Here are a few things you should know:

  1. All Readers, Eucharistic Ministers and the priest report to the sacristy to have their temperature taken, review a symptom ‘check-list,’ and wash their hands before going into the church for Mass.
  2. All the sacred vessels used for Mass, including those in the tabernacle and the tabernacle key, are sanitized before each Mass.
  3. The priest uses hand sanitizer at the Preparation of the Gifts BEFORE touching any of the clean vessels.
  4. Each Eucharistic Minister removes her/his mask and uses hand sanitizer in the sanctuary.
  5. Each EM is given a new, clean mask to put on for distribution of Communion – THEY DO NOT PUT THEIR OWN MASK BACK ON. All the pews are scanned with ultra-violet lighting that kills 99.9% of all bacteria and viruses, including COVID-19. In addition, we have contracted with a cleaning service, CINTAS, for cleaning products, deep cleaning of restrooms, replacement of floor mats and the like. We are doing all we can to ensure St Charles Borromeo is a spiritually and environmentally safe place for all to worship.
