Dear Parish Family,
As you may be aware, the Mayor of Springfield has issued a Mask Mandate for all public spaces in the City of Springfield, which includes religious houses of worship. The mandate requires that masks be worn at all times when in a public space. The mayor has indicated that those individuals who are in violation of this mandate will be assessed a $50 fine for each violation, and the institution (that is, this church) will be assessed a $250 fine for the first offense, with subsequent offenses incurring a $500 fine. The mandate went into effect Wednesday, November 18.
Please be advised that the dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass remains in effect.
Thank you for your cooperation in observing this mandate here at Little Flower.
