charity to safeguard the health of others.
We continue to celebrate the Lord’s Day in accordance with Third Commandment and the direction of the Catechism of the Catholic Church beginning with paragraph 2168, The third commandment of the Decalogue recalls the holiness of the sabbath: “The seventh day is a sabbath of solemn rest, holy to the LORD”.
See you at Mass or online.
