RRR: Why sign up for Mass? and more
Welcome to our next issue of Renew, Recharge, Respond (RRR)!
- Wednesday, 9/9: Mark your calendars now for this year's free flu clinic on Thursday, October 15th, from 2 PM until 6 PM in the Parish Center (socially distanced). Registration is required. Please visit www.umstjoseph.org/flu or call 410-337-1337 for more information and to register.
- UM SJMC will provide vaccination to anyone age nine or older
- Ages 9 - 17 require a parent/guardian signature
- High-risk individuals are especially encouraged to be vaccinated
- *Only standard dose quadrivalent vaccine provided
- Thursday, 9/10: We invite all families who have school-aged children and are not enrolled in a Catholic school for the fall to sign up for our Sunday School of Religion (SSR) program. Classes start on September 20th. For more information or to register your child, visit this link.
- Friday, 9/4: Sign up for Mass! We ask families (one person per household) to sign up each week. Here's why:
- As families return from summer travel and children have started school, our Mass attendance is increasing. If we reach our maximum number of families signed up, we will need to ask folks to attend another Mass, in order to preserve social distancing and cleaning procedures at every Mass.
- If there is a situation where someone has COVID-19 symptoms and/or tests positive for the virus, we need to be able to contact trace who was at that Mass, to communicate the situation to those who attended.
