The Archdiocese of Baltimore has issued its latest guidance as COVID transmission and positivity rates are falling. Masks are no longer required at Mass or at on-campus ministry activities, effective immediately. This is in accordance with the current mandates of Carroll County. In addition, beginning Feb. 1, we will resume our normally scheduled parish events and programs. For these programs, safety protocols including hand sanitation, social distancing (minimum of three feet) and proper contact tracing must still be undertaken.

We would like to thank you for your continued cooperation in helping to keep our fellow brothers and sisters healthy and safe as we endure this pandemic. If you are more comfortable wearing a mask, you are welcome to do so.

A reminder that if you test positive for COVID or experience flu like symptoms please stay home and take care of yourself. The obligation for Sunday Mass does not apply when one is sick.

God Bless
