Re-Cap from the weekend and plan for this wk
St. Matthias Family,
Our second Sunday back was GREAT! We had even more familiar faces join us and everyone in attendance was so happy to be back and all were so eager to help and ensure protocols were followed precisely. We had a great turn-out and can’t wait to see everyone back this next Sunday.
We have decided to observe the same Mass schedule again this coming weekend: English-9:45am Rosary /10:30am Mass and Spanish-12:15pm Rosary/1pm Mass, while live streaming both the Rosary and Mass, for the viewers at home. We will be adjusting our process for the Communion Line procedures, so please watch for this, in the coming days and likely to go out on Wednesday's Flocknote. The Sign-Up Genius portal will open on Wednesday at 10:00 am for the Masses on Sunday, May 24th ; the Flocknote with the details and the link to the portal will go out prior to that.
We have received some feedback regarding the Sign-Up Genius portal. It appears some of you have had some issues signing-up and are under the impression your desired Mass is full, when in fact it is not. Once you receive the Flocknote, with the Sign-Up Genius links (sent out each Wednesday), you need to select your desired Mass, by clicking on the appropriate button. You will be re-directed straight to the Sign-Up Genius sign-up sheet, for the Mass you selected. You will need to check/ click-on the number of seats you need and then hit the "Submit and Sign-Up" button at the bottom of the page. (Please note: If you are viewing from your phone, you will only be able to see a certain number of seats at a time, please scroll to the bottom of the page and hit the "More" button, to take you to the next page, and keep doing this until you see available seats.) Once you have hit the "Submit and Sign-Up" button, you will be taken to the next screen, where you will need to
enter the name of EACH person attending
Mass on that given Sunday
; one name per "Attendee" line. (This is the list used at check-in, prior to Mass. It is extremely important that we have the correct name(s) on our list.) Hit the "Sign-Up Now!" button and all done; it's as easy as that!
When signing-up for a seat, please be sure you show-up for that Mass; we have reserved a seat(s) just for you! There have been some no-shows the past two weekends and we would rather not hold a seat for you, if you don't intend to come. We understand things may happen between Wednesday and Sunday, so please, if something does come-up and you are unable to attend, delete the reservation, to allow for a fellow parishioner to celebrate the Holy Mass instead.
As a reminder, Cardinal DiNardo has issued a dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass. If you are in a high-risk category, live with someone who is high risk, or take care of someone who is high risk you are encouraged to not come to Mass. Please understand this is for your safety as well as those you are in close contact with.
