Corona Virus Situation

Rules and regulations during the Corona Pandemic

The Archdiocese of Cologne has presented a list of conditions

for the public celebration of Holy Mass. Below is a summary in English:

  1. In order to inform members of a congregation of a possible infection risk, the Archdiocese of Cologne requires a list of those present at Holy Mass. Please enter your contact information (name and either address or telephone number) on the form in the back of the church.

  2. A minimum distance of 1.5 meters (5 ft) must be maintained in all directions inside and outside the church. People who live together are counted as one, i.e. they can sit next to each other in the pew, enter and leave the church together, etc. Please observe the markings indicating safe distances inside and outside the church as well as in the pews for the foreseen seating arrangement.

  3. Singing is permitted if a distance of 2 meters (6.5 ft) is maintained.

  4. Those with symptoms of a cold or suspicion of a corona infection should not attend Holy Mass.

  5. Please use the hand sanitizer at the entrance/exit.

  6. A covering for the mouth and nose is required at all times inside the church. If the 7-day incident rate is below 35, coverings are not required at your seats.

  7. If you wish to contribute to the collection, please do so in the baskets located in the front or back of the church. They will not be circulated during Holy Mass.

  8. The sign of peace is to be made without body contact.

  9. Holy Communion may be received on the tongue under specific conditions. Please see the priest for more details.

Thank you for your help and understanding!

God Bless You!
