5. Remember to Reserve Your Seat!
Make sure you sign up for Mass so we know how many guests we can expect. This helps us be prepared so we can offer Mass in as safe a way as possible. When you’re signing up, consider volunteering to help with one of the ministries like being an usher or sanitizing the church after Mass. You can sign up online at theworker.org or by calling the Parish Office.
