In the weeks before coronavirus cases began their present spike (while we were still below 3000 new cases a day), our attendance was maxing out at 3 of the four weekend Masses. To keep the worship environment as safe as possible, we moved to reserved seating so we'd always remain at or below capacity.
In recent weeks, as cases have soared beyond 8000 new cases a day, the weekend attendance has averaged about 60% of capacity ... which means the necessity of reserving a seat is no longer a pressing need. Thus, I'll be suspending the practice of reserved seating until attendance numbers again rise to a point where we're at-or-nearing capacity.
IF/WHEN WE RETURN TO ATTENDANCE NUMBER THAT ARE NEAR-OR-AT CAPACITY, WE'LL RETURN TO THE FOLLOWING PROTOCOLS:
To reserve a pew, scroll down the page and click the "Sign Up" box next to the pew(s) you desire. Just a reminder:
- Families of 3-6 people should select 2 adjoining sections (eg. 10A & 10B or 10B & 10C).
- Families of 7-10 people must select all three (3) parts (A, B, AND C) of the same pew.
- If a family of 6 reserves 2 sections of the pew, the remaining section of the pew (even if the default for that section indicates it's a 2-person area) can only accommodate ONE PERSON.
After you've clicked "Sign Up", make sure to click SUBMIT AND SIGN UP at the bottom of the page. (Your reservation is successful ONLY IF/WHEN you receive an email confirmation of your seats.) Please bring a copy of your seat confirmation email when you come to weekend Mass.
If you need a refresher on how pews are designated, click here. The depiction will appear in a new pop-up window- close (or move) that window to return to this form.
Should your plans change and you are no longer able to attend this particular Mass, please inform the parish office (440.707.6707 or [email protected]) so your pew may be made available to another.
LASTLY: This sign-up form looks the same week-after-week-after-week. Please check the date immediately below to make sure you're signing up for the weekend you intend to attend Mass.
