NEW MASS SCHEDULE
AT THE GROTTO
BEGINNING IN MAY
WE WILL CELEBRATE MASS OUTDOORS AT THE GROTTO, WEATHER PERMITTING, AT 11:30 ON TUESDAYS, THURSDAYS, SATURDAYS AND SUNDAYS.
NO RESERVATIONS ARE NEEDED TO PARTICIPATE IN THESE MASSES.
WE DO ASK THAT YOU BRING A MASK TO WEAR WHEN YOU COME UP FOR COMMUNION.
IF YOU ARE NOT VACCINATED, WE URGE YOU TO WEAR A MASK FOR THE ENTIRE MASS. THIS IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT IN LIGHT OF THE CURRENT SPREAD OF THE DELTA VARIANT OF COVID.
IN THE EVENT OF RAIN, WE WILL CELEBRATE MASS IN OUR GROTTO CHAPEL.
Some things to remember if you want to come to a Mass at the Grotto:
- You must bring a mask with you to wear when you come to receive communion.
- Bring some hand sanitizer for yourself.
- You should keep some distance between you and others when you come up for communion.
- If you receive communion, you are strongly urged to receive it in the hand. If you insist on receiving on the tongue, you must be the last to receive communion.
The Montfort Missionaries will celebrate Mass on-line at Montfort House Chapel on Wednesdays and Fridays.
The videos of these Masses and the Masses at the Grotto and in our Grotto Chapel are available on our YouTube Channel: Lourdes in Litchfield Montfort House.
