SPECIAL COVID-19 STATEMENTS
As always, the safety of priests, parishioners, visitors, staff, and volunteers is our top priority as we worship Our Lord at the Church of the Resurrection. We appreciate the support shown by the Resurrection community to wearing face coverings, washing hands, and social distancing. These practices help Resurrection stay open for worship and prayer, as well as stop the spread of COVID-19 among ourselves.

FACE COVERINGS: Face Coverings are required.
WEEKEND MASS: Beginning August 1st Mass schedule will be:
- Saturday – 8:00 pm

- Sunday – 10:30 am
WEEKDAY MASS: 8:30 am Monday-Friday (no weekday Mass if there is a funeral at the church)
CONFESSION: Confessions will be heard from 9:15-10:15 AM on Saturday morning. Too, confessions are heard by appointment with either of the priests.
CLOSED FOR CLEANING: After each Mass, people will be asked to leave the church structure for the purpose of cleaning the church, gathering space, bathrooms, and doors. Church doors will be locked.
This means: On Sunday, in preparation for the 10:30 am Mass, the doors will not reopen until 10:00 am. During the week, the doors will not reopen until 9:15 am.
OPEN FOR PRAYER: The Church will continue to be open from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm (exception being Saturday with 8:00 pm Mass). However, whenever we have weekday Mass, the church will be locked from 9:00 am till 9:15 am for cleaning and sanitizing. Face masks must be worn, as stated above.
PARISH OFFICE: During the summer months, office hours will be 9:00 am till 5:00 pm. Walk-in traffic will only be allowed from 9:15 am – 5:00 pm. Face coverings must be worn by any and all visitors to the parish office.
SEATING: According to the mandates given by the State of Minnesota, City of Rochester, and Diocese of Winona-Rochester, capacity to indoor gatherings such as prayer or Mass is limited to 50% or 250 persons, whichever is less. Social distancing must remain a priority.
Seating is being done by reservation. Walk-ins are allowed however priority is given to those who have reserved seats.
Beginning the first weekend of October, doors will be lock five minutes after Mass has begun. At this juncture, unclaimed reservations will be surrendered to any walk-ins awaiting an open seat. With this approach, we allow as many people possible at Mass while maintaining proper guidelines.
RECORDED MASS: Mass will be recorded and placed on the Website & Facebook.
HOMEBOUND COMMUNION: Homebound Communion is being phased back in.
OFFETORY/COLLECTION: A collection basket will be available in the front of the church, a drop box will be placed in the Gathering Space, or envelopes can be placed in the drop box by the Parish Office.
