The Diocese of Davenport is following the recently issued CDC guidelines which are as follows.
Those who have been fully vaccinated against the Coronavirus may choose to remove their face masks/coverings in both indoor and outdoor social settings. Those who have not yet been fully vaccinated should continue to wear face masks/coverings and practice social distancing. We will have sections of pews available for those who wish to social distance as well as pews available for those who do not wish to practice social distancing. St. Mary’s Parish respects your privacy and we will not ask you of your vaccination status. If, for some reason, this information is needed, we will keep it strictly confidential.
Mass will continue to be livestreamed and available via 98.5 in a 1 block radius of the church with Communion in the courtyard until further notice. The dispensation for Sunday Mass remains in place until further notice.
