On Friday May 8, Governor Wolfe announced that Allegheny County will enter the Yellow phase of COVID-19 response and recovery on Friday, May 15th. In response to that, Bishop Zubik announced that:

  • All previous directives remain in effect.
  • Limited funeral Masses and weddings continue, with cleaning/sanitizing guidelines in place, expanding to groups of no more than 25 people.
  • Churches will be permitted to open for private prayer with safety guidelines in place including seating in designated areas only, the use of masks, hand sanitizers, and social distancing.
  • Churches open for Confessions – Confessionals do not meet public health safety requirements, and as such, Confessions will be heard at posted times and in a manner that preserves the sanctity of the Sacrament. Penitents must practice social distancing and all other safety guidelines.
  • Livestream Masses and prayer services will continue.

In line with these directives from the Bishop, our parish grouping will make the following changes in our schedule for facilities and sacraments EFFECTIVE FRIDAY, MAY 15th:
