We rejoice that after these long months of liturgical eclipse owing to the corona virus pandemic, regular public celebration of the Eucharist will resume in the Archdiocese of Hartford next weekend. The Traditional Latin Masses at St. Stanislaus Church will resume with the First Friday Mass on July 3 at 8:00 am, and Sunday Mass at 2:00 pm on July 5.
We include here the note from the Pastor regarding the reopening:
It is with great joy that I share with you the long-awaited news. Archbishop Blair has made the decision to open the churches for Sunday Masses next weekend, July 4th & 5th, with a limit of 100 people per Mass. If people are maintaining the six-foot distance between them, after marking off the pews, there are 60 single places in our church. Taking into account the fact that the people coming to Mass are often spouses and families who may sit together, it is apparent that in our situation, there is room for all. Masses will be celebrated according to the normal Sunday schedule. In addition to maintaining a six-foot distance, there is an obligation to wear a mask as soon as you enter the church. I am already filled with joy in anticipation of our meeting after such a long hiatus. I greet you cordially and assure you of my prayers. I look forward to when we will see each other again!!!
