Update to the COVID‐19 Safety Plan for Diocese of St. Augustine
Effective August 21, 2021

Due to the alarming increase of COVID‐19 cases and hospitalizations – the following guidelines are to be implemented for the Diocese of St. Augustine by August 21, 2021.

We encourage everyone who is eligible and with the consultation of their medical doctor to receive a vaccination. Those who are ill or have severe underlying health conditions are encouraged to participate in the Mass via live stream from the safety of their homes.
+East and West transept doors will be locked once Mass has begun in order to ensure safety of those inside.
+Social Distancing: Those with serious health conditions should consult their physician before attending gatherings where contact with others could put them at risk.
+Social distancing should be maintained and observed by all when possible. Family members may sit together.
+Masks: Because not all members of our communities are vaccinated (for COVID‐19), and some people may have conditions that require them to use a mask (such as underlying medical conditions), it is strongly encouraged that all parishioners wear a mask during Mass.
+There should be no physical contact during the sign of peace.
+ It is recommended that Communion only be received in the hand. If Communion is administered on the tongue, those parishioners wishing to receive the Eucharist on the tongue should wait until the end of the Communion line.

The Cathedral is open Monday - Friday from 9am - 5pm.
The Rectory office is open to the public Mon-Thurs 8am - 3pm and Friday 8am - 2pm
