Beginning in June there can be no more than 50 persons in the church at a time.

It is required to make an online reservation of a place in the church at the Mass. There is a link on the website of our parish “Registration for the Mass” where parishioners can choose the time of the Mass and the amount of places. The confirmation of the reservation will be checked in the church if needed.

Some rules of attending the Mass:

  • Social distancing of at least 1 meter must be maintained.
  • Only the marked seats may be used. However, members of the same household may sit together in the same row.
  • The use of a mask in the church is recommended.
  • When entering church and before Communion all faithful must sanitize their hands. It is not needed to say “Amen” at the Communion.
  • Holy Water is not available in the church, and the Sign of the Peace by shaking hands is left out.
  • Only persons who sanitize their hands before the Mass can take hymnals.
  • The collection is taken at the door at the end of Mass.
  • After the Mass has ended, it is not permitted to stay in the sanctuary in order to socialize.

The church wardens will be needed for at least Sunday Masses. A warden ensures that only pre-registered faithful enter the Mass, collects collections when people leave the church, and cleans surfaces in the church before the Mass. We ask willing parishioners to contact the parish office.

We will celebrate the solemnity of the Holy Trinity on the next Sunday, 7.6. There will be Mass in Finnish at 10 am and 11.30, Mass in English at 1 pm and 6 pm and Mass in Polish at 4 pm.

The Easter duty is that after being initiated into the Most Holy Eucharist, each of the faithful is obliged to receive Holy Communion at least once a year. This precept must be fulfilled during the Easter season (from Easter vigil to Pentecost). Due to the corona virus pandemic, the fulfillment of the Easter duty has been extended until the solemnity of Christ the King on November 22, 2020.

We continue to celebrate public Masses in accordance with the recommendations of the authorities that there can be no more than 10 persons in the church at a time, taking into account safety distances and hygiene.

The exemption from the Sunday obligation by participating in the Holy Mass is still valid for the time being. However, the Church invites all believers to follow the Mass through the Internet and to maintain a regular prayer life among their families. Not entering the church in the normal way is not an exemption from giving time to God.

Pope Francis’ prayer for protection from Coronavirus

O Mary, you shine continuously on our journey as a sign
of salvation and hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick.
At the foot of the Cross you participated in Jesus’ pain,
with steadfast faith.
You, Salvation of the Roman People, know what we need.
We are certain that you will provide, so that,
as you did at Cana of Galilee,
joy and feasting might return after this moment of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love,
to conform ourselves to the Father’s will
and to do what Jesus tells us:
He who took our sufferings upon Himself,
and bore our sorrows to bring us,
through the Cross, to the joy of the Resurrection.
Amen.
We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God.
Do not despise our pleas – we who are put to the test
– and deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.
