Worship in Person
As followers of Christ, we’re called to gather and worship together. However, in today’s current climate, it is important that we do so in a safe and meaningful way.
At St. Isidore, your health and safety are deeply important to us. We have created a safe and meaningful reentry that honors the CDC’s recommendations for social distancing, best health and safety practices.

The New Normal
The safety of all those who choose to worship in person is our top priority. That is why we have been diligently working to create a safe and meaningful environment that honors recommendations of the Archdiocese and CDC for social distancing, best health and safety practices.
Thank you for doing your part to keep everyone safe!
Requirements for Mass
If any of these are uncomfortable for you, we understand and would encourage you to watch our Mass at home.
Face masks are required
All parishioners and guests must wear a face mask at all times and must keep both mouth and nose covered with the mask.
6 feet of social distancing is required at all times. Due to this requirement, congregating before or after Mass in the gathering space is strictly prohibited.
Guests will be seated pew by pew starting at the front of the church by parish representatives. Pews cannot be “saved,” so please enter with your family/group.
End of Mass
When Mass ends, please wait in your seats for parish volunteers to direct you out of your pew to the exits. Please do not leave early (before the final blessing).
Can I enter Mass without a facemask?
No. The Archdiocese of Detroit has mandated that all Mass attendees wear a face mask.
Will I be allowed to attend Mass if I did not register prior to arrival?
If room exists, we will register you upon your arrival. This process, although quick, will cause delays. If at all possible, we ask that everyone registers prior to arriving.
Can I sit in my “usual” seat at Mass?
No. Ushers will direct you to your seat. This will allow us to maximize capacity, so as many people as possible can safely attend Mass.
How do I receive Communion?
There is no common cup. We are recommending that as many people as possible receive the Eucharist in the hand. If you would like to receive on the tongue, you will be asked to do so only after all of those wanting to receive in the hand have already done so.
Can I use the restroom?
Yes, but we strongly encourage everyone to use the bathroom prior to arriving on campus
Can I leave Mass early?
No. We are asking that all Mass attendees stay until the end of Mass. At that time, the ushers will assist with exiting in the safest possible manner.
Are there bulletins?
No. We have suspended the production of the bulletin. Most information that would usually be found in the bulletin can now be found on our website stisidore.church or on our app.
When will the sign of peace, the common cup, and holy water return to the Liturgy?
The Archdiocese of Detroit has provided liturgical directives which disclude each of these items from the Mass. We will wait for further direction from the AOD prior to considering infusing these back into our liturgical celebrations.
