With the increasing availability of COVID-19 vaccines and the lessening of restrictions by governmental leaders, our Bishop has allowed that churches in the Diocese of Shreveport may function at regular capacity, provided that we maintain at least 3 feet of social distance between families and continue to wear masks at church events.
We at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish have now taken down the ribbon barricades between pews and opened back up so that more people may experience the Mass in person and participate in the joy of the Eucharist. We continue to maintain a sanitary environment which includes multiple touch-free hand sanitizer stations and complimentary face masks for those who have forgotten to bring their own. Groups and organizations are resuming some meetings and activities, and the church is starting to feel vibrant again.
As we journey this pandemic together, let us pray for relief from disease, for healing of all who are sick, for God's peace to fill our hearts and minds, and for the peaceful repose of those souls who have gone before us and comfort for their families.
If you are well and able, we encourage you to resume coming to Mass. Your pew awaits!
