PASTOR'S MESSAGE REGARDING NEW RESTRICTIONS
The new restrictions will only affect the Masses where the attendance is over 486 (50% of our church's capacity); therefore, they will not affect weekday Masses. I am trying to get as many Catholics to church as possible. In Richmond over 90% of the population is doubled vaccinated. Four of our Sunday Masses are currently being attended by over 486 parishioners. Our 6:30 pm Sunday Mass has the lowest attending with about 200-250 attending. As less than 10% of our population is unvaccinated, it only makes sense to have this Mass alone at 50% capacity, for which no proof of vaccination is required; consequently, insuring the maximum number of parishioners can attend Mass.
