Dear Parish Family,
Just this morning, we received communication from the Archdiocese of Denver letting us know that there has been further discussion with the Tri-County Health Dept. regarding the interpretation of the state-wide mask mandate. Tri-County officials have shared that their interpretation of the mandate does NOT allow for people who are seated and socially distanced to lower their masks inside public places.
Therefore, the new guidelines we were going to implement this weekend at certain Masses that would allow for lowering of masks, have been rescinded. We will return to our former policy of mandatory face coverings at all times when inside the church building. We are very sorry for the inconvenience and confusion, however we are committed to following the guidelines to the best of our ability and working to help keep our
parishioners and visitors safe at all times.
God bless you,
Fr. Javier Nieva, DCJM
