MEMORANDUM March 8, 2020

As you may already know, the archdiocese has put in place certain measures to minimize the spread of the coronavirus currently in the news. The following is being implemented in the Church of the Holy Family:

  • Holy Communion in one type (without administration of the Precious Blood) at Mass

  • Do not hold hands during the Our Father

  • Suspension of the Sign of Peace at Mass (deacons / priests will not declare: "Let us offer each other a sign of peace")

  • It is recommended that they greet each other with "a smile and a bow"

The following has always been implemented and recommended in Holy Family:

  • Extraordinary ministers should use alcohol-based hand sanitizer directly before and after the distribution of Holy Communion.

  • People who are sick with any signs of a virus, bacteria, or flu should stay home to protect our congregation and to prevent the spread of any virus or bacteria to vulnerable people.

Additionally, we are taking precautions to clean common surfaces with disinfectant wipes to prevent the spread of any contagion, and we have increased signage on how to prevent the spread of germs.

Thank you for understanding, Fr. Miguel Grave de Peralta

UPDATE: 5:59PM March 13, 2020 from the Archdiocese of Atlanta.

Dear Friends, During Lent we are called to live the gospel of Jesus Christ more fully. The COVID-19 outbreak has challenged us to discern ways to increase our outreach to one another, while at the same time exercising greater prudence in the ways in which we render Christ-like care. We all need to be present to those on the margins who may be fearful and vulnerable right now. The mission of the Church continues, even if it looks a little different than before. Recognizing the grave cause of the current public health emergency, I dispense all the Catholic faithful of the Archdiocese of Atlanta and all Catholics currently in the Archdiocese of Atlanta from the obligation of attending Sunday Mass for the weekends of March 14-15; 21-22; and 28-29. This decision was made with input from the priests who comprise the archdiocesan College of Consultors and senior staff. We also wish to update some other pastoral guidelines. Some of these have already been instituted. Others are being added AS OF SATURDAY, MARCH 14. For continuing updates on how the Archdiocese of Atlanta is responding to COVID-19, visit our website, https://archatl.com/. Holy Mass: Even without the present dispensation, people who are ill should not attend Mass, but they can still participate from home by watching a televised or broadcast Mass. The faithful can also make an act of spiritual communion. At the bottom of the memo, there is a list of parishes that offer video Masses as well as resources for spiritual acts of communion. More can be found on the COVID-19 section of https://archatl.com/. ... The Archdiocese of Atlanta will provide a COVID-19 link on the homepage of the website to post updates on advisories from the Office of the Administrator. Updates will be posted regularly as the situation continues to evolve. We recommend you monitor national and local health agencies for more timely updates on the spread of this virus and follow the recommendations of health agencies as we move forward.
