COVID-19 Update

Dear SJPII Catholic Classical School Families,
Please click the links below for more information regarding COVID-19.
As a Catholic school we pray for those who are ill and to keep us all healthy.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) has announced that Michigan is entering a post-surge, recovery phase of the COVID-19 pandemic. Because this development, as well as recently updated information from the CDC, the Archdiocese of Detroit is making some adjustments to its guidelines for liturgies.

We continue to see different levels of risk across the counties within the Archdiocese. Please check the CDC’s COVID-19 by County tool for information on the risk level of your county.

In addition, here are some points to consider as you evaluate the best way to serve in your parish at this time:
The Archdiocese of Detroit encourages Mass-goers, if they are at risk to wear face-coverings and to practice social distancing to reduce the potential of exposure to COVID-19
The Archdiocese of Detroit recommends that each pastor/In Solidumteam of priests should evaluate their location in the Archdiocese and implement the following protocols:Establish an area where social distancing may be observed, if needed
Encourage masking and social distancing for those who are at risk
Evaluate the need in your parish for those who distribute Holy Communion to wear face-coverings and use hand sanitizer
Hang signage indicating masking and social distancing are encouraged for those who are at risk
Ensure that hand sanitizer is available at church entrances
The faithful are reminded that particular dispensations from the obligation to participate in Holy Mass remain in effect for people who are ill or who find themselves in other specific circumstances.
