Dear St. Ann Family,
Thank you all for your patience and cooperation during these past 15+ months as we navigate our way through the changing circumstances of COVID. I am very grateful for your help in following our safety practices to help one another. Our goal has always been to move our parish slowly back towards normal in a safe and effective way.
The announcements by the CDC, our NC Governor, and our Bishop last week stated their approval in lifting of some of the statewide mask mandates and physical distancing requirements. As a result of these announcements, we will lift the restrictions and limitations at St. Ann Church this coming weekend. The CDC and NC Governor have stated that fully vaccinated people are no longer required to wear masks indoors or outdoors while at Mass or for other parish events. Those who are not yet vaccinated are asked to wear masks while in our church as we continue to be concerned for your health and safety. If you have not been vaccinated yet, pray about it, and ask your doctor’s advice about being vaccinated.
In response to these changes, the two pew sections on the immediate right and left of the center aisle will be designated for those who choose not to wear masks or physical distance. The other pews will continue to have ropes on them to accommodate those who opt to continue physical distancing.
St. Ann Catholic School will continue to follow the guidelines from the Superintendent of Catholic Schools of the Diocese of Raleigh. Until such guidelines are changed, the school setting will continue the use of masks and physical distancing, and this includes our Thursday school Mass. Please be mindful of those who have not yet been vaccinated, especially children.
I am happy that we are one step closer to what we knew of parish life before COVID. Thank you for your understanding and patients, as we slowly and safely transition through the impacts of COVID.
