Resuming Public Masses

Beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, May 12, at 8:00 am, we will have public Masses at Our Lady of the Gulf. I look forward to seeing you then.  The distribution of communion at 9:30 am will be discontinued beginning tomorrow. Let’s all observe the guidelines issued by Governor Kay Ivey and Archbishop Rodi. Such precautions as wearing a mask, observing social distancing and receiving communion in the hand only, go a long way in protecting us from Covid-19. This virus remains a deadly danger, so we owe it to each other to adhere to the precautions.

  • A general dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass is still in effect.
  • If you are sick DO NOT attend Mass.
  • No Sign-up is necessary – all seats are first come-first serve.
  • You are encouraged to wear a mask and gloves, but it is not required.
  • Social distancing must be maintained between families/households and others.
  • Larger families are encouraged to use the pews on the sides and to maintain 6’ from those outside your family.
  • Please do not move chairs. They are arranged in clusters of various sizes and are properly social distanced from others.
  • Please sit in the smallest cluster of chairs that will accommodate your household. If you are alone, please do not sit in a three-chair cluster, unless that is all that is available.
  • While you are welcome to bring your own missal or app, OLG cannot provide any shared worship aids (Hymnals/Missalettes).
  • Please maintain social distancing in the Communion line and when departing Mass.
  • Communion must be received in the hand; please fully extend arms. If you are wearing gloves, you are asked to remove them to receive Communion.
