The Diocese of Greensburg has announced several changes in order to protect our diocese and the community at large. Click here for more information.
Recommence to Church
With consent from the Office of the Bishop of the Diocese of Greensburg, and with Westmoreland County in the Yellow Zone on the Governors precautionary scale; we can now return to church, with Masses recommencing June 1, 2020. Modifications will be made to the routine of our Masses to stay within the limitations of the Corona Virus Precautions. Masses, Confessions, Adoration, Private Prayer are all being restored. While in "yellow" we can gather for services limiting our gatherings to 25% of the maximum capacity for each gathering area in the church. We are looking into ways to utilize lesser used areas at St. Paul to expand the number of people we can seat for the Weekend Liturgies and still be within the guidelines. Below you will find a schedule of activities as we know it at this time. The schedules will change over time so be sure to check the bulletins on line or in print for each Parish. Returning to church requires using Face Coverings, Hand Sanitizer, and employing Social Distancing 6 feet in each direction. Members of the same household may cluster closer, but all others must follow the
6 feet rule.
Weekday Masses: 8:00AM. Monday-Wednesday- Friday at St. Paul; Tuesday & Thursday at St. Bruno. Monday-Friday the Church at St. Paul will be open and available to visitors for prayer from 8:00AM-Noon.
Adoration: Monday- Friday from 9:00AM-3:00PM at the Adoration Chapel at St. Bruno, located on the lower level of the Rectory. No Adoration is scheduled for St. Paul Parish in the immediate future.
Sacrament of Reconciliation: 10:00-11:30AM at St. Paul on Tuesdays in the Sullivan Room. The environment has been adapted to provide for private confession or a face to face experinece. When we have voting we will not have confession. At St. Bruno, Confessions will be in the Sanctuary on Thursdays from 5:30-7:00PM.
Sunday Mass & Vigil: At St. Paul weekend Masses will be Saturday evening at 4:30PM and Sunday morning at 9:00AM. At St. Bruno they will be Saturday evening at 5:00PM and Sunday morning 11:00AM. To keep our churches sacred and free of the virus Masks & Social Distancing are necessary. You are asked to follow the directions of the ushers and greeters for seating and to obtain bulletins/worship aids.
Meetings: Please call ahead when you need to schedule meetings. Meeting spaces must be sanitized before and after each use. As a result the space and time you use a particular room may not be available. Work with the office managers at St. Bruno & St. Paul to schedule at each parish. For now groups must be 25 participants or smaller and directly affiliated with the Parish.
Parish Bulletins are available on this site for your convenience, and in-print at each Parish. More information about our adaptions to the virus precautions are updated in each issue. Please stay current as we progress through the pandemic. At St. Paul, bulletins will also have the Weekend Mass Worship Aid.
