Dear Community Members,
I want to start by thanking you for your cooperation over the past 15 months. It is a sign of our concern for each other that we have taken the precautions to protect one another.
How to move forward was not easy to decide. As the show of hands in Masses last weekend showed, we have different comfort levels about how far to go in opening up. Also, some of us are more vulnerable than others. I thank the staff and parish Leadership Team who helped me navigate this difficult decision. We have tried to find a middle ground, allowing some of the openings approved by the CDC, Wauwatosa, and the diocese, while respecting the legitimate hesitancy of some community members.
The protocols starting this weekend are not etched in stone. Each week the Leadership Team will review them, based on feedback and what is happening in our world. I thank you in advance for your continued cooperation in our efforts, through Christian charity, to make all feel safe and welcome in our worship space.
The new protocols:
