OSGOOD — St. Louis, North Star and St. Nikolas will resume holding Masses the week of Monday, May 25, with various changes. Hymnal books have been removed and churches will open to 50% capacity. Holy water fonts are still empty and the sign of peace will be temporarily suspended.

The churches will rope off the pews not to be used. Weekday Masses will be held as usual, except for the Thursday Mass, which will be moved to 6:15 p.m. As of now, churchgoers are able to skip Mass without committing a sin, and are encourage to go during the weekdays.

Vacation Bible school is canceled at St. Louis and St. Nickolas this year.

First communion will be held at St. Nickolas on Sunday, June 21, at the 10:30 a.m. Mass.
