COVID-19 UPDATE

WELCOME TO SAINT OLAF CATHOLIC CHURCH
Saint Olaf is open for Daily and Weekend Mass

             Join us for private prayer until 1:00pm in the Main Church and from 1:00pm until 3:30pm in our chapel. 

We continue to follow recommended protocols from the CDC, Minnesota Department of Health, and
         Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis and have procedures in place to be as safe as possible.

NOTICE:
The Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis has released the following memo effective April 1, 2022:
                The Centers for Disease Control, tracking COVID pandemic trends, now classify the entire Twin Cities area
with a Community Level risk of “Low.” It is still advisable to practice good hygiene, keep indoor spaces
well ventilated, and (when showing symptoms) isolate and get tested. However, urging all to wear masks,
keep social distance, and avoid large gatherings is no longer required. Consequently, as of Friday April 1, 2022
the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis is rescinding all pandemic restrictions for liturgical celebrations.
If individual persons or parishes believe it is prudent to retain some restrictions, or to phase them out
incrementally, they are permitted to do so. 
Further, if the pandemic resumes its virulence, it may be necessary to reinstate some protocols.

Saint Olaf embraces the policy: We support Facemasks.  Wearing one is optional.

 Saint Olaf Church Protocol      
 - We support Facemasks.  Wearing one is optional. 
 - Sanitize your hands - stations are available around the church building
 -  Two sections of pews are cordoned off for those who need or would like to maintain distancing.
  The front, west side section of the church in front of the tabernacle, and
  The mid-left, east section of the church on the organ side
 - Communion: follow directions given by the presider. 
You can help us keep safe by following our procedures during your visit.

What is a Synod? What is the purpose?

“A Synod is a formal representative assembly designed to help a bishop in his shepherding of the local Church.”
The purpose is “to discern and establish clear pastoral priorities in a way that will both promote greater unity and lead us to a more vigorous proclamation of Jesus’ good news.”

SYNOD PRAYER
Come Holy Spirit
Make our ears to hear
Make our eyes to see
Make our mouths to speak
Make our hearts to seek
Make our hands to reach out
And touch the world with your love.
AMEN.


Mary, Mother of the Church,
Pray for us.
