The Diocese of Springfield recently lifted the mask policy and requires that clergy and laity wear masks per the directives of the local town and for Holy Communion. Since Deerfield has lifted the mandate and the Diocese no longer has any directive in place, masks do not have to be worn in church. It is now up to the individual. This applies to both St. Mark and Holy Family. Also, welcome back HOLY WATER!! One gentleman said to me last Sunday: “Father, I haven’t blessed myself with holy water in 2 years!” Things are looking up!
