Despite the present pandemic, sufficient social-distant seating has been available for weekday and weekend Masses. Major celebrations, however, such as Christmas and Easter, have routinely brought numbers that would severely compromise social-distancing requirements.
In order to provide a relatively safe environment for anyone wishing to attend Mass on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, reserve seating is required. Signup is available on-line via the link(s) below or by speaking with the parish secretary at 440.647.4375 x0 Monday→Friday from 9AM until 5PM.
Before requesting a reservation, please peruse the graphic below to see how the various sections of the church and how pews are numbered.
While most every pew can fit up to 6-7 individuals, COVID does not allow such capacity. Thus, each pew can now accommodate a max of 2-to-3 people … unless all occupants of the pew reside under the same roof. Families of 3-or-more people living under the same roof should reserve BOTH the aisle AND center section of the same pew (eg. A5a AND A5c).
Reserving your pew via SignUpGenius
is a FOUR STEP PROCESS:
