Guide for Attending Mass at St. Augustine Church

Updated Thursday, January 6, 2022


In the light of spiking numbers of new COVID cases and the increase in those numbers, Cardinal Seán, the Archbishop of Boston, has put in place the safety protocols.

This revised mandate took effect the weekend of December 18/19, 2021, and expires on March 3, 2022.

  • All attendees at public Masses, including wedding and funerals, must wear masks.
  • Children under the age of five are not required to wear masks.
  • Children under the age of two should not wear masks.
  • Mass celebrants, deacons, readers, servers, choir members, and instrumentalists, will all wear masks except when they are speaking.
  • All those distributing Holy Communion must wear a mask.
  • There will not be any distribution of the Precious Blood.
  • This sign of peace during Mass will continue indefinitely in a "touchless" manner, with a wave.
  • There will be no offertory procession. Offertory contributions will be placed in baskets as one enters church.
