WELCOME TO SAINT OLAF CATHOLIC CHURCH
Saint Olaf is open for Daily and Weekend Mass
Join us for private prayer until 5:30pm 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.
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,
(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
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.
