FACE MASKS REQUIRED FOR ALL PEOPLE GATHERED IN CHURCHES
Updated June 29th, 2020 at 2:00 PM
For some time people have been asking whether face masks are required for services at St. Mary’s Cathedral. We have strongly advised people, for the common good and the safety of all, to wear face masks or some form of face covering over the nose and mouth.
Today we received notice that face masks are required for all people attending church services, beginning immediately.
In cooperation with the governor’s office, and with the Oregon Health Authority, the Archdiocese of Portland has remained in strict compliance with the guidelines issued by these civil and health authorities. On Friday, June 26, we received a definitive answer to our inquiry whether masks are required for counties in both Phase I and Phase 2 of reopening in Oregon. The answer is yes.
Those excepted from wearing masks are those who perform “activity that makes wearing a mask . . . not feasible, like the presider (throughout Mass), and lectors and cantors (while reading and singing). Exceptions are also made for people with disabilities and children 12 and under. Children 2 and under should not wear masks.
By archdiocesan requirement, masks must still be worn by ministers when distributing Holy Communion.
At this point, people attending cathedral must bring their own mask. We hope to have additional masks at the door by next week. Let’s do our best to be in compliance of these common sense measures. Thank you!
Msgr. Patrick S. Brennan
