We are following all CDC, State, and town guidelines, in consultation with medical professionals in our parish. Due to town and RCAB mandates masks are required in both churches. This applies to all persons aged 2 years or older, regardless of vaccination status. We will continue to maintain a socially distanced seating area in both churches. Priests, deacons, and Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion will continue to wear masks during the distribution of Communion and will disinfect their hands prior to the distribution

In Effect through March 3, 2022
In the light of the continued growth in the numbers of new COVID cases, Cardinal Seán is extending the current mask mandate. It is mandated that that throughout the archdiocese all people attending public Masses, including weddings and funerals, wear masks. This is an extension of the mandate currently in effect, and expires on Thursday, March 3, 2022, which is the day after Ash Wednesday. Mass celebrants, deacons, readers, servers, choir members, and instrumentalists, must all wear masks except when they are speaking.
Children under the age of five are not required to wear masks. Children under the age of two should not wear masks. In addition, all churches must continue to provide a designated area in which social distancing is respected for those who want to use it. Parishes should have masks available for people inasmuch as possible.

Updated mask policy for Faith Formation Classes: Per the Archdiocese of Boston – “Parishes that hold in-person gatherings for children’s faith formation and youth ministry that take place indoors – that is, any indoor faith formation programming involving those under the age of 18 - must require masks for all participants now through November 1. Masks are not required for children under 2 and are at the discretion of the parents for children aged 2 to 5.” We will continue to update you on any changes to this policy.
As a reminder, the Department of Public Health issued a public health advisory effective July 30 that advises all unvaccinated residents to continue to wear masks in indoor settings and when they can’t socially distance. The advisory also recommends that vaccinated residents who are at increased risk from COVID-19, or who live with someone at increased risk, should wear a face covering indoors (other than in their home).
Here at Blessed Trinity Parish, we continue to have a reserved section at each church for socially distant seating (marked with blue tape). Please refrain from sitting in that space unless you need or wish to maintain a safe distance from others at Mass. As for wearing masks at either church:
