We are happy to announce that, following the new guidelines from the Archdiocese of Boston, and effective May 29, vaccinated churchgoers will no longer be required to wear masks in church, and the churches will not be required to maintain social distancing in the pews during services. Both churches are fully open during services, and therefore reservations are no longer required for seating at Mass.
At the same time, the Collaborative understands that some people may prefer to continue social distancing. So Blessed Sacrament Church will designate one quadrant of the church for socially distanced seating. Anyone who wishes to continue to wear a mask is, of course, very welcome, and can sit anywhere in either church.
We would also like to note that the dispensation from the obligation for coming to Sunday Mass has not yet been lifted, and even when it is, if a parishioner is feeling ill, they should remain at home.
