November 28 Update:
Dear St. Basil Church Community,
I hope everyone is making their way safely through the Thanksgiving Holidays. My own family had a smaller celebration this year and we’re already planning Christmas to be different this year as well. But we gave thanks and we will celebrate the birth of Our Savior. Until then, Advent invites us to wait and watch for the coming of our God.
Advent will also have us waiting and watching for the coming of a vaccine. Once the vaccine is in place, then over the coming months as the vaccine is distributed and administered, our lives can be better protected from the virus and its spread. We will all welcome the benefit of not having to mask and not have limited capacity at our Masses anymore.
But until then, we do what needs to be done to mitigate the spread of the virus. Governor Edwards has moved the state back into a revised phase 2 because the virus is spreading in a not so good way.
So what does that look like at St. Basil. The Church will not be experiencing any different look or practices. The pews will still be roped off for social distancing and therefore a limited capacity. Once the Church has reached capacity, the Hall will be available for overflow
Because of the increased spread of the virus, I want to remind everyone that masks are mandatory and are needed to be worn now more than ever. As you enter the Church or the Hall, masks will be available for you to take if you don’t have your own. If for whatever reason, you cannot wear a mask, then I would ask you to at least wear a face shield which does offer some protection. If neither of these practices are possible for you, I want to remind you that there is still no obligation to have to attend Sunday Mass. The Bishop has dispensed everyone in the Diocese from the Sunday obligation and that is still in effect. So, not having a face covering, I would encourage you not to come to the Church itself, but rather participate at Mass by using a televised viewing of the Mass. Please remember that this is not forever, but only for the time being. And with a vaccine seemingly to be closer at hand, once it is administered then the need to have to wear masks and to limit capacity will be things of the past.
Hand sanitizer is also available as you enter as well. So social distancing, wearing a mask and sanitizing our hands are the practices that will keep everyone as safe as possible until a vaccine is available.
I hope to send a communication at the end of this coming week to begin to let everyone know what we will do for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day Masses.
Prayers for your safety and good health,
