ST. PIUS X MASS LOTTERY
Thank you for all your support of our parish and school during this difficult time of pandemic. We appreciate your patience with all the uncertainty and changes that have been placed on our ministry and mission over the last few months.
As we gradually make the change back to public celebrations, it is important to remember that you are still dispensed from the obligation of attending Mass and should not attend if you are ill or immunocompromised. Rather than a first-come/sign-up method, we shall implement a lottery for all interested households that will take into consideration pastoral concerns.
If you would like your household placed in the lottery to attend Holy Mass, fill out the form on this page. Please note that only one form per household is needed.
If your household is selected, you will be contacted via text or email. So, it is essential that the contact information you provide is the most accurate and up-to-date.
You will be told which specific Mass is available for you to attend. Your name must be on the list in order to attend so that we remain in compliance with the law and the guidelines and directives we have received from civic, medical, and ecclesiastical authorities. We understand you may not be able to attend the Mass to which you have been assigned. Know that your name will be placed back into the lottery after everyone has had the opportunity to be chosen.
Specific Mass instructions will be contained in the text or email you will receive. Please note that we will not be able to offer a nursery at this time given the circumstances, and with over 1,800 households we are not able to accommodate requests for specific Mass dates or times. We know that this imposition on attendance is a temporary situation and we look forward to being together soon. We can take heart from Saint Paul’s instruction to the Corinthians about our fragile human condition: “This light momentary affliction is preparing us for an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison.”
Know that you and your loved ones remain in our prayers.
--Reverend Monsignor Anthony Marcaccio
