2 H S P MASSES FOR 50 PEOPLE IN HOLY SPIRIT PARISH H S P: Below are all the conditions for attending the live Masses which will begin the first weekend of June at both churches. Live Masses will begin on Saturday, June 6, with the 4 PM Masses in Kennebunk and Wells. Sunday, June 7, Masses will be in Kennebunk at 8 & 10 AM and in Wells at 9 & 11 AM. The following week, beginning Monday June 8, we will return to the weekday Masses at Wells at 8 AM and Kennebunk at 9 AM, again with a maximum of 50. Since the priest, lector, cantor, etc., are included in the 50, there will be room for 41 additional parishioners at the weekend Masses and approximately 46 at the weekday Masses. There will be a signup for each of the Masses prior to the first Mass. Due to the limit, one person cannot attend every Mass. The Bishop has suggested that a parishioner attend one or two weekend Masses a month and perhaps select a weekday Mass to attend during the other weeks. We must be willing to share our limited space and seats. The 4 PM and 9 AM Masses will continue to be streamed live over the internet, and the Bishop continues to exempt all from the obligation to attend Sunday (Saturday) Mass. There will be clipboards just outside the doors to the churches (in Wells in the back), indicating the Masses you may sign up to attend. Your phone number is required, as well, in the event we need to contact you. You will need to go to your respective church site to sign up (or have someone do it for you). You will not be able to just show up at a Mass and attend, as the seats will need to be reserved via the signups. S M, MAY 25, F, 10 AM TO 1 PM. You must wear a mask to the signups and remain six feet apart. THERE WILL BE ASSIGNED SEATING, AND YOU MUST SIT ONLY IN THOSE SEATS. THIS IS BECAUSE THOSE SEATS WILL BE THE PROPER DISTANCE FROM OTHERS AND CLOSEST TO THE ALTAR FOR COMMUNION. SINCE THOSE SEATS MUST BE SANITIZED AFTER EACH MASS AND BEFORE THENEXT MASS, WE NEED TO BE ASSURED THAT ONLY THE DISIGNATED SEATS WILL HAVE BEEN USED. Bishop Deeley has helped us determine who and how we should participate. Some of us will have to decide that it is best for our health not to attend at all, but to continue to participate in this virtual way, said the bishop. For this reason, I am continuing the dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass for the time being. It may also be the case that some of you may find it more convenient to attend a daily Mass during the week rather than on Sunday when there could be less people present. I will also encourage our pastors to continue these virtual Masses since, in any case, not everyone will be able to attend each week because there simply will not be the capacity in our churches. Weekend Masses: 4 PM Saturday at both churches; 8 & 10 AM Sunday in Kennebunk; 9 & 11 AM Sunday in Wells. You must sign up ahead of time at the church during the week (usually outside) for a particular Mass, and no one may sign up for two consecutive weekends. The livestream Masses will continue at 4 PM on Saturdays & 9 AM on Sundays. Weekdays: Sign up for a particular day (but not two consecutive days), and follow all the above that is appropriate. There will be eight Masses per week at both churches for a total of 16 Masses in the Parish. Please remember: elderly who are vulnerable or with certain illnesses, or who are not selfambulatory, should probably not attend but, instead, watch Mass streaming online. All must wear a mask (brought with them) at all times in church and remain at least six feet from others. (Continued on next page) 2

3 S S E Masses for 50 (continued) Anyone from outside of Maine who has not quarantined for 14 days in Maine prior to Mass may not attend. When entering church, you must go immediately to the designated seat with mask on and remain at least six feet from others. Those living in the same household may sit together. *PLEASE REFRAIN FROM USING RESTROOMS WHILE AT MASS.* Receive Communion (Host only) in the hand and remain six feet from one another in the Communion line. Move from seat to the line by way of the back or middle crossover aisle of the church, always maintaining six feet apart and wearing a mask. There will be one single line down the middle aisle to receive Communion from just the priest. The priest will stay at the altar as you leave immediately after Mass (refraining from restroom use), staying six feet apart and going directly to your vehicle. Pick up a bulletin on the way out and leave nothing behind in pew or entry. Confessions will not be available before or after Masses. Confessions will remain asdrivethrough on the First Friday of each month at 12 Noon at each church site. Thank you for your cooperation! Saturday: Sunday: THIS WEEKEND: May 23 & 24 4:00 PM Daniel P.

Instead of pursuing supernatural and lasting pleasure, we choose things that are easier and quicker to obtain: sex, drugs, travel, houses, cars, fame, popularity, selfachievement and satisfaction, physical enjoyment, and the like. We may also find ourselves falling victim to more negative responses to what life brings us: anger, envy, lust, pride, gluttony, greed, and apathy. Human hearts can become so hardened to the truth that violence becomes the response of first choice. Being a Prayer Line Requests Christian is hard!
