St. Francis Xavier Parish
De Pere, Wisconsin

Communion Service for both parishes to be held at St. Mary on Sunday, May 31. See details below.


St. Francis Xavier and St. Mary Parishes are pleased to announce that a Communion Service with the distribution of the Blessed Sacrament will be held on
Sunday, May 31, continually from 8:00-10:00am, at St. Mary for both parishes.

We are able to accommodate 30 people at a time, so please be patient.
Note that Bishop Ricken has dispensed all Catholics from their Sunday obligation through July 5.

Communicants are strongly encouraged to participate spiritually at Mass by means of television, online or radio before coming to the Communion Service.
If you are unable to do so, please read the Scripture readings of the day or pray a rosary to prepare to receive Holy Communion.

Guidelines for the safe distribution of Holy Communion are:
1. Please park in the main church parking lot. Entrance will be through the center main church doors only.
2. Temperatures will be taken outside the doors, using a non-touch thermometer. Anyone with a fever will not be allowed in the church.
3. Masks are required. Due to our lack of supply, please bring your own mask.
4. Ushers will be present to direct you to receive Holy Communion and to specific doors to exit the church.
5. Physical distancing of 6 ft. will be marked in the church. We ask that you follow the 6 ft. guideline outside the church as well to insure the safety of all parishioners.
6. Those who are not feeling well, those who are age 65 or older, and those with compromised immunity are encouraged to stay home.
7. Communicants may not linger in the church prior to or after receiving Holy Communion and should go immediately to their vehicle without gathering in the parking lot.

Collection baskets for parish support for both St. Francis Xavier and St. Mary will be placed in the Gathering Area.

We are happy to welcome you back to the parish in this limited but powerful way and look forward to seeing you soon. If you are interested in ushering, please call the Parish Office.

MASS INTENTIONS We are now scheduling Mass Intentions for 2021. At this time, our plan is to wait until congregational Masses resume before scheduling new intentions for the rest of 2020. For the 2020 Mass Intentions that have not been said at congregational Masses, we also plan to reschedule those as our current schedule allows so that parishioners will be able to join together to pray for your loved ones.

All of us at the Parish Office are keeping your loved ones in our prayers. We encourage all of our parishioners to pray for them as well. May God keep you and your family in His loving care.
