    Mass Schedule
    Fr. Rich will be having TWO Masses on Saturday evenings for a period of time (2nd one will be at either 6 or 7 pm) as well as both a morning daily Mass AND an evening one in order to allow multiple opportunities for those who would like to come back to Mass, but may not be able to because of the crowd limitations. Sunday Masses will be at the same time as before, but the 9 am maybe at the Parish Center. If we have a very nice day weather-wise, we may even offer a Mass or two outside so that we’ll be in the open air & parishioners can bring their own chairs.
    Each weekday will have the normal 8 am Mass plus an evening Mass in the Parish Center as below:

    Mon Nov 23, 8 pm
    Tue Nov 24, 5:30 pm
    Wed Nov 25, 7 pm
    Thu Nov 26 - no night Mass
    Fri Nov 27, 3 pm

    Each week we will also have:
       7:00 pm Saturday Mass in the Parish Center
       3:00 pm Sunday Mass in the Church.

    Confession Schedule  
    On nice days, Fr. Rich will be out in the parking lot during designated days/times to hear confessions. If you wish to have anonymity, simply drive up behind him and you can stay in your car if you’d like (or you can walk up behind him. He won’t turn around). If you prefer, you can bring a chair and have a face to
    face confession, or you can also take a walk around the parking lot with Father. The choice is yours. Again, the times will vary, based on his schedule, but we will post them on our Facebook page and the website, and if time permits, the
    bulletin. (The bulletin is generally submitted about 9 days before the weekend it’s intended for, so it is sometimes difficult to anticipate what that schedule may be).

    Sun Nov 22, 9:30-10:15 am
    Mon Nov 23 after 8 am Mass
    Fri Nov 27 after 3 pm Mass (PC)
    Sat Nov 28, 3-3:45 pm

    Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
    Adoration has moved inside the Parish Center. Due to the limited space in the chapel (only al-lowing 1-2 people at a time inside under social distancing guidelines), we have Adoration set up in classrooms 1 & 2 (which have been transformed into a chapel) Adorers will enter by the door at the front left of the building & you will be able to access the door for the temporary chapel from there. For now, the times will still be M-F from 11 am-8 pm and then First Saturday Adoration will be 10 am-3 pm. Masks are required and there will be limits on the number of Adorers that can be in there at one time. We ask that you help us by sanitizing your chair/kneeler before you leave with the wipes/disinfectant provided. Thank you! If there are more than 4 people  (or if you arrive early), you can also see the Blessed Sacrament from the windows outside.

    Hello Parish Family!  (5/28/20)
    We are happy to announce that Masses will resume this weekend, but with multiple restrictions. Due to the 6-foot social distancing rule, we have very limited seating capacity in the church and parish center. At the church, we have approximately 45/50 available seats per Mass and at the Parish Center, it's about 55 (after 3 days of re-configuring, again and again, using tape measures to ensure the 6-foot buffer between people/families). Due to this limitation, we are following the Diocesan recommendation to have seating by reservation only at this time so that we don't have to turn anyone away at the door.
    Beginning Thursday, 5/28 you can access the online reservation form via our Facebook page or our website. Please be sure to account for the number of people in your household joining you so that we can accommodate your family with seating together. It helps us to know ahead of time so that we can maximize the seating capacity under the guidelines. We encourage you to use the online reservation system as it is quite simple and it will cut down on the number of calls to the office. Those without internet access can call the office at 508-824-5707.

    At this time, it's important to note that the Bishop has continued the Dispensation regarding the Sunday obligation of Mass due to the pandemic. This means there is NOT an obligation to attend Mass on the weekend, for the time being, so please don't worry if you can't get a reservation, or you are not comfortable coming back yet.
    Those that are in the high-risk categories (over 65, have a compromised immune system, or have someone that lives with them that fall in that category) are encouraged to continue to view the Masses online or on TV until you feel safe to return to Mass. For anyone wanting to come to Mass, but might be concerned about the more crowded weekend Masses, we are offering an additional 6 Masses per week to accommodate all who may want to attend. All Masses the first week will be by reservation only. After we see the numbers the first week, if weekday attendance is lower, we will just continue with weekend reservations, but there may be a need to continue weekday reservations if the numbers are high. Additional Masses will be held at the Parish Center so that it gives ample time for sanitation of the church between Masses (and then the Parish Center when the church is being used). There will be an extra Saturday vigil at 7:00 PM, and then in addition to weekday Masses at the Church at 8 am, we will have a "pop-up" Mass each evening Monday-Friday at the Parish Center (times will be posted in another post). Should you get a weekend Mass this coming weekend, we ask that you refrain from signing up next weekend to allow someone else to go that may not have gotten one of the reserved spots this weekend. You are most welcome to go to additional weekday Masses by reservation during the course of the week.

    When coming to Mass, everyone entering the church will be required to wear a face mask. All parishioners will come in via the handicap ramp so that we can keep everyone 6 feet apart as they come into the church. Once inside, simply give your name to the attendant and they will let you know where you'll be sitting. You will be assigned a seat(s) based on the registration so that we can accommodate everyone that is signed up (we have designated areas for parties of 1, 2, 3, etc...) There will be no missalettes/hymnals and bulletins can be seen online only at this time. The bulletins can be viewed by going to our website at www.hfparish.net. During this unusual time, Fr. Rich will be temporarily distributing Communion at the conclusion of Mass as you leave by the back of the church only in the hand. Should you need the handicap ramp to exit, you are most welcome to leave that way. We encourage anyone who can depart by the front steps to leave the church as soon as they receive communion.

    We know this is a strange and very unusual time. Please know that you are all in our prayers and we are doing everything we can to keep everyone safe and healthy. We thank you all for your patience and understanding as we step into phase 1. May God bless you all, and again, thank you so much for all of your support and prayers during this unprecedented time.
    THANK YOU!
