In our effort to keep people safe and to accommodate social distancing this Christmas, as well as to avoid as much as possible turning people away due to limited capacity, we are planning six Christmas Masses this year. We will require registration. While this is not ideal, it is our current reality.
You must be registered in order to guarantee a spot at Christmas Masses this year.
With our restrictions being what they are, we are asking families to sign up for ONE Christmas Mass this year, either on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.
You can register your household for one Christmas Mass by calling the office at 763.544.0416, 810, or by visiting the signup page. In order for us to accommodate social distancing and adhere to current state regulations, these Masses will be limited to 124 people. Please sign up each member of your household individually.
