We have started doing bulletins again, but they will only be online for now. 

 

 

We have started Masses again.   We have the 4:00 Mass on Saturday and the 10:00 Mass on Sunday.  The number of people allowed in the church is 50.  Since everyone will not be able to fit in the church, we are asking you to sign up to save a space for you, by clicking the link below.  If you prefer not to sign up on the link, you can call the parish office and leave your name, number of people attending and your phone number.  If there are no spaces left, you will receive a call back.  Weekday Masses have not started yet.   Please be sure to watch the video "returning to Mass" which is shown below in the red.

Everyone planning to attend Mass must adhere to the following guidelines:

1.  Face masks are required to be worn at all times.  Those under the age of 2 should not wear masks.  For those between the ages of 2 and 5, wearing face masks is at the parents' discretion.

2.  Parishioners should keep a distance of at least six feet from those who are not of the same immediate household.

3.  There can be no congregating before or after Mass, inside or outside the church.

4.  The doors to the church will open 15 minutes prior to the start of Mass.

5.  Please enter the church through the main doors.  There is a handicap entrance at the door on the rectory side for handicap parishioners only.  Everyone else should enter through the main doors.

6.  As you enter the church, you will be greeted and seated by volunteers.  Seats will be assigned to keep appropriate social distancing.

7.  Although the restrooms are available, we ask that you try to use the restroom before you arrive.

8.  The offertory baskets will not be passed during Mass.  There will be baskets available for offertory donations as you enter and leave the church.  

9.  Holy Communion should be received in the hands and will not be distributed on the tongue at this time.

10.  Please bring your own hand sanitizer.  

Please remember that during this time, the Sunday dispensation from attending Mass is still in effect.  It is recommended that those who are at high risk, such as the elderly or those with compromised immune systems refrain from attending Mass in person at this time.  You may join us online for our Sunday Mass on our website.  Those attending Mass in person should not have any signs of illness (fever, cough, sneezing, runny nose, etc.)

 

If you can and would like to, you may send your offertory envelopes in as our parish expenses are the same even though we are not celebrating Mass.  Our address is:  St. Thecla Parish, 145 Washington Street, Pembroke, MA 02359.  Thank you to those who have been sending in their donations!!  We do appreciate it.

If anyone is interested in helping be a monitor before Mass (directing parishioners) and cleaning the church after Mass, please contact the office @ 781-826-9786.  We are making teams of six people at each Mass.
