Brothers and Sisters, thank you for understanding that this is our SJV phase two protocol, and we will be evaluating week by week.  Following distancing guidelines and with limited seating capacity, there is the possibility that some of the faithful arriving could be turned away at the gate due to these space limitations, and asked to either return for a later mass or to participate online.  Trust that we understand how difficult this might be, should this occur.  I thank you in advance for your patience and understanding in this messy and imperfect process.  Through it all, you are encouraged to stay safe, stay healthy, and stay holy!
