New Year's Day Mass Signup


Due to the number of parishioners who are expected to come to a New Year's Day Mass from a distance, it is currently necessary to sign up to assist at these Masses. Anyone attending Mass does so at their own risk. Those who are vulnerable are still encouraged to stay home and watch on Please stay home if you or your children are sick.

  • There will not be a separate Mass in the basement, but parishioners are welcome to sign up to watch the Mass on the TV downstairs. Out of charity to other parishioners, please only sign up to assist at one Sunday Mass.
  • The Archbishop asks that all who are age 6 and up wear masks. Masks are available at the entrance of the church, but you are encouraged to bring your own.
  • Holy Communion will be distributed on the tongue as normal in the extraordinary form of the Mass.
  • Physical distancing is required both in the church and in the parking lot. For cleaning and sanitizing purposes, we ask people to leave no later than 10 minutes after Mass.
  • Please arrive at least 5 minutes prior to Mass, or your seat may be forfeited to others trying to attend the Mass.

You do not need to provide your contact information (phone number) to reserve a place at Mass. The email is used for confirmation purposes only.

Please contact Christine at or 253-250-7107 if you have questions or to sign up.

“Every mother, when she picks up the young life that has been born to her, looks up to the heavens to thank GOD for the gift which made the world young again. But here was a Mother, a Madonna, who did not look up. She looked down to Heaven, for this was Heaven in her arms."

~ Ven. Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen ~
