Easing COVID Restrictions per Archdiocese of Boston
As of May 29, 2021 masks are no longer required for vaccinated people in the State of Massachusetts. The State does advise that non-vaccinated people continue to wear masks.
It is understood that different people will be ready to take off their masks and sit near one another at different times. St James is prepared to accommodate those who are ready to take off their masks and sit near others, and those who are not.
Some people who are comfortable dropping social distancing may not yet be comfortable taking off their masks. Their choice is to be respected and please feel free to continue to wear masks as long as they like.
There is no longer a requirement for pre-registration before attending Mass.
