Welcome to SS Peter andPaul and St. John the Apostle website. It seems we are gratefully moving forward in our battle against COVID-19. While cases are still coming in positive world-wide, our local community has been relatively cooperative in following protocols for the mitigation of the virus’s spread. I certainly appreciate parishioners and friends of our two parishes who have helped us stay happy, healthy and holy during these trying times. Although we are clearly not out of the woods yet, it is nice to feel some freedoms returning and the cautious gatherings bring us together in faith and fellowship. May God bless us and keep us under His watchful care.
Now, July 1, 2020 and moving forward, the public gathering of the faithful is allowed under all circumstances following the advice of local health authorities. Therefore, the High Risk category on the COVID-19 Compass of Trempealeau County allows for indoor gatherings at 25% occupancy with proper disinfection and social distancing. Wearing face-masks is strongly recommended for anyone attending parish events and mandated for anyone who breaks social distancing for purposes of movement or instruction.
The protocols now apply to any church activities which may include: Meetings, Baptisms, Weddings, Funerals, or special gatherings. In preparation for events with a larger number of guests, written and verbal instructions of our protocols will be provided. For the usual Mass schedule, social media live-streaming and recorded postings as well as the weekend FM 90.1 transition will continue for those who choose not to enter the church. As always, if you are not feeling well, are in highly vulnerable categories for coronavirus symptoms or are protecting yourself and others with greater caution, I encourage you to stay home and know that you are with us in spirit and love.
God bless us all,
– Fr. Woody
