News & Announcements

Dear Parishioners,                                         10/9/20
We have been notified that a member of our Life Teen Core team has tested positive for COVID-19. This person's last visit to Resurrection Church was at the outdoor Mass on Sunday, October 4th at 5:30pm. We believe that there was little or no contact with others. This team member did not lead a group of students that evening, but was part of the choir under the tent.

Close contact is defined as 15 minutes within 6 feet or unmasked. Anyone who had close contact is asked to monitor their health for 14 days and consult their physician if necessary. Those who had close contact with this individual have been notified.

We have notified the Archdiocese of Boston and the Hingham Board of Health. Exercising every precaution, we are notifying you. The health and safety of our parishioners, volunteers and staff are of utmost importance to us. We continue to require that everyone attending Mass wear face covering over their nose and mouth during their entire visit to the church and that social distance be practiced. We have been blessed to have a wonderful outdoor space at Resurrection to celebrate the Eucharist. It is important that we follow appropriate protocols as we worship together.

God Bless you and your family,
Fr. Tom Nestor, Pastor
