WALKING WITH PURPOSE
(WWP) is a Catholic women’s faith study. It aims to bring women to a deeper personal relationship with Jesus Christ by offering personal study and small group discussion that link our everyday challenges and struggles with the solutions given to us through the teachings of Christ and the Roman Catholic Church.

GUIDELINES FOR ATTENDING MASS AT ST. DENIS:

  • Do not come to Mass if you are not feeling well, or in an at-risk population as advised by health care professionals.
  • Do not arrive more than 30 min. before, and you must stay to the end of Mass. N No congregating is permitted after Mass. We will sanitize before and after Masses. All doors and windows will be open for air circulation. You must enter through the front doors and there will be instructions for leaving by sections. The directives are for us to maintain social distance and for orderly seating (you will be directed) and orderly leaving.
  • You must wear a mask during the entirety of the Mass with the exception of when you receive Communion.Pews are marked and you can sit as directed by the ushers and assistants. Families/couples can sit together and others will navigate from that grouping. The Eucharistic Minister will come to you for Holy Communion and you are asked to receive in the hand. After the Minister moves away, you may remove your mask to receive the Eucharist, and then replace your mask. Parents are asked to assist their children.
  • If this is too much for you at this time, please do not come to church and instead watch the Facebook Mass. Obviously this is something brand new and we will need people’s cooperation and patience. There is not an obligation to attend Mass until further notice, so if attending Mass with these “pandemic precautions” in mind will be a source of stress and make you uncomfortable, you may wish to wait for another few weeks to come back to Mass.

To not be together and to not receive Communion is the biggest sacrifice a Catholic can make, and we are being asked to make this sacrifice. We are asked to stay at home and we know that we can pray at home in solidarity with each other. In your prayers, I ask you to please join in Spiritual Communion each day:

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
