Corona Virus Update
Effective Monday, June 1, the Diocese of Portland is allowing Maine churches to hold public Masses with restrictions and safeguards in place.
The weekend of June 6 and 7, 2020, Parish of the Holy Savior will begin offering two public Masses: Saturday, 4:00 pm Mass outside at St. John’s Cemetery, and Sunday 9:30 am inside at St. Athanasius and St. John Church. The 9:30 am Sunday Mass in Church will be limited to 50 people (including priest and ministers). It will continue to be live-streamed. Parishioners who would like to attend are asked to register via the Parish Office (207) 364-4556. The Saturday 4:00 pm Mass at the Cemetery will offer both a “Drive-In” option for those who would like to remain in their vehicles and an outside option limited to 50 people upfront and closer to the altar (first-come-first-served). The Cemetery Mass will continue to be broadcast on a low-power FM transmitter.
The Porters and Parish Volunteers will assist parishioners with the new processes of entering and exiting the Church building or cemetery and with the new procedures for receiving Holy Communion that will ensure proper social distancing, contact precaution, and cleanliness. A detailed document describing these procedures will be available shortly.
Bishop Deeley will continue to dispense from the Sunday Obligation for the foreseeable future. Individuals who are sick or vulnerable are asked to stay home.
Initially, daily Masses will continue to be livestreamed but not public in an effort to accommodate funerals. Mass at Our Lady of the Snows in Bethel will be announced shortly.
