Registration for Mass

Please read the full protocol before registering to attend Mass in-person. Your cooperation in these extraordinary times embodies our vision to seek the well-being of our community. Archbishop Hebda's dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass continues. 

Guests may only register for Mass one day at a time; registration opens 24 hours prior to the daily Mass and 48 hours before Sunday Mass. To register by phone, please call our Director of Engagement at 612.317.3417.

Registration closes at:

  • 10:00 am for noon weekday Mass
  • Three hours before Mass time on Sundays
  • Registration also closes if the Mass has reached our social distance capacity (currently 130 people on Sundays)
  • Guests for 7:00 am weekday Mass can register at the door, 7:00 am daily Mass attendees only should use the east side Saint Anthony doors.

Following CDC/White House recommendations, consider refraining from in-person Mass attendance if you:

1.) Experienced or have been near someone who experienced: cough, cold, flu, fever of 100°F +, shortness of breath, sore throat, or a loss of taste or smell.

3.) Live in a nursing home, long-term care, or congregant living facility.
4.) Are age 65 or older, particulaly if unvaccinated.

Anyone concerned with interpersonal proximity, even with social distancing, should prayerful consider the prudence of attending Mass in-person.
