St. Paul of the Cross

Gym Mass

We are offering an additional Mass on Sundays at 12:00 pm in the gym. We have placed in each circle 4-6 chairs to accommodate a maximum attendance per circle of 6. In the case you are a bigger group than 6 and you are bringing one or two children that are still small enough to be seated on the lap of a parent you won't have to register for two circles. Everyone else attending with a bigger group of 6-8 adults would have to register for 2 circles. The circles for seating respect social distancing. The floor has been marked and ushers will seat you. Each circle can accommodate a family of four or six or a couple. If you register as a single, you will be seated in the bleachers (a total of 9 spots available). If those have been taken, you have to register as a single for one of the circles.

Please enter through the Maintenance/delivery entrance B2. A sign will be posted. Please exit following the ushers through the door off of Washington street B4. These are external doors which allow us to have parishioners attend Mass without a need to enter any other part of the school building. 

Holy Communion will be distributed to each person.  Please remain in your circle, or in the bleachers for the entire Mass.

Regarding attendees, please know that any family member or friend who was in direct or indirect contact with anyone with COVID-19 will need to be quarantined or have been in quarantine for 14 days. If the quarantine time frame falls when the sacrament is scheduled, they may not attend. We also ask that if anyone is experiencing symptoms to please not attend. We are following the guidelines of the CDC.

All attendees will be met by a greeter who is trained to:

  • Ask how the person is feeling. Screen temperature. Anyone whose temperature is 99.5 degrees or higher will not be allowed into the Church. People with symptoms and a temperature should stay home.
  • Offer hand sanitizer
  • Offer a mask, if they do not have one of their own. Mask must be worn at all times.
  • Direct them to the designated circle or the bleachers. (Ask them to stay in that spot until they are ready to leave)
  • Due to COVID-19, bathrooms are not available. If you have an emergency, please see the Usher.

Per the Archdiocese guidelines:
Importantly, per guidelines from the Illinois Department of Public Health, parishes will need to retain parishioner attendance records (including name, date and time of attendance) for the purposes of contact tracing if and when a confirmed case of COVID-19 is identified. Those records will need to be stored securely and must be deleted 14 days after each liturgical celebration on a rolling basis if not requested by health officials. This is to protect the privacy of all people.

While we are attempting to take appropriate precautions consistent with the advice of public health authorities, guests should understand that they assume the risk of contracting COVID-19 any time they enter a public space since such precautions do not eliminate the risk of infection. By signing up for a slot, I am attesting that I understand the risk I am taking.

If you have any questions, please contact Madeleine McCoy at 847-825-7605.
