Optional Use of Masks at Saint James: October 15, 2021

The use and wearing of Masks is now optional at Saint James Catholic Church. 

Our policy is based on the standards of the Tupelo Public School District (TPSD), and consultation with local physicians and infectious disease specialists.   On October 13, 2021, TPSD no longer requires the use of masks.

When making your decision, please prayerfully consider your health
and the health and well-being of others, especially our elderly and infirm parishioners. 

The use of masks remains an option.  We ask anyone who is not vaccinated to wear a mask.

 Masks are readily available at all Masses and Faith Formation classes.

The Distribution of Holy Communion will continue to be offered only in-the-hand.  This is based on the unanimous advice of the infectious disease specialists consulted by Fr. Tim.

Please know that our priests and staff are grateful for your cooperation and support during these past weeks.  Our priority is to create and maintain a safe and welcoming environment for our children and families.

Covid remains a serious illness.  Please consult your physician if you have not received the vaccine. 

Our prayers remain with you and your families.
