St. Basil’s Catholic Parish is now open for Weekday and Weekend Masses only.
BEFORE YOU ARRIVE:
Parishioners are strongly encouraged to self-screen before attending church, including taking their temperature. Those with a temperature at or above 37.5 C/99.5 F are asked to not attend Mass. Those who exhibit fever or any other indications of a viral infections are asked to seek medical attention before coming to church.
AS YOU ARRIVE:
Hand sanitizer is available on the tables near the entrance. Please sanitize your hands when you enter and leave the church.
In order to observe safe social distancing, there will be dedicated spaces to sit. The seats will be marked in the pews. They are available on a first come, first served basis.
Please stay six feet apart as you enter and leave the church and at all times when you are in the church. Volunteers will be there to direct you.
There is an urgent need for many volunteers; implementing the archdiocesan plan for re-opening safely requires many volunteers present for every Mass. Each time the church is open for prayer or Mass we will need volunteers to be greeters, ushers, and to clean and sanitize surfaces.
