MASS GUIDELINES

Healthy on Campus - Everyone's Responsibility

¡Welcome!

We are excited that Bishop Taylor has lifted the dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass in person (see complete letter here)! With the increased Mass attendance, we remain even more committed to following the healthcare guidelines established by CDC, the State of Arkansas Health Department (AHO), and the Diocese of Little Rock to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. To ensure a safe and healthful environment for our St. Vincent de Paul parishioners, staff, and guests, we want to remind you that our COVID-19 protocols remain the same throughout our Parish campus. When coming to Mass, please remember to: 

WEAR A CLOTH MASK

That covers the nose and mouth at all times

  • Exceptions: Children under 1O years old, person is serving as a lector, cantor, or has a speaking role with at least 12 feet physical distance from others

  • DO NOT enter the Church without wearing a cloth mask

  • CANNOT remain at Mass if you remove your mask

  • If using a faceshield, you MUST wear a cloth mask under it too

USE HAND

SANITIZER

Before entering the Worship Space, Weekday Chapel, or any other church facility. Several hand sanitizer stations are located all over the church for your convenience

KEEP 6' APART

Physical distance from non-household members

  • Equivalent to three empty chairs or empty seats

REMAIN HOME

  • If you feel ill

  • Have a temperature of 100.4° F (38° C)

  • And/or exibit other COVID-19 related symptoms

Arrive Early.

Due to increased attendance, doors to the Worship Space (1) will close when Mass starts. Ushers then will direct parishioners to sit in the Gathering Space (2). Once full, parishioners will be asked to sit in the Weekday Chapel (3)or the JPII Room (4) in the Ministry Building, where Mass will be livestreamed. See Mass overflow plan below:
