All Lyme, Old Lyme Churches Continue Online Services, Christ The King Also Offers In-Person Masses for (Max.) 100

LYME-OLD LYME — In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, all churches in Lyme and Old Lyme are again planning online services for this Sunday, Aug. 2. Christ The King, however, will also offer in-person masses with a restriction on the number of congregants.

CHRIST THE KING CHURCH:

At Christ The King, public attendance will now be allowed at weekday mass only (Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.), in accordance with directives from the Norwich Diocese.  All who attend will be required to wear face masks, use hand sanitizer, and follow social distancing guidelines. This mass will continue to be live-streamed via Zoom for those who cannot come to church or are in a vulnerable population and wish to stay home..

Details of this weekend’s services are as follows:

Public attendance is now allowed at weekend Masses, as announced by Bishop Cote.  Christ the King Church will return to its usual schedule of Masses: 5 p.m. Saturday; 8 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Sunday.

All who attend will be required to wear face masks, use hand sanitizer, and follow social distancing guidelines, and attendance will be limited to no more than 100 at each Mass.  Because of this, a brief survey has been created — only three questions — which will helps determine how many parishioners to expect at each Mass. 

If you are sick, have a fever, or think you may have been exposed to the Coronavirus, stay home.

The Sunday obligation to attend Mass is still suspended, and Masses will continue to be live-streamed via Zoom for those who cannot come to church or prefer to stay home.
