Changes to Virus-Related Restrictions at St. Mary’s

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

As more of our fellow parishioners become vaccinated and are starting to return to Mass, the Bishop has altered previous restrictions. Your safety is my utmost priority. At the same time, we are making it possible for people to safely attend the various liturgies of the Church in order to receive the life-giving Sacraments, most especially the sacred Body and Blood of Our Lord in the Holy Mass.

Here is a quick summary of the changes:

Weekly Reflection

I Will Not Leave You Orphans

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

On May 6, the City of Aiken rescinded its mandatory requirement for masks in retail and commercial establishments, while not prohibit individual businesses from requiring them. Churches, as religious institutions, have been exempt; however, we have followed the lead of our Bishop, who has strongly encouraged many things for parishes, including especially face coverings since we gather a great number of people under one roof.
