Returning to Weekend Masses….one step at a time…
As we work to re-open our churches safely, I am pleased to announce that we will begin celebrating PUBLIC MASSES on SATURDAYS, starting next weekend, JUNE 27th.
4 pm at Our Lady of Victory
5 pm at Gate of Heaven
Even if we are in the Green Phase, we must still follow all the guidelines set forth by our Bishop for social distancing, so the attendance at these Masses will be limited.
Reservations are a must for Saturday evening Masses. To make a reservation please call Gate of Heaven or Our Lady of Victory parish office (GOH: 570-675-2121, ext 105 / OLV: 570-639-1535).
You can all make a reservation on line (www.goholv.org) Click on the reservation link.
Reservations must be placed by Thursday at 3 pm to give us time to compile a list and sent out the confirmations. We will be able to take approximately 30 at OLV and approximately 50 at GOH. Once you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation. You must bring the confirmation with you to Mass. If you want to attend Mass on Saturday you must call each week beginning on Monday for the following Saturday.
Please be patient and kind and remember that we would like to be able to give as many parishioners as possible the chance to attend Mass. Please understand that we have to evaluate everything we are doing and work with changing guidelines. My assumption is that Saturday Masses will continue.
