Guidelines for Return to Mass

Welcome Back!

St. Francis Xavier has re-opened for Mass!

There is parking in the North Lot, on the street (Wisconsin Street is open), and in the new School Parking Lot.

Enter through west side church doors.

Welcome to all who have been able to join us for Mass. Thank you for following the guidelines and keeping everyone in mind before, during and following Mass. Please continue to keep the following guidelines in mind for Mass:

1.    Masks and temperature-taking are required. Please bring your own mask. A no-contact thermometer has been set up in the Gathering Area in front of the church doors. Please use this device before entering church. 2.    Ushers will be seating people in every other row of pews as we continue to practice safe social distancing. 3.    We ask that you follow the 6 ft. guideline outside the church to insure the safety of all parishioners. 4.    Those who are showing symptoms of illness, such as cough or fever, even if not COVID-related, in the spirit of Christian charity, should remain home. 5.    Confession/Baptism/Funeral/Wedding ceremonies will be held with appropriate distancing and required masks. 6.    Confessions are being heard at on Saturday, 3:00-3:45pm. The diocese also issued guidelines for public Masses here.
