Message from Cardinal Sean:
The distribution of the Precious Blood for the faithful is suspended, during the flu season.
In addition, the exchange of the Sign of Peace is to be offered without any physical contact. Instead of a handshake, the faithful may bow to the persons nearby.
Finally, parishioners are reminded that if they are ill or suspect they are ill with a contagious illness, they are not bound by the Sunday Mass obligation. They should remain at home and return to church when they are well, waiting at least 24 hours after they have completely recovered.
