JOIN US FOR CHRISTMAS MASS
Holy Apostles is dedicated to the health and safety of every one of our guests. Christmas Masses will look much different this year as masks and social distancing will limit the number of guests that we can serve.
Please be aware of the following:
To keep foot traffic better organized, the only three entrances that will be open are the main National Avenue entrance, the west doors, and the Parish Center Lobby off of the cemetery. The Welcome Center doors will remain locked. There will be signs in the parking lot to help direct vehicle traffic.
Doors will not open until 30 minutes prior to each Mass. This will allow time to sanitize the church. Please stay in your vehicle if you arrive early and avoid congregating outside of the church doors.
Ushers will be available at each of the three entrances to assist with seating. The first guests at each entrance will be seated in the front pew, the next group in the second pew, and so on. Please do not walk through the church looking for seats. Please wait to be seated by an usher.
Once the church sanctuary is full, the next guests will be seated in the balcony. Once the balcony is full, guests will be seated in the Welcome Center. When we reach a maximum of 400 total guests at any one Mass, the doors will be closed and no further entry will be permitted.
There will be a few reserved pews at the back of the church sanctuary for families with 6 or more guests.
Please exit the church as quickly as possible after each Mass. Please do not congregate inside the building. We'll need as much time as possible to sanitize the church and reset for guests at the next Mass.
The 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm Masses on Christmas Eve will be filled to capacity. Please consider a later Mass on Christmas Eve or on Christmas Day, or tune in to one of our live-streamed Masses (4:00 pm or 10:30 pm on Thursday, December 24th and 11:15 am on Friday, December 25th) if you are able so that more visitors can experience the Holy Apostles hospitality in person.
Christmas Blessings to each of you!

SEE YOU AT MASS: CATHOLIC COMEBACK PHASE TWO
The dispensation to attend Sunday Mass expired September 14 and we very much look forward to welcoming many of you back to Mass! We also understand that returning to Mass during this time is an important decision that each person will make based on their personal situation. Whatever you choose, we welcome you back when you are ready!
Please know that we will continue all of the safety precautions that have been in place--wearing masks while in Church, adhering to social distancing guidelines and thorough sanitization of our space. To accommodate more families, we will open the balcony for seating, as well as add additional chairs for seating in the Welcome Center.
We also will continue to offer the live-stream Mass on Sundays at 9:15 a.m. for those who wish to attend from home!
