COVID Guidelines and RESERVATIONS for Holy Week and Easter

Welcome Back. Welcome Home.

Dear Parishioners, 

Our hearts are overjoyed to see many of you returning to Masses. It has been a long year since we closed and have only had a percentage of our parish family return to Mass until recent weeks. Many in our parish community have received their vaccines– something which we hope will assist in the return to some sense of normalcy in the near future. 

As the pandemic begins to slow, we want to remind everyone that we still have social and moral obligations to one another– especially the most weak and vulnerable among us. To that end, we wish to remind you of the following: 

  • Masks should be worn over the nose and mouth while in any of our buildings. Masks may be pulled down to receive Holy Communion. 
  • Maintaining social distance remains important. Please use tape marks on the floor and pews to remain six feet away from others when inside our buildings. 
  • When you enter the church, please find your pew and remain there– avoiding sitting, talking, or visiting with others. 
  • Holy water, the collection, and Sign of Peace will remain suspended until otherwise advised from the Diocese of Toledo. You will continue to find bulletins and baskets to place your tithing at the entrances to the church. 
  • When leaving, please exit one family at a time and maintain social distancing. Once outside, we encourage visiting on the sidewalks for as long as you desire. You are welcome to remove masks and discontinue social distancing as you see fit. 

Some of our Masses are beginning to near capacity, which is a blessing. How can you assist? If you normally attend a Mass which is more crowded, does your schedule permit attending a less crowded Mass? Are there family/friends that you see regularly and can safely sit with at Mass to consolidate some space? 

Again, we are so happy to be reunited with more and more of you each week. Let us all do our best, in charity, to make the Mass experience a safe, joyful one for all. 

In Christ, 
The Clergy & Staff of Epiphany of the Lord Parish 

Easter 2021- Reservation Policies and Procedures 

As more and more people attend Masses, which is excellent, we need to do our best to maximize space when we are expecting larger crowds. Please use the QR code below to reach our reservation form and let us know how many to expect from your household at these services. If a Palm Sunday or Easter Sunday Mass reaches capacity, we may ask you to register for a different Mass time so as to help us maintain social distancing while we are still at limited seating.

If you cannot use the QR code or click on the above RED link,
please contact Holly Cerveny at 419-698-1519 or to reserve your spot(s).
Thank you for understanding!
