We joyfully anticipate the return of many of our parishioners to Mass during the coming months! Whether you are returning after a long absence, or have been attending for some months, we would like to update you on some of our changing protocols for Mass attendance.
We will no longer be requiring Mass signups to attend Mass. We still require you to follow social distancing protocols, and we encourage you to arrive early (doors will be open 30 minutes before Mass) to be sure you are able to get a spot. We also have overflow seating in our gym. Seating will be on a first come, first serve basis. Please be assured that we will try our best to safely accommodate everyone who comes back to Mass.
If you are unable to attend Mass in person, we invite you to join us online. Subscribe to us on YouTube at www.youtube.com/stmaryofthehillscatholicchurch to view our streamed Masses.
If you test positive for COVID-19 after attending a Mass or event, we ask that you please notify Arnie Vandercruyssen at the main office (248-583-5390). We will notify our parishioners that there has been a reported case by posting it on our website at www.smoth.org. We will always respect the privacy of the individual who has reported the case.
Please remember to wear a mask and follow social distancing protocols. We appreciate the efforts you are making to keep everyone safe and allow us to keep our doors open.
God bless you and we’ll see you at Mass.
