In light of the update from the CDC which allows those who are fully vaccinated to stop wearing face masks and social distancing even indoors, Archbishop Gregory Hartmayer issued a memo that the Archdiocese of Atlanta will continue to recommend the wearing of face masks at Masses, but will give pastors discretion to allow vaccinated people to remove them.
In our church, we will follow the recommendation of the Archdiocese of Atlanta to continue wearing face masks for everyone’s safety and peace of mind. If you do not wish to wear a face mask, please respect the space of those who do not feel comfortable being in close proximity to people without face masks. We want everyone to feel welcome in our church. Thank you for your cooperation!
