COVID 19 UPDATE: AS OF MAY 31, 2021: Following recent updates by the Centers for Disease Control and upon the recommendations of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, the following will become the common practice at St. John Fisher Parish beginning May 31:
ALL PEWS will be available for seating at Mass at St. John Fisher Church. Please leave some space between your family and the next within the pew, and spread out in line when receiving the Eucharist.
IF YOU ARE FULLY VACCINATED, wearing a face mask is optional.
IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN FULLY VACCINATED, masks are required to be worn within the parish buildings, including during Mass.
You'll notice other changes in Church: Missals are in the pews and the Holy Water fonts will be filled.
Through Labor Day, we will recite the 'Gloria'; the Responsorial Psalm will be sung by the cantor; there will be no Offertory Procession and no Sign of Peace. The Sunday 8:00 a.m. Mass will continue in simple celebration, with music but without a cantor.
Eucharistic Ministers will continue to use hand sanitizer and will wear a mask while distributing Holy Communion through the end of June.
Your cooperation with the measures we have taken to mitigate risk for the past year has been great! Thank you for your patience as we transition back to 'normal'!
