Weekend Mass Information

  • Weekend and daily Masses are available in-person and live-streamed.
    • In keeping with the most recent CDC guidance, the Diocese of Grand Rapids is revising diocesan directives regarding masks and social distancing in its parishes. Masks are no longer required during liturgical worship. It is recommended that those who are unvaccinated follow CDC guidance and wear a mask for the safety of fellow parishioners.
    • When you arrive for Mass this weekend, the church will be divided into two sections, socially distanced seating on the left half (Ambo side, with West Transept) of the church, and regular seating on the right half (Altar side, with East Transept) please tell the usher which section you would like.
    • We will continue to offer overflow seating, with simulcast video at each Mass on the weekend.
