Mass Schedule

Guidelines for St. John the Evangelist ALL Weekday and Weekend Masses

Bishop Medley has extended, until further notice, the dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass. Therefore, no one is required to attend Mass on Sunday or Saturday evening. However, the Sunday Mass is ESSENTIAL to our spiritual life. So if you go to the grocery or any big name businesses where there is a lot of people during the week......then why aren't you coming to Sunday Mass? You go to Mass not because we are obliged to attend BUT because the Sunday worship of God is something we owe Him out of Justice and Love.

Those who are considered to be at risk and those who may feel uncomfortable attending a public Mass should worship from home. We will try to continue to live stream the Mass.

Weekday and Weekend Masses

The 5:00pm Vigil Mass on Saturday and 7:30am and 9:30am Mass on Sunday WILL BE INSIDE THE CHURCH.

Capacity of seating now according to the Governor's and the Bishop's Guidelines will be 110. All households are required to sit 6ft apart. (the markings on the pews will help people see where they can sit). Once 110 people are in church, the doors will be locked and those people over 110 will be able to stand outside on the porch to attend Mass.

Masks and Social Distancing

  • Social Distancing (6ft-8ft) will be required for ALL.
  • Family members of the same house can sit together.
  • Masked are required for ALL over the age of the age of 3 years old.
  • Mask is required for one to enter the church for Mass and must be worn throughout the Mass.
  • If individuals are uncomfortable or children are not mature enough to wear a mask for the entire liturgy, they should worship from home.
  • YOU ARE TO PROVIDE YOUR OWN MASK for MASS. The Parish WILL NOT be providing everyone a mask for every Mass.


A COLLECTION BASKET will be at the church entrance at the Holy Water Font. Please place your Sunday Offerings in this basket when you enter church.

Holy Communion

  • Only one side of the church at a time will go to Holy Communion with ALL maintaining a 6ft distance between one another in the Communion line.
  • There will be NO Holy Communion on the tongue. ONLY HOLY COMMUNION in the HAND.
  • Please keep your face mask in place until you receive Holy Communion in your hand. Step to the side. Then remove the covering long enough to place the host in your mouth.
  • At the end of Mass, we ask that you exit the church a row at a time, beginning from the back at the directions of the USHERS.

PLEASE DO NOT congregate after Mass to talk, but go straight to your cars.
