Coming Together Safely
Please follow the guidelines of "Coming Together Safely" to maintain an inclusive and safe worship environment for all.
St. Odilia has undertaken precautionary cleaning and disinfecting to help reduce the risk of exposure. However, St. Odilia cannot guarantee that visitors are 100% safe from exposure to COVID-19. Therefore, we will continue to offer live-streaming of Mass for those who are not fully vaccinated or have underlying health conditions.
From the Archdiocese:
Persons are excused from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays or Holy Days under certain circumstances. As recently indicated by the Minnesota Catholic Conference, these include: (1) You have reason to believe your health would be significantly compromised if you were to contract a communicable illness (i.e., you have underlying conditions or are in a high-risk category). (2) You exhibit flu-like symptoms. (3) You have good reason to think you might be asymptomatic of a contagious illness (e.g., you were in recent contact with someone who tested positive for a contagious illness such as COVID-19 or influenza). (4) You care for the sick, homebound, or infirmed. (5) You are pregnant or you are 65 years of age or older (per the CDC’s recommendation for high-risk individuals). (6) You cannot attend Mass through no fault of your own (e.g., no Mass is offered; you are infirm; or, while wanting to go, you are prevented for some reason you cannot control, such as your ride did not show up). And (7) You have significant fear or anxiety of becoming ill by being at Mass.
Many of our faithful are understandably concerned about COVID-19/coronavirus. We continue to monitor reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC) and Minnesota Department of Health. Please join in praying for all those affected by COVID-19/coronavirus.
